      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.

I am going to Saskatchewan the first week of october. I have never hunted in canada and any info would be greatly appreciated.Do I buy my license here in minnesota before I go or do I just get everything up there, What else should I know about crossing the border? I am bringing my dog and someone told I can't bring dog food up there, is this correct? Any info would help. thanks for any and all responses.

Unless you can buy the license online, you will most likely have to purchase it once you get up there. If you bring your dog, make sure you have all the proper paperwork on him (shots, etc.) from the vet. Not sure about the dog food?

You will need to clear you firearm in at Canadian customs. They take down all the info (serial #, caliber, model, action) before you go inside. You will fill out some paperwork and they will run your background through Immigration. There is a fee and plan on being there at least 30-40 min. if everything goes smoothly. Stick to the "yes sirs" and "no ma'ams" and you should be fine.

Good luck, I hope everything goes well for your first Canadian hunt!

Depending on where you are staying you can buy the license at the hotel. At least you can where I stay. I would also grab some of the gun paperwork you need to fill out at the crossing. It makes it a lot quicker if you have it filled out the next time you head up. Oh, bring lots of shells. It is great!

I am going to Manitoba the 10th and I have already got my license. I will try and get the web site for you. Maybe do a seach under Canadian fish and game. You can also get the gun paperwork to fill out from them. You need that paperwork in triplicate so fill it out at home and make copies. The gun fee is $50 per gun if I remember correctly. I am not sure about dog food, but you definately need shot records, especially rabies. You won't need a passport, but a drivers license/ID card and your birth certificate. I'll see if I can get that web site for you.

They lowered the gun registry to $25.00 last year. At the same time they shortened the time it was good for. When you paid $50.00 it was good for one year. Now the $25.00 is good for 90 days I believe.

Here is a website to get your licence info from. www.se.gov.sk.ca/fishwild/licence . I would order your licence before you go. Trying to find a open vendor in the middle of Saskatchewan can be almost impossible at times. You will need to find a place to buy your stamp however. Saskatchewan does not sell stamps via mail. Manitoba does however.

Good luck and like said before bring lots of shells. Oh ya, any amount over 200 shells you will have to pay duty on them. Know exactly how many shells you have on you before getting to the border and what the value is of them.

I see snowgoose helped you with the license link, here is the gun form link. The gun form is 909. This is for Manitoba, but I think they are the same. www.ctc.gc.ca

I see you are in Rogers. I live in Big Lake. If you want any more info on Canada I could meet up with you and answer any questions you might have. I have been going to Saskatchewan and Manitoba for about 7 years now. Put your email in a response to this and we can talk. Maybe over a beer cool.gif

      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!

      The tip-up was in slightly shallower water but the difference was probably about two feet.  Sounds like Devil's Lake is the good bet but that's quite a jaunt.  I have heard that water clarity is a big issue out west and that would really stink if you get somewhere and can't see.  Might soak some suckers on Mille Lacs since it looks like the pike angling season is extended again this year.  Good luck this weekend!

      Decoys sure have come along ways from the foam things my grandpa used. I bought some Avian X decoys and retired grandpa’s foam things. I have noticed I am getting more birds into range with the better decoys.

      Lot of ice on the shore, only place to fish as of Thursday is two harbors breakwall
    • Wanderer
      I found a great bait selection at the Baxter Fleet Farm today.  3 sizes of suckers, multiple sizes of golden shiners, and of course fat heads and crappies. The first bait shop I tried only had fat heads and crappies.
