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.

    • PF - Sorry to let you down.  I see you are a slug expert!!!!
    • Sheesh.  I clicked on this from the recent topics page thinking there was a new deer hunting thread......  Get a spray bottle with a salt solution and give them a shower. I think water with Dawn soap might be an option
    • I am flattered fellas, but in rebs defense he did say " goodies" and not "goods" or he would have some explaining to do . between the different s.i.t.e.s.  were on I post no shortage of food shots ,so reb grab that scissors from leech lol. You pick up  a belly yet moon lake?
    • wren chick sat on a chair on the deck for over 2 hours. cute little bugger

    • I think last year was probably the best/first year we should have gone for it at the deadline so no regrets on that one. We got Pommers at the deadline as well but he had some years left and we were able to resign him and overall he has produced for us so no biggy there either. I'm sure we all wish we could take back the Matt Moulson trade back, that was the only bad one that cost us a couple of 2nd rounders and he looked terrible, but again hindsight is always 20/20. The rest were all minor deals that didn't do much either way.    Someone will get moved at some point, we just can't fill out a team and or sign Grandlund & Nino without it, at least not that I can see. Sounds like we had a deal for the Canadians first but their guy was there so they kept the pick, no problem with Fletcher being patient on the trade front, might have to wait until some teams don't fill their needs via free agency before a move happens. 

       
    • anyone else have any issues with ChartInstaller? I last used it on my laptop a month or so ago and it worked fine. I am getting ready to go to North Dakota for a couple days and wanted to download some areas to my card that I hadn't before.   I removed the sd card from my Hummingbird Helix and put it in the laptop. Opened the CharInstaller program that was already installed and was prompted to update. I downloaded the new Chart Installer.exe file and no matter how many times I download it, reboot and retry install etc it will not install. I just get an error "There has been an error. Unknown Error upacking file C:/Program Files (x86)/Chart Installer/nwjc.exe   So while doing the upgrade I lost my desktop icon with no software to update my chart. I understand there is a 1 year subscription but I just got my navionics+ and put it on this card last October.   Any ideas?    
    • Gotta let youse guys carry on wid something!!!

    • IDK, I am kinda liking this show more and more. Its much better than the first season. Yeah, Madison has her quirks, but there are some interesting characters and this whole conflict with the indigenous people now is intriguing.
