What to Do??? Old wheel house

Recommended Posts

Kaz

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.

      Was a good winter for sure. Had a blast and learned a few things fishing with you, Chris.

      We drive by the stripping station on Cutfoot weekly & try to keep people up on that too. I think it may be a bit later here, will check it out tomorrow

      Have a couple spots that are 10' open, I live on north side of Pike Bay, large rocks along shoreline helps heat water. Hard to see the ice condition on the Bay as there is a lot of slush on top, once that melts and the warm sun hits the ice it will go quick. Our new Chesapeake pup discovered she lives on a lake yesterday.

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
