Dumb question. I just bought my first portable (fishtrap guide) and was wondering what the best way to label it is?

I really don't want to right directly on it, what have you guys done?

wright right on it! big deal, it's your's, if you sell it they can be covered, or removed with grafiti remover. I bought a used one with numbers on it. I painted over the numbers with white latex paint, let it dry and wrote over the paint with perm black marker, it's been good for 3 years.

I feel that with the numbers directly on the portable, there is no way i can loose them. Brent

Clam makes a deal that you rivit on the canvas with a clear outside that you can slide you id into. It works real good, I have it on both of my fish traps!

I know that alot of them are being made with that slot of clear plastic in them so you can place it on a piece of cardboard or wood and slide it in. Like "Banger" said if not I would write it right on the Canvas because then if it is stolen or misplaced you can identify it much easier!

Thanks for the tips, guys!!

I think my guide has the clear sleave, so I will try that first. If it tends to be a pain, then I'll just write on the dang thing!!!

I didn't think you needed a tag this year if you don't leave the house out overnight?? Is that not correct?

You are correct, if you don't leave your house out overnight, you don't need a license. HOWEVER, you still need to have identification on your house. Identification includes, Name and Address, Driver's license number, or DNR number. ID must be clearly visible with letters at least 2 inches high.

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff

      Ice forming in the dogs water dish right now! Forcast still looks good starting Tuesday. I predict the first truck thru the ice on Buffalo will be Dec 23!
