I hear portable ice fishing shelters won't need a license next year. They are raising the price of nonresident licenses to make up for the money the dnr would lose from the portable fee being dropped. Do any of you know if the 7 day license is going up also? I'm from out of state and I really don't mind the price going up if it does away with the portable fee. I never understood why they had that fee in the first place if most people didn't leave their portable on the ice overnight anyway.
Even eminent chartered accountants are known, in their capacity as fishermen, blissfully to ignore differences between seven and ten inches, half a pound and two pounds, three fish and a dozen fish. ~ William Sherwood Fox, Silken Lines and Silver Hooks, 1954
