New Rule for Portable Spearhouses!!

8 posts in this topic

What do you all think of the new the rule the DNR places for not having to licence your portable fishhouse as a darkhouse anymore.

The new rule stats that is you take your house off the lake everynight, you dont have to get a licence. Gota love that huh.

Still have to get your spearing licence, just dont have to get one for the house.

Well we usually leave our spearhouses out on the lake for the weekend. So I'll continue to buy the shelter license

from what I'm hearing, we used to be able to leave any house on the lake over night, with no tag. With the new law we will have have a licence on any house left out over night. Before we could switch tags from house to house as long as we were not in them. they still get more money!! Oh well!!

Ya the new rule is that if you are keeping a house on the lake overnight, it has to be licenced. If not keeped overnight, you dont have to licence it.

Under the old rules any fishhouse on the ice occupied or not had to have a license. The new rules will help the guys that don't leave their house on the ice overnight (Clams and Otters mostly). You can still switch your license as always between 2 houses as long as both aren't left on the ice overnight.

I think its a good ideal. There was no reason to licence them if you are aways taking them off the ice!

thats true bro. there is no reason that would should have to do it. But on the other hand, i understand where they are coming from when they are saying that a house should be licenced. They need there money as well.

o.k...so let me get this straight...

I no longer need to purchase a fish house license if I pull the darn thing off each night?

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!

      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.

      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
