I know I shouldn't be thinking about winter fishing...but I can't help it. Is a guy allowed to drive snowmobile on all of the lakes that are motorized in the BWCA? If so, then what are the rules for snowmobiling on the Canada side?

Snowmobiles are NOT allowed to drive on all of the lakes that are motorized in the BWCAW. I believe there is a very limited area that they are allowed to use. The best thing to do would be to check with the U.S. Forest Service office in the area you are considering going into. Also if you went into Canada you would need a RABC permit and a liscense if you were going to fish on that side of the border.

The only area inside the BWCA that I know of where you can take a sled is Sag and you have to stay on the snowmobile corridor. If you go into Canada you'll need RABC.

Something new is the I-68 US Customs Permit. Theres a thread going already, if you Click Here you can find more info on it.

Thanks guys. I've snowmobiled Lac la Croix in the winter and then walked into the American side to fish. Do you know if a guy can snowmobile anywhere on the Canadian side or do they have regulations against that too?

      Supposedly this fish was snagged.  I am reading online at various sources that it may be prohibited from state record certification.

      I fished with a guide on the Detroit River two weeks ago who had the new Panoptix unit ($4000 to get setup).  Incredible what you could see as it is a live image.  Have to say it can frustrate the hell out of you sometime,  you see the fish just looking at your bait and then swimming away.  Very cool tech!  You could actually see the fins on the fish in the image and truly judge the size somewhat.

      7-10 days the lake will be ice free. Which will be almost right on average ice out (April 30). Pike bay is open up to Duffy island working up the bay. Paddled from the Pike river up the bay to the ice line tonight.

      Fake chirp as marketing gimmick.    They need something to convince folks to buy their unit and dump their unit from two years ago.    I am reserving judgement on the new higher frequency units.  "mega" and equiv.   Side scan actually seems like it could be useful.  Lots of stuff is changing these days in electronics.       I think what would be cool is an underwater drone with several transducers that communicates back to the boat wirelessly with sonar and video.....    Fresh water doesn't block radio waves too much so probably could use radio communication at least for a limited distance.       Some sort of modulated acoustic waves would work too.       Can't you just see, sitting in the boat, driving the mini-sub around looking  for fish, with sonar to help?   I bet the open water musky guys would pay big bucks for one....😂
