Time to take houses off the ice

By Bill Bartusek

Now that the big game fishing has ended, ice houses will have to come off the ice by March 1. This regulation applies to all houses in the southern two-thirds of the state. North of that line they can remain on the ice until March 16. Look up the exact line in the fishing regulation book.

You can still use your ice house during daytime, but you must remove the house each day before midnight. For those of you who still want to pursue walleyes, you can head to border waters like the Mississippi River when the season is still open.
