Boating to Canadian waters

6 posts in this topic

With the new regs for border crossing, will it still be possible to day trip by boat to Canadian waters?

Thanks for any insight.

HI SRJ,

WON'T BE A PROBLEM...I'M GUESSING OUR CURRENT RBC PERMITS ARE STILL VALID THRU THE DATE POSTED ON THE PAPER.

SINCERELY,

Thanks FM. Guess I'm more concerned about crossing back to the US. Doing away with the I68 was nice but now I'm unsure. Maybe have to call customs. I seldom cross the line, but it is a nice option on some of the really busy days.

HI SRJ,

TO GET BACK ACROSS IN TO YOUR OWN COUNTRY, YOU NEED A VALID DRIVERS LICENSE & A COPY OF YOUR BIRTH CERTIFICATE AS OF TODAY.

Fishmiester, I just called Baudette and I Falls customs-spoke to Officer Johnson-both said there are two options. The I-68 or using the camera setup at Bowmans. I thought the I-68 was a thing of the past but I guess not.

HI SRJ,

YEP STILL CAN USE THE I-68, BUT NOT WHEN GOING BY PLANE.

SINCERELY,

        Well it didn't take long for "that guy" to show up.    It shouldn't be too difficult to understand why I'd rather fish for trout than buy them at the store...   Do they holdover though? I thought that was a lake stocked right before freeze up and then all but completely fished out after the Winter opener.

      The walleyes that spawn at the Pike River dam are supposedly only about 5% to 8% of the walleyes that spawn on Vermilion. The rest spawn in other rivers, creeks, reefs. and  on shorelines. Cliff

      Assuming the ratios given to Cliff by the hatchery are accurate, then:   With Hatchery:  708 quarts X 100,000 eggs is 70,800,000 eggs.  Survival rate is (low end) 75%, so total fry is 53,100,000.  If 10% go back into Vermilion, that's net +5,310,000 new fry this year.   Natural reproduction:  70,800,000 eggs at 3% (high end) survival rate would be net +2,124,000 for vermilion this year.   5,310,000/2,124,000 is 2.5X the walleye fry in vermilion this year compared to natural reproduction.   I'd take a 250% return on pretty much anything!     Ancillary benefit is +47,790,000 fry to other MN waters.     I'm sure there's a downside, but I can't see it.

      We got onto the ice down there this winter one time and it was really easy to get on and off of the ice right there.  Looked very friendly for boat traffic and the way the rocks jog out to protect the access it is on my hit list if I need to find an access to launch from this summer.  If you use google earth you can check it out.
