I didn't fish much last year...What is the bottom line on crossing into Canadian water?? I read the lengthy report over on the Fishing reports forum but I am curious on what the tournament guys did last year....

I looks like getting the enhanced license may be the way to go because that allows you to call in 4 hours ahead of time...

Todd K told me he just called and didn't have any real issues.....

Just trying to get my ducks in a row before things take off....I got my license today..You would think the Ontario DNR would want to work with their border security people to make fishing Canadian waters as attractive as possible...At 80 bucks a pop I am sure the money adds up quick...

Just need 2 forms of ID which includes proof of citizenship and a photo. Call the 800# and give them the info they need. They will give you a number to present to their BP if stopped on the water. Under a few instances they could have you report for inspection. This should be a rare occurance. You call in WHEN you cross the border. Nexus or Canpass allows you to call in ahead of time. But all on the boat would need this.
