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?

      Yup!  I can see how that would be annoying!    Welcome to Fishing Minnesota though.  Glad to see your posts.

      Got out on Saturday along with my brother who went out in his boat. So much mud that we went our separate ways searching for better water. With 3 in his boat he caught 5 Coho and 5 Lake Trout. I found a nice spot and went 2/5 before the wind messed up the spot. Sunday morning went out with my brother to the same spot and had a double before the third line was out. Ended up going 7/11 before a storm with red in it chased us off the lake. Loonasea was correct on the nice size of the Coho's right now. All fish were caught with stick baits on top.

      Soooo many spots to hit, your going to love the yak, JC!   And Royce is right about an anchor. This would be my first investment.

      My unit is not a link unit. I thought they worked the bugs out of these units. 19 years ago they recalled all of these when almost all of them failed. Fingers crossed I guess.

             Hi guys - went out on Blue lake yesterday .... water temps around 61 -62 on the surface.    Tried for some walleye with ripple shads in the weeds with no success, did manage a nice Bass.  we switched to crappies and managed keeping a nice meal.  Let a nice monster Blue Gill go (9.75") and kept some nice Sunnies for the frying pan.   Pan fish were pretty active if you hit the right spots.  A lot of people out there and the access was not a place to be in a hurry!!   We had to work for the crappies and the ones we caught were 9"-10" crappies full of eggs.  I would guess that although the ice was out early, many of the species are now late and delayed on the spawn.   if this weather don't warm up quick, i think the bass will drop their eggs and it won't be a good year for bass spawn this year.    Talked to some anglers out their bass fishing and they thought it was very slow and were puzzled.   Cret

      I apologize for my word choice. I'm from chisholm n most of my camping trips growing up were decided after work on Friday n we can't do that now. The only positives that have come from the reservation system is ppl who have never been 2 the park (5%) now don't have 2 worry about a spot n the fishing guides don't have 2 worry about finding a place 4 shore lunch.

      Sorry I had to edit your title.  I've been hearing some people are upset about the change.  But I also heard there were some positives about it too.  I can't say anything one way or the other since I'm not affected.

        It does have lakers but I think they closed it for harvest.  I thought I read it was due to those lakers being a different strain and getting fished down a little too much.   That laker Rob caught was a hawg!  Too bad he got it taken away.

      The fact that ppl have to reserve a campsite is absolute BS. The only thing the park accomplished by making ppl reserve campsites is lowering the amount of ppl who visit the park.
