What to Do??? Old wheel house

7 posts in this topic

Well now that MDOT decided to change the status of a wheel house and require a registration, what about us who have had a Wheel House for more than 10 years and even though it's a commerically built, have no VIN number on it?? Are we now required to get a licence plate too? I liked the old rules where it was a vehicle of husbandry and you could use it anytime without restrictions.. To keep legal, how do I now procced??? \:\) Kaz

I would call or stop in to one of the state license bureaus and talk to them. Im sure they have a way for you to get legal. I built a utility trailer a few years ago and they were able to license it after answering a couple of questions about the size and construction. I hope that helps.

Kaz: I believe as stated, answer a couple of questions and they will assign a VIN number and a registration number. Also once they are licensed for the road they now are an endorsement to the auto policy for insurance purposes, if you wish to insure it. There is no requirment to do so. The liability from the towing vehicle will cover any damage to another person or property if it were to come loose and pass you on the roadway. Endoresring it covers damage to the unit. If its a skid house then it falls under contents coverage on your homeowners policy. Just a couple of more items to cause confusion....LOL. Bill

Boy it sure is nice here today! a very raw 7 degrees and a brisk wind to make it even more enjoyable if you have to go outside for any reason. I cant wait to get my boat out of storage and slide it into the water. Dont get me wrong I love ice fishing, I just have had enough cold for this winter.

      I don't know what's wrong yet but I'm guessing it's not good. More pictures and drs in coming weeks.

      Heck of a float today!  I released 22 and biggest was just over 19.  Lotta nice sized fish.  My friend was out for the first time on the river and just 2nd time in a yak and he had a ball. Ended up with 8 after he started using my stick baits and got the hang of it.  First time up on that stretch this year.

      The walleye bite on the East end of Vermilion has been very good since the opener. Some days can be a little challenging but we have managed to limit out every day out since the opener! Not to often that that has happened! The average keeper size has been very consistent also. 14" to 16" fish most days out. Getting a few slot fish also. 26" is our biggest so far but quite a few 20" to 23" walleyes too. Lindy rigs with a glow bead and pike suckers has been my only presentation since the opener. Fish are being caught in 14' to 33' depths. Cliff

      Herky Jr. picked up a couple nice white bass, one trolling and one jigging. We turned them into delicious fish tacos!

        Yah!  The foldable ones you can.    Or, if you don't get a roof carrier you could just leave one hanging out an open window or the hatch like you're making a lumber run.

      They are BITING - bugs that is - har!   Bass have been very good some days and slooooow on others. Bugs have been awful last few trips. But the dragonflies have hatched out so they will be putting the gobble on the black flies and mosquitoes so things should improve.   Walleyes have finally showed up on the bank. Bass have been there awhile now. Went to Pelican one day and got some largemouths. The special regs there have really helped the bass fishing. Crappie are in spawning colors at several different lakes I have sampled this last week. Everything pretty much shallow but did get some walleyes in 15 FOW,
