Thats too soon isn't it? We are making really good ice right now...I think the date should be week by week after Feb 28th.

Why do they set a date? there is no date you can start putting them out. You should be able to have them out as long as there is ice.

It's the DNR's attempt to keep lakes free of busted up fish house parts and pickups. It works well.

You can still have a house on the lake after the 28th, you just can't leave it overnight. Don't forget to get a new shelter tag, also.

Can you pull your permanent house out after the 28th regulations state PORTABLES may be used one hour before sunrise to one hour after sunset

Actually, you can have your house out on the lake until midnight.

This is from the 2006-07 regs.

Note: After the date when ice or fish houses or shelters must be

removed, portable shelters may be placed on the ice and used from one

hour before sunrise to midnight, but only if there is an open fishing season

on the lake.

I didn't realize before that there was a time limit. I just thought you couldn't leave them unattended so as long as you were using it at the time, it was okay to have it on the lake. Good to get enlightened.

    • Minnesota Archery again. D season in Wisconsin. Hopefully taking my dad out if possible, he's 95 and not in great shape right now. Also have a women's mentored hunt later in May.  Not certain yet, but hoping to put a Nebraska hunt together.  Seeing WAY more than expected this fall what with the cold wet spring we had.
    • We were up fishing from last Thursday afternoon through Saturday evening. Fishing was great, lots of nice walleyes with a couple of fat 28" fish as the biggest and plenty of saugers. Fish bit all day with our best bite coming each day from about 2-315. Fish were somewhat sluggish from 11-1230 and had to be coaxed into biting or didn't bite at all but after 1230 most everything we marked bit. We were set up in 23-24', color didn't seem to matter although we tend to use gold more than most other colors on our spoons and we basically had every color tied on our set lines and they bit them all. There was about 3-4" of snow on the lake Thursday when we got there but it was a packed 1-2" by the time we left Saturday night. Some areas of rough ice but other areas are nice and smooth, generally about 14-16" of ice where we fished. Can't wait to get back up, good luck if you are going out!
