The first of a number of deadlines for ice anglers to remove ice fishing shelters from inland and boundary waters is this week. All ice fishing shelters must be removed from Wisconsin-Iowa boundary waters by Friday, Feb. 20. This earlier date, affecting the Mississippi River south of the Minnesota-Iowa border, is set to correspond with Iowa regulations.

The deadlines for the other two boundary waters are March 1 for Wisconsin-Minnesota boundary waters and March 15 for Wisconsin-Michigan boundary waters.

For inland Wisconsin waters, ice fishing shelters must be removed daily and when not occupied after the following dates:

Sunday, March 8 for waters south of Highway 64 (First Sunday following March 1).

Sunday, March 15 for waters north of Highway 64, along with Lake Michigan, Superior and the Bay of Green Bay (First Sunday following March 12).
