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."

Thank you for the info.

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....
