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...

Surface Tension

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?

      We drive by the stripping station on Cutfoot weekly & try to keep people up on that too. I think it may be a bit later here, will check it out tomorrow

      Have a couple spots that are 10' open, I live on north side of Pike Bay, large rocks along shoreline helps heat water. Hard to see the ice condition on the Bay as there is a lot of slush on top, once that melts and the warm sun hits the ice it will go quick. Our new Chesapeake pup discovered she lives on a lake yesterday.

      Where are you located?

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      Nice Crappie!

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
    • Bigfatbert
      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..
