Was out at Bangs today and there is open water in the spot I marked on the map in the attached photo.  This is just approximately were I seen it from where I was fishing so be careful in this area.

Sean you are correct.  My apologies.  $25 fee for portable shelters is good for the season.  UFCreel, Good point about measuring fish on Bangs.  Thanks for the reminder.

That's entirely incorrect.  If you keep a shanty on the ice (permanent) all ice fishing season, it's $45.  If you take your shanty with you and remove it from the ice each time, it's $25 for the season.

If you fish there a lot, it's not bad.  If you fish there once or twice like me, it's bad.

I'm pretty sure it's 25$ for the season not just one day.

Remember when measuring your fish. The village of Wauconda does it differently than the state does. Measure from tip to the y in the tail. You would have to catch an 11.5 inch crappie measured the states way to be a legal fish in Wauconda.

A 24-hour Seasonal Temporary Shelter is defined as a Shelter erected for use for a period not to exceed 24 hours and is removed after each use. That is right out of ordinance from police quick tip sheet handed out when you get permit. Note that it states"after each use". Permit is good all season. Jim

I wish it were a joke, but no, it is not.  $25 for the day, or $45 for the season.  Portable shelters are not exempt.  Permit is available at Village Hall / Police Department.  Here is the link to more information.

What a joke...$25 for me to fish the lake one time? does that apply to a one man flip over? Went back a ways and did not see a distinction. Was going to take a buddy out who lives there and has never ice fished this weekend and use my popup. I don't live in the area.  Not paying $25 to use my pop up one time.

Are they enforcing the 12 inch high reg. numbers?
