How bad off are you if they ask is my concern.
I don't intend to bring it up....
HaHa
Anyone had them ask or pull you aside and go through your stuff and check you and find out ?
I've heard they send the whole party back.
Even if you have person with offense stay at motel until someone can come and get them they still won't allow others to go anymore ?
Just trying to find out the skinny...?

.I dont have any first hand experience but make sure the vehicles that you take are not registered to those " big bad criminals " that the canadians dont want in thier country!

If they ask you and you tell them yes,,well you aint gettin in. So your better off saying no!

I personally would take the money from those inflated prices and apply it to a state side trip. Im sure you could go first class here for the same amount , and nobody is going to say no to you over a DUI.

I will never go into Canada again ! The government there is anti gun, money grubbing, wanna be European socialists that reign under the protection of the GREATEST COUNTRY IN THE WHOLE WORLD!!!!!!! smile.gif

Yah I kinda agree with you but we fell into a honey of a deal.
The trip Is EXTREMELY CHEAP.
When I say cheap I mean cheap.
I can't rent a motel room for 6 days in Minnesota for what the whole trip everything included is costing me up there.
Don't worry I am not a anti minnesota fisherman.
I am part owner in a family owned cabin in Minnesota and love fishing our lakes...

Surface Tension

redmnfisher this was covered this winter. I think it was in the open water forum. There was a permit you could buy. It wasnt something you would want to plan ahead for.

Surface tension.
When you say this is something you don't plan ahead for do you mean that you can do this at the border if you get checked ?

I goofed, I meant to say plan ahead. It's wishy washy at the border. This is what I read. If you can find the post it will cover everything. Good Luck,ST.

Whatever you do, if they ask you if you have a dui, dont lie, that may land you in jail if they do a check and find out you were hiding something. I went across this past march with my 2 brothers, all of us have had dui's, from 20 yrs back to 9 yrs. breezed right threw,however we made arrangements on the us side too in case we had some trouble. depending on the age and severity of the offence there is a fee you could pay at the border to an immagrations officer 200 CN, that may or may not get you threw. its up to them to decide your fate,

I've been in and out of Canada at least 25 times in the past ten years and never been asked if I had a DWI. I have heard that if you are not the one driving it's not as big a deal if they do ask. I've also heard that for a price you can get a permit even if you have had a DWI in the past. You can probably find out by calling ahead.

Good Luck

This is something to definately check out in advance. I am not sure of the details but you can buy a permit? or something that will let you in without any trouble. If they run your drivers license and find a troubled past (according to them) they can charge you somewhere around $125-$150 to let you in OR they can deny you entry. I had some acquaintances run into major hassles last winter. I would contact the Canadian border crossing people. Good luck.

I wouldn't lie. They can run a check on you as easy as a state patrol officer. Very very good chance they won't let you in if you have a DUI on your record. You can apply for a pardon. That's what the $200 can is for. It's a processing fee. $ over the table instead of under. The good news is when I was researching getting a remote border pass I was told that sometime in June a new law will go into effect that allows them to go back only 10 years and older Dwi's won't ban you from giving them your hard earned US $. I have to agree with some of the other posts. The fishing can be fantastic but they hide behind their so called conservation. They say they are protecting their resources. But if you look at their regs. Every one of them allows you a chance to fish and hunt there if you spend significant US $. If you can get a cheap trip take it. But I'll think long and hard before going back. I have enough experence to know about the various fishing peaks on this side of the line.

So are you guys talking about the driver's record or anyone with you? If the driver has a clean record and using his/her vehicle would they ever ask for anyone elses license. What if you didn't have a driver's license, can they deny you entry. What are the odds they will ask if you have a dui. What about if you had an accident? Any more info would be appriciated going there next week Monday. Is any time of the day better to go accross?

      Thanks guys.  I checked out Modis for ice coverage and Navionics to help understand how things are laid out.  Knowing what areas certain fish prefer and those typical depths is a big plus.
    • urbaniceteam
      My wife and I are hoping to get up to Mille Lacs this Saturday and spend the night on the ice.  Does anyone have any last minute availability?  All the resorts I've contacted are booked. Thanks!
    • Borch
      Lots of nice fish!  Central Mn is cranking out some nice panfish.
    • eyeguy 54
      I did till about 2 then just had to go for a bit. LOL

      Nice fish guys. Royce doesn't look like you took the day off 
    • IceHawk
      Great Idea Rick 
    • Borch
      A plus is that the forecast is for a much nicer day Saturday.
    • Tom Sawyer
      Thanks for your work guys! You were showin' some serious team spirit being out there today. I would have helped but I had a few appointments today I couldn't reschedule. I know I'm available Friday to do any last day scouting/fine tuning....
    • IceHawk
      Definitely a grind out prefishing cats today for the gathering.  Weather made it to tough but I Jeff  and his brother pushed through the elements to try and find a few active schools .   Locating the schools were tough took a pile of holes and the augers got a workout for sure,  but fortunately  we did find a couple active schools. Jeff and his brother found a few on one lake and I found a decent school on another lake. The good news was that both schools were cruising shallow flats in both locations and about the same depths. Great news as this is a good indication they are feeding on these flats.   Amazeingly both schools were found on a inside corner. Bingo looks like we have a pattern formed. We iced and marked  a fair number of cats in both locations so things are looking good for Saturday. Plus is we added a few for the fish fry already  Jeff I'll keep plugging away out there hopefully I can dial them in even more I have a hunch there are a few more close by where we ended.
