(KNSI) - A reminder to anglers that ice fishing is not allowed on St. Cloud's Lake George.

A couple found that out Monday afternoon when they drilled four holes in the ice and put up a portable fish house.

A police officer responded and told the couple that, per city ordinance, there's no ice fishing on Lake George.

No ticket was issued.

The couple was disappointed and said that some "no ice fishing" signs should be placed around the lake.

Since the lake is used for ice skating the city doesn't want a bunch of holes that could trip up skaters.

The holes are marked by orange cones.
