The Minnesota DNR would like to remind anglers that the date for removing ice fishing shelters from lakes is coming soon.

In the southern two-thirds of the state, structures must be off lakes by the end of the day Monday, March 5. For structures on lakes in the northern third of the state, the deadline is by the end of the day March 19.

If shelters are not removed by the deadline, owners will be prosecuted and structures may be confiscated and removed, or destroyed by a conservation officer.
