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...

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?

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Thanks for the reports. Steve, were you at Long Point today? I saw a Stratos

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
