Does my portable need my license number on it?

31 posts in this topic

Now that we don't need to license portables does my driver license number need to be displayed? I just got a new number this summer, so if I don't need to, I won't change it and just take it off.

Thanks

You still have to display your DL# or your DNR# at minimum.

I will only put out my DNR#. That is because I am always worried about identity theft. Never know who is looking at your fish house.

Use your DNR#. It doesn't change and it's shorter.

You still need to license your portable if you leave it unattended between midnight and 1 hour before sunrise.

Hey, thanks for the input! I'll put my DNR# on then and remove my old drivers license number.

What is the best way to display your number. I've seen some clams that have it attached some how, but mine does not have that.

Leaving it unattended and a thief will show you what makes a portable a portable wink

Use your vacuum seal bags and make a clear bag with a piece of cardboard and your number on it. I used velcro to attach the sealed bag to the house. Works great.

Black Sharpie will work on most portables, Silver Sharpie on the black ones.

I'll look for the attachable holder next time I am at the stores. I am big on buying and selling used items, so I would not want to sharpie on the canvas directly.

JigginisLife,

You DO need your DNR# or drivers licence# on your portable. I was with someone who got a ticket for not having any of the required ID info on his portable. He was sitting in it at the time.

These are the rules from the 2008 Minnesota State Statutes, Chapter 97, Section 355, Subdivisions 1 and 2. Keep in mind that the definition of "fish houses" has been changed to include all houses whether on skids, wheels, sled or other shelter used for angling.

97C.355 SHELTERS ON ICE; DARK HOUSES AND FISH HOUSES.

Subdivision 1.Identification required.

All shelters on the ice of state waters, including dark houses and fish houses, must have: (1) the owner's name and address, (2) the owner's driver's license number, or (3) the "MDNR#" license identification number issued to the owner legibly displayed on the exterior with characters at least two inches high.

Subd. 2.License required.

A person may not leave a dark house or fish house unattended on the ice at any time between midnight and one hour before sunrise unless the house is licensed and has a license tag attached to the exterior in a readily visible location, except as provided in this subdivision. The commissioner must issue a tag with a dark house or fish house license, marked with a number to correspond with the license and the year of issue. A dark house or fish house license is not required of a resident on boundary waters where the adjacent state does not charge a fee for the same activity.

    • arby's fries frozen?  at supermarket?  have to look for them...
    • Oh, just like the Rompers you are wearing around town then.
    • Made some frozen Arby's fries tonight and wow they were great. I would be sold just on the fries alone in this thing.   11mins cooked frozen, better and quicker than the drive thru lol
    • Actually the guy at ace was pretty close. These little guys are for framing steel studs before sheetrocking,  but yes they also could be for sheet metal work even though they are black . But your right hawg sharp and go in fast. 
    • What  a sweet find !!   Even better that you had a camera handy !!
    • Great trade and as of last year I know I wasn't ready to part with Lavine and his potential but that all changed when he went down with the injury.  I hope Lavine becomes a stud for Chicago in a few years but our time to win is now with this addition!!  Great move giving up hope for a top 15 player in the league that plays D is brilliant with the young studs we still have on roster.  Now all we need to do is add another player or 2 in free agency to strengthen our bench and we will be looking good.  Excited for the free agency to start!!! Playoffs here we come!!!!!! GO WOLVES!!!!!!!!!!!
    • http://minnesota.cbslocal.com/2017/06/22/mall-of-america-slips/   Classic case of doctors juicing up a medical claim with a series of failed therapies, creating a life long patient and a corporation with deep pockets to bill for those services.  Think not?  Dont be so naive.  Nobody wanted to fix her, they just wanted to keep billing, sad deal that happens all too often.          
    • That Drouin contract at 5.5 is kind of bad for us right now. Nino is far more proven than him and Granlund has had the beast season out of the 3 of them. Hard to see anything under 5 for each of them. 
    • Looks like the Wild moved Schroeder for....another Schroeder.  Maybe the new guy will be more consistent.   I see Evander Kane is on the trade market.  On the expensive side, but if the Wild decide to move Scandella instead of Dumba, that would free up more money.  A guy capable of scoring 30+ goals with some size would be sweet.     I am thinking Granlund and Nino each sign for in between 4-5$ mil each.  Hopefully less and hopefully Pominville will restructure a little.  Doesn't leave a ton of cap space for free agents or other guys.     Lots of moving parts in Chicago.  They seem to be moving a lot of parts around to try to work with their cap situation.
