pretty sure you don't have to license portables anymore...

And to clarify...

All shelters, which include dark houses, fish houses, and portable

shelters, placed on the ice of Minnesota waters must have either the (

1)

complete name and address, (2)driver’s license number, or (3)the ninedigit

Minnesota DNR number on the license of the owner plainly and

legibly displayed on the outside in letters, and figures at least 2 inches

in height. Dark houses, fish houses, and portable shelters placed on the

ice for shelter while fishing do not need a license unless the house will be left unattended overnight.

I think you understood correct... You don't need a shelter license, however, you technically still need your DL number or address on the outside of your portable!

Honestly, I have never marked my portables and haven't had any issues with it. I have been checked by 10+ CO's over the last few years and not 1 of them mentioned anything about not having my portable marked with the required 2" DL number or address. Now that you don't even need to license your portable, I think it would be even less of a concern.

I agree with Burchoid. Doesn't hurt to have the DL or address on it, but likely won't have a problem if you don't. As long has you don't leave the shack unattended for you will be fine.

BTW - the rule not requiring a protable shack license was NEW last season. Before that, you had to buy a license annually.

    • I won't be able to post the scores for this week until maybe Wed. so if someone else wishes to do so feel free to do it. In fact for the entire summer season I'm going to be pretty much hit and miss. So don't count on me the lake is calling and I have no computer there. My scores will drop like a rock unless luck prevails.

    • So I'm finally getting ready to get the boat wet for the first time this year.   I noticed last night the steering wheel is very tough to turn.  I did done research on some older threads on this site containing to my problem.   One tip I read was to check the big nut next to the motor on the steering arm.  Its printed on the nut -caution**tighten.  Some one said that nut should be loose.  Mine was wrenched tight apparently.  Does the warning on the nut mean , make sure its tight or do not wrench tight???  Btw it's a 05' mercury 115 if that makes any difference.   I will also re lube and clean the components also to see if it makes a difference.   Thanks for any input!!

    • I will admit to this :   there are a couple of crystal clear, cold lakes in Yukon,  within a mile or so of my cabin, where you COULD actually eat and enjoy pike. They did not compare to some nice Grayling but  you COULD eat them. I'm not a fish eater unless it is fresh king salmon or kind crab but quite a few folks would eat the pike. And I will admit to enjoying a chunk of walleye now and then so long as it is slathered in hot sauce and I have had 13 double Makers Marks. But hey!.....you fellas enjoy them!
