Anglers must remove shanties

IRON MOUNTAIN – Anglers are reminded that on Michigan-Wisconsin boundary waters, ice shanties must be removed by midnight Sunday.

All other bodies of water in the Upper Peninsula must have ice shanties removed by midnight March 31.

“Regardless of the required date, ice shanties must be removed before the ice becomes too weak to support them,” said F/Lt. Jason Wicklund of the Michigan Department of Natural Resources Law Enforcement Division. “It’s the angler’s responsibility to safely remove their shanty before it falls through the ice.”

Shanties must be removed from Wisconsin waters north of Highway 64 by the end of Sunday.
