An argument over ice shanties apparently led to a woman attacking two ice fishermen in Michigan, USA - with a fish!

The 29-year-old woman approached the two men who were ice fishing on Black Lake and asked them if they would look the other way while she urinated on the ice.

While their backs were turned she hit one of the men on the head with what is reported to be a suckerfish. She then used the fish to slap the second man in the face.

Fishermen use ice shanties, like those pictured above, to provide shelter during ice fishing. It's thought that the woman was upset that the two fishermen had erected their shanty too close to her's.

The men who were attacked decided not to press charges.
