house license

Recommended Posts

I just bought a fish house and the DNR said I had to get a trailer license for it. Went down to the license depot and they said if the house is permanently connected to the trailer I did not need a trailer license. What's the scoop?Thanks

if it is just a fish house, you do not need a trailer license for it. if you use it for things other than just fishing, such as an enclosed trailer for wheelers, or for a camper in the summer, then you will need to buy a license for it. as long as it's a fish house and that's all you use it for, no trailer license is needed, just a shelter tag.

A fish house is considered "Special Purpose Equipment" and is in the same league as towed air compressors, log splitters, asphalt patching equipment, etc... All of these do NOT need any liscense to pulled on the roads. I know this to be fact-it is part of my job to perform commercial vehicle inspections and I need to know these things. Just don't load anything such as a four wheeler or snowmobile in it and you are safe. Also, it needs to comply with standard safety features such as wheel wells, tail lights, safety chains, and the like to use on public roadways even if it does not need to be liscensed.

My pleasure. One thing that I forgot to mention is that some equipment may not need lights (such as log splitters) if it does not block the view of the towing vehicles tail lights. Just make sure you have red reflectors (2"x4") at the rear of the towed unit.

    • Dude, do you know how to use the emoticons?  It's always good to use one of these when making a Joke!  🙂 😀 😅 😂  😉
    • All deer in SE MN need to be wiped out.  90% herd reduction isn't going to stop the disease.  It is wreckless and stupid to do any less.  The whole state herd is going to go in the toilet if the SE guys don't get on the triggers and get their situation under control.  This talk of us vs the deer farms is a stupid smokescreen designed to try to take the focus off private land owners that don't want to cooperate with the mitigation plan.       Anything less will set the stage for CWD to roll hard to the north and get into the big woods where there will be zero chance of ever finding every deer.   
    • Gettin er done.    I have to take the "T" that the transducer pipe goes through to work so I can open the ID so the pipe can slide freely. 
    • I have a couple Garmin units for my boat. I'm going to also use one for ice fishing. Got it powered up and started playing with the colors schemes I'd like to use. The only one I like so far is with a blue background. But what I found that I like better is the black background the humminbird uses. Maybe Garmin could do an update to add a black mode. Lol. 
    • How do you keep those solid whole covers from freezing over the hole?
    • The ant moat idea seems interesting.  Go to a second had store or a Goodwill type of place and see if you can find a Bundt pan.  Use that and see how things work out.  
    • Could you be a little more specific on this cocktail timing deal? Size matters! 😏  
    • I have been doing whole prime rib on a weber grill since I was 20 years old and they cost 2.99 lb at the long ago defunct Country Club Market in St. Paul. I put the coals on each side for indirect heat and add salt and pepper and garlic. For the garlic I put the fat side up and take a knife and put holes into the fat down to meat. In each hole I put a garlic clove. I don't add any pellets or wood chips for smoke. I just want to taste that beef cooked in owns fat with a few spices but go ahead and add some smoke to it if that is what you want.
    • The storm last weekend  has moved the birds into the heavy duty winter cover. We had pretty good hunting in the cattails the last couple of days. Perfect weather helped.
    • In my humblest of opinions the simpler the better for prime rib.   Take it out of the refrigerator, salt (kosher) the entire piece and let stand until it's at room temp. Stick it into your smoker/oven at 450-500 degrees until crusted (about 1 cocktail). Lower heat to 325. Have a least 3 cocktails before poking it with a thermometer. Remove once internal temp is 120. Let rest for at least 1 more cocktail Cut and serve with horseradish.
