Anglers have just one more day to get their fish houses off lakes in central and southern Minnesota.

Permanent shelters need to be off the ice by the end of day Monday.

The Minnesota DNR says if the fish houses aren't removed by the deadline, owners will be cited and the shelters may be confiscated or destroyed by a conservation officer.

Wade Bren removed his fish house off of Bald Eagle Lake in White Bear Township on Sunday. 

"It's mostly for safety," Bren said. "They want them off so that people don't leave them out here and abandoned them."

The deadline to remove fish houses for the northern part of the state is March 16th.
