Does a Wheelhouse need a Shelter License if not left unattended?

9 posts in this topic

Im sure this has been discussed several times. I have even asked several in the law enforcement community and received several answers..

If you bring a wheelhouse onto the ice. Fish it,sleep in it, etc.. but never leave it unattended.. Does it need to have a shelter tag?

Im aware a tag is only $12.. its not an issue in regards to cost. Just wondering what the facts are.

check page # 55 of the regulations, " 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've wondered this as well. So you don't need one??

Maybe I'm over thinking this but do you read that statement as "unattended AND overnight" or "unattended OR overnight"?

We asked the warden on Red Saurday night the same question because one of the guys always pulled his home, and he said you do not need one unless you leave it unattended....

    • I doubt they make much difference in towing, and the actual research says that they don't, and may be worse.  Do a search for "frontal area" on your favorite search engine for an explanation.   I like the V front for the bathroom area.  It works out to be about the perfect amount of space.   
    • Haven't weighed it.     Catching tons of fish.  Just had an awesome weekend up on Mille Lacs.  Going back up this weekend.  Then it's off to Gull for the big tournament.

    • No, it's bigger than that. That's not chicken feed Foghorn Leghorn.
    • I think it all depends on whether you are looking for at a 14' + 3' V or a true 17' box. On my house I put the door on one side of the V and stove and counter top on the other side. I would have lost a lot of room and at least one hole is it weren't for the V. 
    • What you obviously don't understand is deficits are not moderate.  Economic growth is much slower than the climb of the debt to GDP ratio.   https://fred.stlouisfed.org/series/GFDEGDQ188S   Also, several foreign countries have scaled back purchases of treasuries, increasing yields, and putting upward pressure on interest rates.  If interest rates rise, (as they naturally should) interest on the debt increases, and the effect would be to put even more pressure on trying to maintain a balanced budget.   Here's that pesky $9 trillion figure again - quoted from St. Louis Fed:   If the increase in yields is a result of the pullback, then foreign demand might be crucial in keeping a cap on borrowing costs. This implication is especially important if the U.S. national debt increases by $9 trillion over the next decade as projected.2
