I saw it on this board somewhere but I can't remember where. Can someone please give me the web address for the Remote Border Crossing Permit for Rainy Lake.

Thanks.

HI JOE,

YOU MUST EITHER DO IT ON LINE, OR IN PERSON, YOU CAN'T TRAVEL BY BOAT PRIOR TO HAVING THE PERMIT. THE PURPOSE OF THE RBCP(REMOTE BORDER CROSSING PERMIT) IS TO ALLOW YOU TO GO INTO CANADA, BY BOAT, WITHOUT GOING THRU CUSTOMS 1ST!!! THE COST IS 30 CANADIAN, FOR YOU, YOUR WIFE & KIDS(I BELIEVE, THEY MUST BE 18 & UNDER) NOW IF 4 GUYS ARE IN THE BOAT, EACH INDIVIDUAL MUST HAVE THE PERMIT., AND NOW A NEW LAW...WHEN YOU ENTER BACK INTO THE U.S., YOU MUST GO TO A U.S. CUSTOMS BOOTH & CHECK BACK INTO THE U.S.!!!

PRETTY SOON LAWYER JOE, PEOPLE ARE GOING TO HAVE TO HIRE YOU, TO RIDE IN THE BOAT WITH THEM, SO CAN UNDERSTAND THE LAWS.

MY UNDERSTANDING IS NOW YOU HAVE TO GET ANOTHER PERMIT FROM THE U.S. BORDER PATROL, I BELIEVE THE FINE IS HUGE IF YOU GET CAUGHT WITHOUT IT, AND THEY I SUPPOSE HAVE THE RIGHT TO CONFISCATE YOUR BOAT. I DO NOT THINK ITS IN EFFECT UNTILL TILL 2006, SO YOU NEED THE PERMIT NOW, BUT THEIR IS A GRACE PERIOD.

I'M SURE THIS WILL BECOME A BIG TOPIC!!!

SINCERELY,

FISHMIESTER

no doubt. as fun as it would be to face the law, and potentially lose equipment and time on the water - i too will stop by the i-falls customs office and give them 16 bones.

Anyone have more information on the new US permit? I've got my RABC and will be coming up in June but I can't find any info on the new US permit.

Thanks "FM" for the detailed info and helping me avoid an illegal entry into Canada by boat. laugh.gif

I will follow the masses and prepare my legal tender of 1600 Old, Dingy, and Green United States Pennies (in a bag and not in rolls) to surrender at the U.S. Customs Office in I-Falls for my permit to legally return to my country of origin. mad.gif

One more thing, "FM", for the RBCP to we simply pay the bridge fee and cross the bridge....wait our turn inside the Canadian Customs Office to pay the 30.00 for the RBCP....then pay another bridge fee and cross back to the U.S. where we then enter the U.S. Customs office with our Pennies? confused.gif

Thanks,

Joe

I can appreciate the law abiding nature of those who will pay for the permit to re-enter their own country. But I'm serious as a heart attack when I say I won't pay to get back into the country where I was born and served proudly in it's United States Marine Corps. NEVER.

I'll sit in jail, but they'll not get a penny from me.

HI JOE,

JUST WALK OVER, JUST PARK YOUR VEHICLE BY BORDER BOBS, THEN STOP BY THE U.S. CUSTOMS & TELL THEM YOUR WALKING ACROSS TO CANADIAN CUSTOMS TO GET A RBCP., NO CHARGE FOR WALKING OVER. YOU WILL BE ABOUT 2 BLOCKS FROM YOUR VEHICLE, WHEN YOU GET TO CANADIAN CUSTOMS(SHORT WALK) BRING SOME CANADIAN MONEY, YOUR DRIVERS LICENSE., AND HOPEFULLY NO-ONE IN YOUR PARTY HAS A D.U.I.(AS THEY CAN'T GET A PERMIT, OR GET INTO CANADA) HOPE THIS HELPS.

SINCERELY,

FISHMISETER

      First open water fishing this morning. Planed to go to Clearwater but water was 6 inches over docks. Drove over to Sylvia/Twin and access was great. Water very clear, could see bottom in more than 12 ft.  Caught several sunfish and bass. 2 northerns and a crappie. Most went back including a 9.5 in male sunny. Beautiful fish. Most caught in less than 3 ft water.  Temp was 61.

      We are high up on the hill so no worry of water damage, but our electrical box wasn't too far from the rising lake water. I hope that issue doesn't start hitting others as well!

      I was up for opening weekend, but only fished Saturday morning. I had a limit by 6:30 so headed back to the cabin to get work done. In about an hour I lost 2 on the way to the boat, boated a 13" that I threw back, and kept a 14, 15, 16, 17. Nice size eaters. Jig and minnow in 15-20 FOW.  Water temps where I was fishing was 41.    I have damage to 2 docks and several trees down. I hope this water level goes down soon! Good luck everyone.

      Welcome to the forum. Buying clothing and gear for outdoor activities is part of the fun! 🙂

      I'm willing to buy this white shirt. It will look awesome with the juicewrld pants.

      Opener was decent on Saturday and absolutely on fire Sunday. 9 eyes, three over 25 in, one at 28.5. A bunch of largemouths, some crappie and perch and a TON of bullhead. One of those weekends where your hands start to hurt.

      I'm quite happy since I'm going fishing with a pal for the first time in a long time. We plan to purchase some clothing for it, such as exclusive hoodies.

      The majority of docks can't be put it. Water is over the top of pretty much every permanent dock.  Very few docks are in.

      Crappies are all up shallow in the south metro. Caught this one shore fishing with a beetle spin from a more secluded lake without much access. All of the crappies were between 7-9 inches with this 11.5" being the exception
