Ice anglers should tell DNR about stuck shanties

Posted:
MADISON, Wis. (AP) -- -

Wisconsin Department of Natural Resources wardens are asking ice anglers to tell them about stuck shanties as removal dates loom.

The agency says anglers have been asking for advice about how to meet the deadlines because their shanties are frozen in after temperatures climbed into the 40s and then dipped below zero again.

The wardens say anglers should do their best to get the shanties out by the deadlines. Anglers sure they can't make it should explain their situation to the DNR and the wardens will use discretion.

Shanties were supposed be off Wisconsin-Iowa boundary waters by Feb. 20. They must be off Wisconsin-Minnesota boundary waters by March 1; southern inland waters by March 3; northern inland waters by March 17; and Wisconsin-Michigan boundary waters by March 15.
