Yes that is correct. And if you take a "permanent" on the ice and dont leave it unattended for say a weekend, it also does not need one as i understand it. Any house left unattended needs a license.

Straight out of the DNR rulebook=Question: A group of (resident or nonresident) anglers pulls a fish house on the ice for a weekend of ice fishing. The fish house is designed with a wheel system that allows for easy access and removal from the lake. The anglers stay in the house and never leave it unoccupied during the course of the weekend. Does the fish house require a license?

Answer: No. A fish house license is not required as long as the fish house is attended. This includes daylight, as well as nighttime use.

That might help. Real nice change!

I'm happy to hear of the change, I only fish out of a portable, unless I use my buddies perm house. I never understood why a portable would ever have to be licenesed!

Make sure that you still have your information on your shack though. (DL #, DNR #, etc.)

I was just looking through the DNR fishing regs on line and still see the shelter tag as a requirment on page 60. But there is a statement that these regs apply "unless otherwise noted elsewhere in this booklet". Other than the question section is this change listed anywhere else? I got a warning ticket last year because I didn't have my shelter tag displayed properly and want to avoid that this year.

There is a news release on their site about the rule change that the government changed this year, so thats why it is not printed in the 2007 rule book.

This sounds great, I won't be required to purchase a non-resident license for my ice shelter. Just want to clarify; jigger-matt seez the owner of the ice house must have the owners name and DNR# displayed.

Yes, you'll need some digits displayed. It is explained in the link attached to the bottom of page 1 of this post.

It's about time something costs LESS. I remember when I first got started ice fishing I took a 4x8 sheet of plywood, cut it in 1/2 & hinged it for a wind break. DNR came out checked my fishing license & told me I needed one for my shelter confused.gifshocked.gifconfused.gif I thought he was kidding, but he wasn't. Well, things changed for the better. L2f

self built house are classifeid as perminate stationary house yes needs to be licenced. the no tag deal is very touchy with many dnr personal. i asked about home made shelters they told me yes needs a tag, not store bought portables. that wasnt clairifed in the books at all. check with ur local dnr C/O of ur counties u live in they vary.

So if I go and buy a portable, I need to have a DNR# on it? I am getting confused about "you don't have to have a license on a portable, but you do need to have a DNR #"? What do I need to register my portable, or do I need to do anything to register it?

Your DNR# can be found on your fishing license.

      Drifter, I hope you are right about having more open water than ice.  Was looking more closely at the average ice out dates maintained by the DNR. The avg dates for the lakes that dot the southern most part of the state are approximately one month ahead of the lakes that dot the northern part of the state like Burnt, Kab, and Vermilion.  As of this morning, none of those lakes in the southern part of the state are ice out.  Are we still a month away from open water on V then?  God I hope not, but the math isn’t helping me feel confident.

      I heard there is open water in the oak narrows by Timbuktu marina!!

      "Kelly looks like you need an extension for your dock."   But I don't think I have to worry about any boats hitting it.    It should be an interesting Opener.

      A truck broke through Birch Lake the other day in like 20fow, an ATV broke through Prairie Lake and a man lost his life. The ice is deteriorating RAPIDLY. There will be some ice chunks, but I firmly believe there will be more open water than ice by May 12.  Temps up here are forecasted near 70 for a few days next week.
