Ice Shanty Removal Highlights End-of-March Deadlines

The last day of March brings an official end to some winter activities and regulations.

 Ice fishing shanties must be removed from Upper Peninsula lakes by midnight. 

Shanties can be returned to the ice on a daily basis as long as conditions permit, but must be removed at the end of each day.

Shanty owners whose structures fall through the ice are subject to penalties of up to 30 days in jail, fines of up to $500, or both. If a shanty is removed by a government agency, a court can require the owner to reimburse that agency for as much as three times the cost of removal.

Fishing licenses for the year 2022 also expire today.

Some cities in the Upper Peninsula, including Marquette, Escanaba and Iron Mountain, will end their winter overnight curbside parking bans tonight. 

Most municipalities in the Copper Country, though, will continue their overnight street parking bans through the end of April.
