The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources reminds ice fishermen when to remove their shelters.  Today, March 7th, is the deadline for the southern two-thirds of the state. 

In the north, anglers there have until March 21st.  Fish houses on the Iowa-Minnesota border were already required to be removed.  Saturday, March 12th, is the deadline for the removal of structures on the Minnesota border with North and South Dakota.

Any structure left on the lakes after the various deadlines could bring on fines – or the shelters could be confiscated.
