fish houses

8 posts in this topic

I know the deadline for fish houses was the 15th of March, but there were several sleeper houses that were still on the lake this past weekend. Just curious for future trips on what the rule is. Is there a difference between rentals and personal houses?

That was sure one of the best sunsets I have seen on Saturday evening. What a great day...

From what I understand, they can be left overnight if they are attended to daily.

No difference. If you are north of the highway 2 boundary your fish house may stay on the lake over night if it is in use. From what I understand the CO for upper red lake considers in use with holes drilled and the heat on. You don't actually have to be in the house.

The new law reads, "attended daily". With the old law you even had to fold up portables at midnight. confused.gif

      Sounds pretty slow, I was up and out of Zipple Bay on Monday and Tuesday in about 26 ft. of water and did OK. Good mix of nice sauger and walleye. I think they closed the road to trucks and just letting atvs out now. Good luck on the river.

      We got ours from springsteel, they had some at the bait store in warroad. Couldn't find ciscos, warroad had smelt though.

      Arrived at Morris pt. Fri. afternoon fished a spot I did well on earlier in the year in 18 ft. Ended up catching 10 walleye of which 8 were under 12 inches. The 2 keepers were 16 inches each. That was between 4 pm and 7 pm Used the snowmobile there was enough slush to keep the slides cool. Sat. morning went deeper because of a report I heard. Caught 1 small walleye moved several times between 29 ft and 20 ft. At 1 pm went back to my spot in 18 ft banged 3 more walleyes 2 15 inchers and a 12 incher. then nothing .Off the lake by 2pm had work to do. Wished I would of started there but that's fishing.Talked to 3 guy's in the cleaning house that road there wheelers to Bridges they had there limits plus 3 huge perch and a few tullies. On a side note coming home today saw numerous boats both coming and going. Time to jump on board and hit the river..
