Anglers reminded to remove ice shanties

Ice fisherman take note: shanties must be removed from the ice before the ice weakens.  Also, the name and address of the owner must be on the ice shanty, according to Vermont state law. The shanty must be removed before the ice becomes unsafe and loses its ability to support the shanty or before the last Sunday in March — March 26 this year. All contents, debris, wood, and supports must also be removed so they do not become a hazard to navigation in the spring. The fine for leaving ice fishing shanties on the ice can be $1,000, and shanties may not be left at state fishing access areas.
