Fee dropped for portable fishing shelters
Doug Smith,star tribune

Minnesota's ice anglers won't have to license their portable fishing shelters any more -- unless they plan on leaving them on the ice overnight.

That's the result of a new law passed by the 2007 Legislature. Owners of about 60,000 portable shelters will be affected. Few portable shelters are left on the ice overnight.

Ice fishing shacks left overnight, which obviously would include most of the state's 90,000 permanent shelters, still must be licensed.

"The Legislature decided we shouldn't be licensing portables anymore," said Bob Meier, assistant commissioner in charge of government relations for the Department of Natural Resources. "They wanted to give people with portable shelters a break."

That saves anglers with portable shelters $11.50 a year but would cost the DNR about $768,000 in lost revenue. So the Legislature increased nonresident fishing license fees to offset that loss.

The cost of nonresident individual fishing license, now $34, will increase to $37.50 next year. The increase is expected to raise about $680,000 yearly.

Nonresident anglers took another hit: A $2 surcharge for aquatic invasive species management also is being added to all nonresident fishing licenses.

With the usual $1 issuing fee, that means a nonresident individual will pay $40.50 for a Minnesota fishing license. The state sells about 266,000 nonresident fishing licenses yearly.

Minnesota residents pay a $5 invasive species surcharge every three years with their boat registration fees.

Permanent shelters, whether with wheels or skids, still need a fish-house or dark-house license if they stay on the lake overnight.
There is a new three-year fish house license for permanent shelters.

Lawmakers extended the date on our fishing licenses to April 30 also.

An angler in a dark house or fish house can fillet fish or possess fish fillets within size limits if the angler is preparing the fillet or fish for a meal. In the past, anglers could not possess fillets on lakes with special regulations because DNR officers have difficulty determining if the filleted fish were within legal limits.

so you can fillet your fish on the ice or water and eat them. i cant belive they passed that law. now limits will probly drop to counter the people that are eating there limit and then catching another in the same time period. WOW i guss it would be ok but red and millacs are going to take a beating on the slot fish
