new boat trailer license


Recommended Posts

just a reminder to all of you that have had to renew your boat trailer license; the new one is a stick on tag that goes on the trailer tongue; and make sure you remove any old license plates on trailer and carry the registion card in cab along with ins card

I didn't realize that you are supposed to take your plates off... Are you sure on that?

Captn, yes, that was my reaction as well. I had to ask twice but that's what they told me to do at the license service center in Maple Grove.

Registration Card? Since when do you have to have a registration card for your trailer along with you? I don't even think I have a registration card for my trailer...and I sure as heck wouldn't have it in my vehicle.{That would be about as smart as keeping your title in your vehicle's cubby hole!}

Just got mine today. Definitely lose the old plates.

Your trailer registration and trailer title are two entirely different things and, yes, everyone is right...take the old plates off, as instructed.

Seems kind of wacky to me, but it is what the state wants you to do.

I think I'll just keep living in Fargo and let you crazy Minnesotans deal with your regulations while I drive my boat around without a trailer license (not required in ND...)

Catcher-- we dont claim to know everything, we were just hoping to bring this to someones attention, and according to the replys ,it has helped;
just my guess, but it says registration/cab card with your new paid for trailor license, it proves; you own it, make, model, v ID #, its kind of like if they pull you over and ask for ins card for your truck, registration ,etc.; it has nothing to do with titles; you may want to get better advise then us and advise the rest of us, tks for the question--we carry all our cab cards and insurance cards

Consultant,

I think you've got the right angle on this whole thing....next thing you know we'll have to register each rod/reel combo and will only be able to use lures from an approved list.

I think they went to the sticker so people don't use one plate for multiple trailers.

      On the south end... Ice roads and ice trails are extending out on Lake of the Woods looking to connect with schools of walleyes and saugers.  Some ice roads are out as far as 24 miles.   The subzero cold snap is good for extending ice into March, but it was tough on the bite.  Once the weather started warming up, so did the bite.   Most anglers report picking through numbers of small fish to catch eaters, slot fish and some true trophy fish over 28 inches. Depths vary depending upon outfitter based on where they are fishing, but as a rule, 32-36 feet has been the norm.  The morning / evening bite for walleyes in shallow water,16 - 19 feet, has been active for some. Jigging a lipless crankbait with vibration and rattles has been working well to catch some fish and also draws other fish into the area you are fishing.  Some fish in more of a neutral mood will slide over and take interest in your deadstick, a live minnow just off of the bottom. As a rule, glow and bright colors during cloudy days, the golds and silvers during sunny days.   A mixed bag for many being reported, including walleyes, saugers, jumbo perch, eelpout (burbot), pike, tullibees and even a few sturgeon and crappies.   On the Rainy River...   The golden hour (beginning and end of the day) continues to be the best on the river for those fishing for walleyes and saugers.  Some good reports this week. Some sturgeon have been iced at night by those hunting dinosaurs.   Ice conditions can vary on the river as there is current, work through a resort or outfitter for safety.   Up at the NW Angle... Resorts up at the Angle are hard at work staying on the walleyes.  As a rule, 24 - 30 feet of water is the norm.   Similar to the south shore, using a noisy, more aggressive lure has been effective, as has a jigging spoon tipped with a piece of minnow.  Work the jigging line in one hole with a deadstick and a plain hook a foot off of the bottom in your second hole.   Many eater walleyes caught this week with a variety of other fish in the mix.  Some anglers fishing the Ontario side for crappies are finding some nice slabs. Driving through Canada to the Angle no longer requires vaccinations or the use of the ArriveCan App. For those looking to access the Angle while avoiding customs, snowmobiling across the lake on the marked trails or utilizing the Lake of the Woods Passenger (bombardier) Service are best options.  Fish houses are out through March 31st, walleye and sauger season through April 14, pike season never closes.

      Visitors to Minneopa State Park may soon notice fewer trees near the waterfall area of the park. The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources will remove 20 trees from the area, including 17 ash trees, beginning Feb. 6.Discuss below - to view set the hook here.

      I can confirm that I have 3-4 bars the entire drive from Cook to The Landing. When I winter park at a cabin near CigarGuy, I get two bars way up on the hill but still through the trees. There is good reception out on the lake but I haven't exactly been riding around and pulling out my phone to check my cell reception.   Depending on where you are, you may have 4 bars or none. I have none still, but that's because I'm on the north side of a hill with tall trees between my cabin and the tower.

      ~10" perch and an 8" bluegill

      Something else to just keep in mind here now too is that the deadline to remove permanent overnight unattended shacks is in exactly one month in the southern 2/3 of the state - March 6.  Plan ahead and don't let your castle get stuck out there beyond the deadline.  The DNR can and will confiscate it on site because I know people who have experienced this.

      I heard Green lake by Princeton has plowed roads and truck and castles out there. I will swing by to check it out. Please check the ice conditions for yourself. There is 4-6 inches if slush ice so take that off your totals as that is not very strong.
