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.

      Got out yesterday. Plenty of ice, not too much snow. Got a few gills and a few crappies. Light bite. Not exactly fast and furious, but fun to be out. Heading back today.

      I think it will be alright but i would be lying if i said i wasnt thinking what to do myself.

      Yes the pressure has decreased the walleye population. My question is this....what is the target walleye population goal? I do believe there may have been an abundance of fish a few years back that would not be healthy for the lake either. Are we at the "proper fish level" now and this will be the typical pattern moving forward or where are things at? Only lake surveys and biologists can tell that story. You still see some reports of excellent fishing but I have heard a lot more poor reports this season than prior years but there are some environmental differences also....(snow levels, pressure ridges, cracks).   I don't make the trip to red to be able to fill my freezer.....I make the trip for my kids to have action and make memories. This last trip was a slow one but we had a beautiful 36" pike come visit and made some great memories as it tangled all the lines for my wife and daughters. I was called back to the house to assist as I was off setting up the portable for our next searching spot. Made it just in time to pull it out of the hole for her! Lots of smiles and some wide eyes from my youngest daughter! Can you provide a date for this photo? Nice shot for sure, thanks for sharing!

      I am having the same luck as you Big A. I figure that the fish gods are angry at me.
