      Fishing Report Clubs - LIMITED MEMBERSHIP - Join Today - FREE   01/24/2018

      Fishing Minnesota had added a new menu item (see above) called Fishing Report Clubs. It's a way to keep the really good fishing reports coming and being shared only with those who also provide detailed fishing reports. We will only approve new members who request to join if they have already posted a recent fishing report in the area forum, associated with the Fishing Report Club area  you want to join. We are going to limit the number of regular memberships, in the Fishing Report Clubs, to the top 20  members in each Club, to those with the best frequency and quality fishing reports provided in the club and less so in the regular fishing report forum open to all members. The higher quality fishing report reserved for the club of course. If  you want fishing reports  around your area, I would Join Now, some of the clubs are starting to fill fast. Use the Fishing Reports Club link in the Menu above (after you've posted a fishing report in the regular area forum) and request to Join.

Crossing the border...

Recommended Posts

Will be crossing the border with my 16 year old son and 12 year old step-son over the Christmas break. Any suggestions to help make it easier getting through the Canadian customs?

If you head to the NW angle, do you still need a passport or birth certificate/driver's license... etc?

You dont need a passport yet but I is not far off so if

you intend to make a few trips north of the border it

would be wise to get one. Birth certificate is what

they ask for now a days.

I got my passport before this falls trip to Selkirk and

they didnt ask for it at the border, I was pretty upset.

If you are a single adult crossing the border with a child, or children, you need birth certificates (and should have an additional form of identification), and a dated letter from the absent parent or guardian granting you permission to take the child or children out of the country. Canada will not allow you to enter without this type of identification.

Respect. Show respect for the border agent and the foriegn country that you are interring. Biggest thing that we see bringing trouble is a wise guy. Answer yes sir, no sir and realize that nothing you say is funny, so don't try.

Same goes for coming back accross

If you can keep from covering your trailer or truck that helps to.

Good luck & have fun!

Not sure how but they seem to be able to completely remove the sense of humor of all border guards, could be a some sort of secret surgical procedure grin.gif

When my husband takes our kids alone I write him a note and have it notarized. We also have with us notarized copies of birth certificates. We have always been told they wish everyone did it like this. We have also never had any problems what so ever.

Good Luck and have fun.

P.S. you will also need a note from your step son father or mother. They will question him a fair amount to make sure both parents no he is there and more is supposed to be there. They get a little touchy with step children and your kids friends.

Still no worries just be prepared is the best solution.

I'm definetly no expert on this, but I work at the Greyhound Bus station in Fargo. We send ppl across or to the border rather, every day...My advice is, more is better(as in being prepared) and be ready to answer their questions. I see ppl get rejected all the time who simply don't take the minimal(although its more nowdays) effort to prepare the proper paperwork and identification.

And for an adult, all you need is your government issued photo-identification(drivers lisence) AND a copy of your birth certificate. You may need a passport as early as sometime next summer. For your best friend just make sure you have his rabies papers.

      I'm really leaning to buying a mojo scoot and shoot amd trying that this year talk about a adrenaline rush.

      I've used a full body full strut before can be good or bad depending on a birds mood at the time. In certain situations they can be a killer,

      Shiners and suckers not needed for us this weekend.  The better pike were sucking down my wife’s crappie minnows on a demon in 20 feet.

      I have 3 avian x hens two feeders and one head up. I gave semi strut Jake as well.  I want to get a full strut

      Hey relax, I haven't been out since that weekend. With an 11 months old at home, fishing gets put to a halt quickly! I've been following the threads as much as I can. I know guys are catching crappies in the deeper water still, basins with the chance to go up to shallow. French is usually good for that but have heard Roberd's has come in late. Two weeks ago there were ice castle's everywhere and we were drilling to the end of the auger. I like Cedar too near Faribault because it's an easy access and typically holds fish. You'll have to let me know where you go and how you do! Fish on!

      Have to Agree moose the turkeys are becoming a little smarter each year. Better decoys have definitely upped my odds last few years. Seriously considering those Dave smiths or some Avian X.  Moose what are you using for a setup combo with those Avians? My customs look nice but always looking for something better

      Watching fish on the camera is really fun> One day a musky was being a real pia!  But it was fun watching him. Some days it's around some days not. today I saw him only once.  You sure can learn alot on what it looks like on your depth finder and how the fish are reacting to the different techniques a guy uses!  Have fun, good fishing!
