Northwest Angle Reg. Question

Recommended Posts

dowhead

Hello - I am new to the board and have a queston. A group of us will be visiting the Northwest Angle. We will be entering Canada through Warroad and then we will be entering back into the USA where we will be fishing only in USA waters. Does anyone know what the possession limit of Walleyes and Northerns are when we leave the Angle and travel through Canada and then enter the USA again in Warroad (Do we follow the Canadian Regs? or can we follow the Minnesota Regs?)<BR>Thanks is advance

You cannot possess both MN and Ontario limits........You have to choose either or........<P>Also, do not purchase your fishing license in Sprage, Manitoba (I'm talking the gas station at the corner).........They are a bunch of theives.........Just don't even both stopping there when you go through.......Also, don't bother working with the "duty free" station at the Manitoba border crossing.........That is for Canada residents only...........<P>

Thanks for the information - If I am understanding the info correctly then I believe I can possess the Minnesota limits and follow the Minnesota regulations while exiting Canada as long as I only fish in Minnesota Waters.<BR>Thanks again for the info<BR>

Dow,<P>Your last statement is correct.<P>As a side note:<P>I've bought my Canadian license at the Shell station in Sprague many times. No problems. Anywhere in Canada you are best off having Canadian funds, as exchange rates often aren't great.<P>The duty free isn't only for Canadians either. If you spend 24+ hours in Canada and have receipts to prove it you can buy booze etc... duty free. You can also buy stuff there cheaper then you can in the US (booze) even with the Duty tacked on at the US border (if you haven't stayed 24 hours in Canada)<P><p>[This message has been edited by widetrack (edited 08-16-2004).]

OK, let me give the details of my last trip.......<P>We stopped at the Sprage gas station to buy our license..........We have bought them there in the past........<P>I threw out my credit card and the guy behind the counter said he can only take cash..........He said the license was $20 American funds........Thought......whatever, no big deal..........Well, we paid $20 American for a $24 Canadian license........He over charged us, just to get that "green"........[PoorWordUsage]..........Didn't realize it until we got on the road when we put the math together...........<P>Then, when we went through the border crossing, we asked the Canadian guard if where we turn to go to the duty free station that is right there.........He said it was for people leaving, not coming in..........If we would of turned around, we would of been able to purchase, but not going in...........according to him..........

Yep, best to carry Canadian funds when in Canada. It isn't just there where you will get poor exchange rates.<P>And yes, Duty frees are for when you are leaving Canada, Your first paragraph implied that it was only for Canadian citizens.

      Was up last week on Kab and it seemed that your bait depended on where you were fishing. Some areas leeches did good, but others minnows were the go to. We lindy rigged the entire trip and on days when wind was gusty we did pretty good shallower with minnows in 13 to 20 ft....then some areas we were doing better with leeches 16 to 32 ft. No wind was like the dead sea.

      catch and eat the crawfish too!!!

      I can second A Warrior.  Jumbo leeches for Walleye.  Northern were more interested in minnows and crawlers.

      A Carp Anglers Group Fishing social will be on June 23rd in Coon Rapids. If you enter the park from the Coon Rapids side (Egret Blvd), take a left from the parking lot and drive towards the picnic shelters. Take a right at the first stop sign and park in the lot. We will be fishing in the stretch or river behind the picnic shelter/playground. Start time can be before 7am and you can fish into the evening if you want. There will be medals for the 3 largest fish captured.

      Thanks for lots of good info guys.  Sounds like if I do things right I can have fish for breakfast, lunch, and dinner. I'll try fishing that reef for some evening walleye. Bobber fish for some sunnies in the weeds.  @delcecchi, I catch enough Walleye in the summer that I really don't want to ask. I won't shy away from a bite. I'll check that little bay for crappies.  @vermilionfox, Wow that is a lot of location data. My PROP thanks you for the rock info!  Merry Go Round? I have another question regarding the Rusty Crawfish... are they a problem on the west side of the lake too? Bloody mini lobsters. I remember spending lots of time using orange for bass and walleye since they were a major food source. Been years since I've done that.  Gone Out Fishin

      I don't think you will be able to run it on that generator. I have a yamaha 2000 and I have not tried it yet but from everything I have read you need 2800 watts to start the AC. All the 2018 ice castle fish houses are coleman mach 3 plus AC I think.

      The fishing was pretty decent over the weekend.  Walleyes were biting on rigs with leeches or crawlers. Caught 12 between Friday and Saturday with with 4 nice slotters.   Biggest being a 24".

      Star Island in Cass Lake has remote, boat in primitive camping as well.

      Just returned from a successful trip on Kab.  Minnows did catch fish, but leeches were the ticket

      Angling regulations on Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River in northern Minnesota would change under a proposal being considered by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources to reduce the number of walleye and sauger allowed to be kept in the winter on the lake, and on the river allowing only catch-and-release fishing for those fish in the spring.  “We recently went through a public process of updating the Lake of the Woods Fisheries Management Plan and identified several potential areas of concern with regard to current levels of harvest,” said Phil Talmage, Baudette fisheries supervisor. “That’s why we’re discussing these potential changes.” The proposed changes would reduce the aggregate limit of walleye and sauger in the winter to align with the summer regulations on Lake of the Woods, and make spring angling on the Rainy River catch-and-release for walleye and sauger. The changes would go into effect starting March 1, 2019. Anglers will see yellow signs at public water accesses around Lake of the Woods and the Rainy River later this month notifying the public of the proposal. Future news releases will provide the details of a formal public comment period during the fall, and will include ways to provide comment to the DNR on the proposal. For more information on Lake of the Woods management go to mndnr.gov/lakeofthewoods. Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
