The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources issued a statement on Facebook last week to remind people to pack their trash out when ice fishing. 

The statement read: 

"Waste not, want not. Ice fishing is a great Minnesota winter pastime. #BeGoodNatured and take care of our lakes, fish and wildlife and abundant natural resources by adding an all-waste receptacle and colored trash bags to your ice fishing equipment list. No one wants to find fish entrails, trash or human and pet waste on the ice when they head out to enjoy quality time fishing our beautiful lakes."

The DNR included a photo of trash that was discovered on a lake.
