Fishing Canada
« on: September 02, 2011, 09:34:14 PM »

Thinking of fishing a few spots near the shipping channel the first spot I am going to hit is Marker A-20 in the south channel. Is that marker on Indian waters, I have a Canadian license but not one for the Indian waters. My second question is can you buy minnows on the U.S. side and use them in Canadian waters. Any help with this would be great.

Thanks,
Bass Ninja

A-20 is in Walpole Reservation territory.

I'm not 100% positive about the minnow question without research to augment my porous memory but I believe you cannot do that legally unless the minnows are dead and in a baggie or similar. You can't dump them into the water either. If you have live minnows, be prepared to have proof where you bought them and the proof should be for somewhere in Ontario.

Help stop invasive spcies. Don't move fish between unconnected bodies of water. Clean, drain and dry your boat before launching on another water body.

That is exactly correct DK.  You have to buy live minnows in Canada.  On the Walpole license question, you can only fish in the St. Clair River Channels on the reservation starting September 18, 2011 until December 31, 2011.  That is what they call the extended season.  It says that right on the license.  If you are fishing the reservation, I highly recommend that you get a license.  You can purchase that at Lakeside Fishing Shop on Jefferson Ave in St. Clair Shores right over the counter.

REVTRO is correct concerning fishing the reservation also. You are still entering Canadian water and you still must call the CBSA. I called the other day when I was fishing Erie and it took all of about 5 minutes to complete the whole process.
