Portable fish house information

Recommended Posts

What information is needed on a portable fish house? Name and city plus license. Name and address plus license. Or does the license all you need on it with out name? I always get conflicting reports from different dnr people. Please help!

Hello Duckman8,
Here is a quote from the DNR Fishing Regs:
"All shelters, which include dark houses, fish houses, and portable
shelters, placed on the ice of Minnesota waters must have the
complete name and complete address or driver’s license number of the
owner plainly and legibly displayed on the outside in letters and
figures at least 2 inches in height."

I use only my driver's lic.#,I called the dnr before I did it to make sure. It wouldn't make much difference on a real desolate lake, but when there are some homes nearby people don,t know if someone is watching their fishhouse from home or if the owner is from 40 mi. away. In the past we,ve had problems with breaking in and theft or just out+out distruction of property to houes on area lakes--it always seems that the out of towners get it 90% of the time. but thats just my personal opinion.good luck on the ice to all.

I also just have my driver license #. I just e-mailed the DNR. Will post their response.

my question: "If I want to use my driver's license # on my ice shelter, verses my name and address, do I also need my namne?"

response from "kevin Kyle" [email protected]dnr.state.mn.us
"NO you don't. One of the following, name and address, or drivers license number or mndnr number. Any one of these will work. Kevin"

    • 501A .Going earlier than my normal B season this year. 
    • 504A for me. Taking a newbie out this year if he was drawn. Need this weather to turn around pretty quick.
    • I also picked up a couple extra trailer tilt pins in case someone walks off with mine again. I would have taken my enclosed trailer but my check engine light is on in my Suburban to and it comes up knock sensor. And they don't recommend driving it with bad knock sensor or could damage engine. Need a warmer day to tackle that as it involves removing the intake to get at the darn thing. Hope my luck improves
    • Seems like one could use chuck to make corned beef, but don't see much about it on the net...  Might be a fun experiment.
    • Dropped it off at dealer today and might be a week to get it back. Not sure you have relays with manual reverse but if anyone is looking for spares they are $5 at O Rielly parts and they have more expensive ones to but look just like the $5 ones. I bought 4 of them for spares. Im also going to ask mechanic when I pick it up if there is a way to get it out of reverse manually so if it ever happens out in the middle of the woods. 
    • corned beef is right up there but we are now getting into the season where the sales will start!!  love the ruebens too!!!  but it is one thing I never made from scratch, just store bought and cooked...  go for it bobber!!! 
    • Got drawn for the MN B season! Hope the weather cooperates.
    • Did you ever end up making corned beef Thunderlund? or anyone?The Mrs went up to cub yesterday so I had her pick up some c beef from the deli for Ruebens, holy moly they dont give that stuff away!!  I see most recipes call for brisket ( thinking maybe end up kind of stringy) but I do have several chuck roasts,  I'm thinking brining one and give it a whirl..If so how'd it turn out?
    • I use a lighter duty set on the front because they fit tighter and have better clearance. On the back I use  more aggressive v-bars. Sometimes one set isn’t enough and once I got stuck with both sets on. I’m pretty new to this too but for the most part they’ve worked  well for me.
