Ice Shanties Must Be Removed from Ice

Vermont state law requires that ice fishing shanties must be removed from the ice no later than Sunday, March 27th.

The same Vermont law requiring the name and address of the owner be on an ice shanty also requires that the shanty be removed before the ice becomes unsafe or loses its ability to support the shanty out of the water, or before the last Sunday in March (the 27th this year), whichever comes first.

The fine for leaving your ice fishing shanty on the ice can be up to $1,000, and shanties may not be left at state fishing access areas.
