Due to heavy ice and snow, Minnesota officials allow unlimited fishing in 11 Minnesota lakes. Jeffrey DeMars reports.

(KARE) The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources is allowing "unlimited" fishing on Pelican Lake near Albertville, Minnesota.

It is one of 11 lakes across the state where officials have liberalized the rules.

"The combination of the snow, the thick ice and the plants decomposing under water, is just chewing up the oxygen," explained Joe Stewig, Minn. Dept. of Natural Resources.
