remot border pass

Recommended Posts

bigwater

Have been to Rainy for a week the last 3 years, staying at Island View. We are planning on going into Canada for the first time and was wondering if a a "remote border pass" is required? If required how do we get one? Can we buy a Canadaian fishing license in Mn.?

you can get a license by phone 1-800-667-1940 and to get a border pass type in (canpass remote border pass) on yahoo seach . It takes time to get it so be sure to send for it long before your trip

Ok, so if I'm just going into Canada, by boat, to fish for a day, do I need to have one? Seems real expensive for a daythanks again

If you're going for a day the easiest would be to trailer your boat across and land on the Ontario side. The only cost then is the bridge toll providing you land at a public access.

Last time I bought one it was $30. You can put your entire family on one pass.

You do have another option to getting the RABC for just one day. If you can pick your day (and it sounds like you can) drive your boat into the CANOPS store at Fort Francis and call into the Canadian Border Services and they will send an agent out to meet you at the dock (this is in lieu of the RABC and there is no charge for this service). At the CANOPS store you can buy bait and required licenses. It is probably 12-13 miles by water from Island View which isn't bad if the wind is down. Remember, if you choose to cross into Canada that when you return that you will also need to check in with the U.S. officials as well. There is a video booth at Bowman's landing you can use to check in if you opt not to get an I68 permit (the US version of the RABC - $16). While the border issues seem to be a hassle, the reality of the situation is that both the Canadian and US government are very accomadating as long as we all do our part to follow the rules. Let's hope it stays that way.

      That’s pretty awesome! I’ve been keeping an eye out around the house but haven’t seen enough activity to coax me out in the temps we’ve been having.  We mainly have fox around the house, and only one good yote.  We had a young wolf do a lap around the house in the spring but haven’t seen him around since.  I know I couldn’t shoot him but I’d sit out just to see him if he started showing up again. Mainly turkey tracks as of late.

      Probably two of the safest bets in the area. I haven’t fished Crooked off Bunker for several years but it always seemed to have plenty of fish. Have you ever been on the Moore lakes near 65 and 694?  Sometimes they get a lot of attention, and I’d have to think for good reason.   Twin Lakes in Robbinsdale used to be a favorite stop for us when we were young.  Did good on pannies and surprisingly well on pike. If you don’t mind traveling further west, Medicine is a pretty good lake.  Lots of memories fishing the crappie hole in front of the beach on the southwest side.

      Gulp spray seems to help also.

      I prefer ciscoes too.  I just don’t always have access to them.  They leave a better scent trail.  That’s part of the reason for a little kick of salt on the frozen suckers.  Anise could help too.

      Not that I know of. First time I used one and constantly had to clear the shavings and drill kept cutting out. Drill is a 1200# fuel.

      I always did best with frozen Cisco's suspended on a quick strike rig.

      I tried a few times during that 30 below weather. Saw nothing but thousands of wolf tracks. That night while we sat on the hunting shack deck having a cigar a pack of coyotes we're yipping out by our trucks 400 yds away. They were probably tipped off by our generator though and couldn't get them to come in. I did see 2 moose 30yds in front of me going into one calling spot. That was cool.

      Coon lake up 65 and off 22. Also Lake George. Both pretty good panfish populations to keep busy.

      Thanks for the replies guys. Usually target panfish and eyes so actually going for pike is kinda a whole new world to me. lol

      Lots of little sunnies there is a spring in there in the deepest spot be care full. There are better lakes in my opinion.
