What ever happened to the Walleye/Bass license plates?

Recommended Posts

I haven't heard or seen anything about them (the winning plate design was horrible in my opinion). I entered in the artwork contest and was in the top 10. Does anyone know if they just threw out the entry and are going with something else?

They changed it to look more like an eye and it was released. I've yet to see any on the road though. I was gonna get one when my plate was due but they weren't available yet.

When was that? I don't see any information on either the DNR or DPS websites about any Critical Habitat plates other than the loon and the deer.

Last I read, they had decided to change it to a largemouth bass, since they still wanted the fish in the image to be leaping out of the water. Idiots. A walleye laying just above a rubble lake floor would be the perfect background.

AS long as there is anything that looks like a bass on a plate it wont be on any of my vehicles. That plate design was a JOKE!

Thats why you dont see any on the road.

I'm I missing something here? How does a deer qualify as "critical habitat"? They thrive almost anyplace, even in the burbs. Our warmer weather has contributed to the increase all over the state.

Maybe they use the funds collected to shoot the over abundance of deer with the special hunts, which are now common.

I checked with the State at the beginning of the summer and they said that the DNR had not been able to agree on a redesign and the State was waiting to hear from the DNR - did not seem like anyone was in a rush to resolve it one way or another and get it issued.

They should just have another contest and re-vote.

....by the way my design was a walleye grin

I agree with you. There are plenty of incredibly talented artists, designers and illustrators in the state that would gladly jump to the occasion. I know I would if given the chance.

On a related note, I just got my plates renewed. It seems like they are getting more and more ugly as the years go by. The new ones seem like a joke.

    • this piece looks good, i interessting recipe for marinade. I make a meat with basil but want to taste new recipes. And one more think - i may advice you while smoking make a incisions if meat very broad
    • You sure seem to say Grill a lot though! 😏    
    • I have an old MES 30that I put a new element in right before I got my pellet grill. I decided that all of the wet chips is what raised havoc on the last element, so now I run a smoke tube that I burn pellets in. The nice part is that I can now do cold smoking
    • You could but that's just another thing and I like to make bigger batches. Like 50 # plus and I like them hanging. The MES is marginal at best for this and I have the cold smoker attachment on that.   If you just want small runs of stuff that might work. 
    • Can you put a cold smoker box on the side of yours? That would be a good set up for sausage, sticks, etc.  
    • Yep.....😊     Nothing wrong with that. I've just decided I like to cook great BBQ as easily and lazily as possible. 😋
    • I'm still keeping the MES until I make my fridge smoker. The Pellet grill is great for some things but I still like a regular smoker for sausages, sticks etc. 
    • No, I wanted both in one package.     A pellet grill IS a smoker and takes just as much time to cook low and slow as any other smoker.
    • Boat prices are INSANE!!! Even used boats are still rediculous.   As far as buying old used boats and rebuilding them for profit, I think you’ll be hard pressed to break even, let alone make a profit (unless you find one for dirt cheap). An old boat is still an old boat even if it’s been fixed up. 
    • So you really wanted a fancy Grill, not a smoker? Smokers do take up a lot more time but I'm having a lot of fun with my Char grill smoker.
