ROCHESTER, Minn. - Starting this winter, anglers using wheelhouse or dark-house shelter need to purchase a license to have a spot on the ice. 

The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources said previously, wheeled fish houses were considered portable and didn't need a license. 

An annual resident shelter license is $16. 

The license tag must be placed on the outside of the shelter.
