Here is the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR) "Question of the Week."
Question: Do I need a license to ice fish?
Answer: All residents and nonresidents who are 16 years of age and older, need an angling license to fish Minnesota waters. If you are fishing on designated trout waters, Lake Superior, or are in possession of trout on waters that are not designated trout waters, you need to be in possession of a trout stamp as well as a valid angling license.
