Important info. for Minnesota ice fisherman

8 posts in this topic

Totally forgot about this until I read it in the paper this morning. Minnesota legislature approved a bill late last year that states that if you are ice fishing in a shelter and take the shelter with you when you are done for the day (or evening) you are no longer required to license that shelter. Only shelters that are left on the ice when you leave are required to be licensed. You still have to identify your shelter regardless with your name and address or your drivers license number. The law pertains to all shelters. NICE grin.gif BC

Yeah, I bought mine two weeks back for my flipover shelter. Didn't know about the rule change. Spent $12.50 on something that's just gonna sit in my wallet.

Guess that's my gift to the DNR. crazy.gif

Don't feel to badly St., I think there are a few of us that fished late last year that needed shack tags so we have the one we bought late last year that is good for this season as well. Guess I'll just have to drag the permenant shack out on the lake this year and put that tag to good use. Good luck out there.

I did the same thing. I was fishing for Lake Trout last March using my portables and bought the shelter lisc. I guess I had to at the time so... whatever. Small price to pay for my time on the ice.

      I was up there about ten days ago and the snow and lake ice were melting fast.
      The forecast for the next week looks good for making ice.

      Dean iced over today.  Schmidt has ice about 30 yards out then open water. Been a few years now, Pelican may be snappin' again.

      This year started out like last year but starting tonight the temps are nothing like last year. There will probably be vehicles by the 26th. I'm still feeling good about sleds on the 17th.

      Cheapest I've found is Proctor Builders.

      Last year it was Dec. 26th before they opened the road up out of Morris pt. for 4 wheelers. Thinking its looking like that again this year. Hope I can hold out. Between the ice show and this website getting very fired up.
