Fish House License Question

Recommended Posts

Atown24

I was wondering if you need a license for your fish house on the St. croix. I dont think you need one in Wisconsin, so I was just wondering if you need one for the river. Any information is greatly appreciated!

If you are a MN resident you need one, but if you are a Wisconsin resident you don't need one for portables. Yeah us Minnesotians get sucky regulations. Wisconsinites could seine minnows on the Croix, if u from are MN you can't. Another example of a lot of minds for one cause, "RIGHT" grin.gif

No I dont think you do need a shelter tag on the Croix.I buy one cause of the minnesota regs on the lakes,but have been out on the Croix without one.The season for walleye doesnt close til the end of february which is a bonus,now if I could just find a few confused.gifHondavxr,page 58 states that the boarder waters of Wisconsin ,Iowa and SouthDakota you are not required to have a shelter tag.

I've been checked what seems like a hundred times by MN and WI DNR and i have never had a shelter tag on my perm. or portable they are not needed for a resident of either state on the River. i just wish MN wasn't the only state in the U.S. with this B.S. regulation, a license for a fish house give me a break!

I see both side on the license deal. I actually see some merit to the permanent shack as I have seen people leave them out to long and sink to the bottom, leave trash around their shack all winter...etc. Portables, it seems, are just another way our MN DNR can raise a few bucks. I'm all for helping our resources flourish but that one has always bugged me!

I guess I just need to read more and you are right about trying to find the walleyes and crappies. I just assumed us MNers get the short end of the stick like always. grin.gif This year I practically gave up on hardwater fishing on the Croix, because the few times I have been out there nothing bit.

I to didn't know about the shelter license until last week. Doesn't matter though, I already have mine for Minnesota. As far as the crappies and the walleyes. I have found a few in places, crappies very light biters and the walleyes using things I haven't used before. My bud from Duluth came down last weekend and was catching them on a forage minnow without any minnow or bait. Go figure but it did get some fish

      Was out for a while on the Partridge River this afternoon, didn't have any minnows, managed one 13" crappie on Gulp waxes.  But, the old Strikemaster almost bottomed out-close to 30" of ice.

      I don't know what your Helix 7 requires in the manual, but a quick look would figure out if that 3amp is too small. Definitely wire your sonar to the motor battery using the correct gauge wire and fuse. If you connect it to another battery, it should be a stand-alone. Connecting to the trolling motor battery will generate interference.

      I've done cheeks quite a few times and they are always good. They take only a few seconds to carve out. I like to get the most out of the things I kill to eat, so I'm not afraid to pull them out of smaller ones. I'm glad to see that so many people picked up a new tip. That's the point of congregating on these forums. I wonder how many non-registered folks will read this and learn something new.

      I've been doing them for many years.  Like Cliff, a friend who was a guide on LOW brought some out prior to the main course-been doing it since.

      With the snow cover completely gone and lots of standing water, 60s in the forecast, with plenty of sunny days next week, and a good chance of rain mid-week; this may be my last weekend on the ice, South of Hwy 210 anyway . Fish have really been on the chew

      hey guys..i installed the helix 7. took it out the other day. it keeps  randomly shutting down, with the motor off it will stay on no problem. Heres where i think i f'd up. i used the same 3 amp fuse harness from the old sonar that came with the boat, the old hb depth only kind. its wired right to the ignition wire. i used the correct gauge wire where i needed it. im guessing its not getting enough juice? also if i wired it direct to a separate battery, how do i go about hooking up and on board charger? or would i be ok just wiring direct to the battery that runs the motor? thanks for any advice. those musky lures look so bad ass! nice work !!

      I think it is a matter of the material involved.   Ethanol can corrode some metal and dissolve some organic stuff like rubber or plastic that gasoline doesn't affect.   Or so some sources say.
