Deadline To Remove Ice Houses Approaches

It’s time to start getting those ice houses off of Minnesota lakes, but for some it’s not going to be an easy task.

Some Minnesotans were running into problems, and it’s not just the snow that’s giving people a hard time. Houses that have been out there for a while can get stuck in the ice.

Anglers say they’ve spent hours Thursday chiseling, prying and even using axes to break the ice houses free from the lake.

Houses must be off southern and central Minnesota lakes by Monday and off northern Minnesota lakes by March 17.

In recent days the DNR has fielded calls from ice anglers statewide asking for advice about their problems to meet state deadlines.
