A good amount of snowfall is causing a good amount of trouble for area anglers.

Snow pack and drifts on the lakes are making for a tough time hauling fish houses off lakes, and snow or not, time is ticking.


The Minnesota DNR requires houses be removed by certain dates according to where they are located. Houses south of Highway 10, including Detroit Lake, need to be off by midnight this Monday. Those north of Highway 10, including lakes like Floyd, have until March 18.
