fishhouse removal

10 posts in this topic

got a question. it looks like the wording was changed a little as far as using shelters after removal deadline. the law states that portables may be used my question is what qualifys as a portable.does a house on wheels meet that standard.i assume it does. anyone know for sure.

As far as I have understood it in the past was you could use any house you wanted, you just could not leave it unattended and over-night.

Be sure to get a new shelter license after Feb 28th though.

GRABS thats the way i have understood it also but i dont remember the word portable being used before. all houses could fall under that category i guess because they all can be moved.anybody have a for sure answer on this matter.

The way the law works is that as long as the house is off every night by midnight you can use it. So you don't have to use a actual portable. If you want to bring a 8X8 without wheels that is fine as long as it is off by midnight. Actually if you are fishing in the house after midnight you can get away with leaving it on the ice I believe as long as the house is occupied.

The DNR's response to a couple of email questions I asked last week.

Question, can I stay overnight in my trailerable fish house ON the lake,
whether fishing or not, after March 15? It would be occupied at all times.

Hello Dave, no you cannot. A shelter must be off the ice by midnight.
Sorry jim

So, I can't fish past midnight in a trailerable shelter either?
Portable ok after midnight? Sorry, just trying to understand the regulation.

Dave, after midnight no type of shelter is allowed. Portable are allowed from a hour before sunrise to midnight. Thanks again jim

So does this mean that you have to take it off at midnight, but then you can put it right back on, as long as it is off of the lake for some period of time?? Seems like another of those so called "gray" areas that the regualtions are full of.

Portable can be on the lake from one hour before sunrise to midnight. So 6 am to midnight, and not between midnight and 6.

    • I have two decoy jig sticks that just slip in between the rods and 'canvas' on the roof.  A fish can pull some line off it hits hard.  A Velcro loop can be added for additional security.   There are more custom ways of doing it but that works for me.

    • I oppose all that camera stuff, with auto ticketing.   How will the camera tell if there is water in my live well?  Or in my minnow bucket?  Will it focus on the plug as I drive into the parking lot?     I also oppose the red light cameras and speed cameras.  What's next?  Drones following us around?
