Wisconsin DNR Reminds Anglers To Remove Ice Houses This Week

Monday, February 27th, 2012 at 8:02 am

The Wisconsin state Department of Natural Resources wants ice anglers to start thinking about packing up their shanties.

The deadline for clearing the shacks off Wisconsin-Iowa boundary waters was last week. The deadline for Minnesota boundary waters is Thursday. The Michigan boundary water deadline is March 15.

The DNR is urging anglers to get their shanties off the ice ahead of the deadlines. Agency officials say open water is appearing and ice along shorelines has grown thin, making access treacherous.  To make matters worse, a big snowstorm is potentially on the way, which can make ice conditions worsen.
