Pass Port Needed to fish Border Lakes?

4 posts in this topic

I am wondering if a person now technically needs a passport to fish border lakes to legally reenter U.S. waters? I know they used to have the U pass, etc or check in at customs but do we now need a pasport in the boat? I know you need a RABC to go to Canada. I fish Sag and Gunflint.

Thank you for any help

That's a good question. I'd be happy to have an answer on that one as well!

I haven't heard anything on this yet. Would be nice to hear about though.

You do not need a passport to fish on the border lakes if you are a United States Citizen. You can get an I-68 boat permit from CBP at Grand Portage or I-Falls to allow you to fish and return to the US side without having to report to CBP in person. As of right now, you only need a government issued ID such as a drivers license and a birth certificate to drive over the border.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

        Sorry to make you hold up a bottom feeder, but we needed to see it!

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
