Hook and Hunting: Shanty Removal

Posted: Updated:

Ice fisherman from the upper lower peninsula down to the middle of the state have until midnight tomorrow to remove their ice shanties.

After the mandatory deadline, shanties can still be put up during the day, but have to be removed daily.

And of course, just because you can put them up doesn't mean you should if the ice is unsafe.

You should always check conditions first before wandering out on ice covered lakes.

Shanty owners who's structure falls through the ice will have to pay a penalty.
