Shelter Permits?

12 posts in this topic

I heard from a Cabela's employee that we don't need shelter permits on portable houses this year is that true?

Correct. As long as you don't leave them out overnight, you do not need them.

As far as a definition, of leaving a shelter out unattended at night, what does this constitute? We usually stay in a sleeper but bring the portable for mobility and when the need arises as an outhouse. The fish house will usually be in the back of my truck or folded up and covered at night but will technically still be on the ice.

Milkdud,

You're information is only partially true- to not pay for the shelter permit, you'll need to send $100 and a case of beer to me. That way, you'll be good to go if a CO stops you! tongue.gifwink.gifgrin.gif

so, what's good enough for "I.D."?

name & zip code?

i unfolded my portable last night in the garage just to see if the mice got into it & it looks like I've lucked out, ni new mice holes. But if there is a certain letter size or certain info that must be displayed in a certain way, I'd like to get that taken care of.

      as of 12/5 on the West end many small bays were wide open. Water levels are very high in the local rivers, swamps and I am guessing the lake. It is information that I received from a relative last night.   Be safe   Steve

      No never ever caught a walleye early on the West end. Go east to catch early walleye   We have not had a good slip bobber early season walleye bite in many years. Used to be able to catch them from the docks and rock points every spring. Easy fun fishing. Now we work hard for the fish we catch. West end.   Largemouth bass, sunfish, and bullheads have been caught very regularly on slip bobbers and leeches the last 15 years. I bet they also eat walleye fry. Could possibly be a part of the missing young of the year fish in the recent fall nettings. I did not hear how fall 2016 shook out.

      Nice catch Mitch.  Those are some well fed Northerns.

      We ended up going through Tom Wilson. Pretty good price for a weekend. Now we just need ice.   http://www.leechlakeicefishing.com/fishhouse.html
