Recommended Posts

We will be coming up on the 30th thru the 2nd and I was wondering where I have to go to get a canadian fishing license. Also was wondering if you have to have a canadian boat license. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you in advance.

Bins we order our liscense ahead of time, but you can go through Baudette and cross the border into canada. When you cross the town of Rainy lake is right across border it has a small bait shop gas station that sells fishing liscense.Dont bring live bait across not legal they will make you dump it out. When you cross back into minnesota stop at the border crossing and buy remote border pass they open at 8:00 am you must have that to cross back and forth on river. You dont need to buy boat stickers for Canada. I also will be up that same weekend with many friend's. annual trip that can't be missed best fishing of the year.

Thanks for the info. Last year was the first year that we have fished the rainy. We had a great time and decided that we had to come back this year. We kind of pushed our luck last year by fishing the whole river without the canadian lisence so I figured this year we better get one. Where do you go to order them in advance including this remote border pass?

Thanks alot I will check out their site. I tried to get a room there for the 30th - 2nd but they were already booked. I ended up getting a cabin for the three of us a schusters resort. The walleye inn was also out of double rooms. Hopefully we can get the boat in at birchdale by then since that is where we went last year and did pretty well. Will be in grey alumnacraft with merc motor with my dad and sisters boyfriend. Stop by and say hello if you see us out there. Good luck to all.

      First Welcome to FM, They definitely can be caught during the day but the water is really clear usally on that lake and I have found over the years of fishing it that the evening into the dark bite can be way better. Don't rule out trying to target those fish you saw.  Some options are fishing  on a cloudy day, or try down sizeing your presentation as you may surprise yourself and put a few topside.

      Electrical tape for me nice and smooth. If your worried about the residue at the end of the season a little tip is rub  toothpaste on the cork work it around then wash in water.  Cleans them up takes the scum off and they look good as new when done.

      I broke a bunch also at first  my bear paws just squeeze a little to hard! You definitely need to be carefull when putting them on to much pressure and another one bites the dust. Great bobber and concept can be used for a slip or fixed bobber just a little fragile.

      Some good sticks there!

      Looks good Royce hopefully you can put it to good use soon. The ice is sure getting thick if it keeps up I will be ordering a extension for my K drill soon or bring out the  StrikeMaster and extension.
