Can anyone direct me where to get a Canadian license? It is my understanding that there are a few places who will take your information and go to Canada once a week to get the licenses, so that you do not have to cross the border if you don't have a passport or have time.
I would like to go out musky fishing with someone who fishes the canadian waters, but need a license first! Thanks.

The ferry in marine city will take you across so you can buy one without having to deal with the customs issue. But if you have the time lakeside fishing shop is the easiest. Google their website and you can use a cc to purchase online and they will mail it to you within a week.

Lakeside goes on Thursday morning. Get there Wednesday, pay your $$$ and pick it up Thursday afternoon.

Marine City or Agonac Ferry. Take a ride accross the river (dont get off the boat). Get it immediately.

Go online to MANY places and purchase via CC and wait for it in the mail.

Many ways to get it, many discussions on here as to how.

SEARCH in the top right hand corner is your friend!!!

Just a word of warning, if you do fish in Canadian waters make sure you have all your Canadian bait receipts in order. As I understand it you need a dated proof of of purchase for minnows and or worms / crawlers. If you don't and you get checked your in for a word of hurt.

If you drop anchor in canadian waters you must report via phone to canadian customs. I think the number is 800 CAN PASS. Same applies if you dock and go on shore. Once you report to canadian customs, if you do not have a form I 68 for all people om board, you must report to US Customs via video phone or call them.once you return to US waters. Not sure of the number. There arent a lot of video phones to use. I make sure to never anchor or go to shore in Canada. You need to check the rules. I am not up to date, since as I stated, we never anchor or dock so it doesnt apply to us.

theyve revised the anchoring part of it.if only anchored in canadian waters you will not have to report into us customs, so its same as if drifting/trolling but you still have to report to canada that has not changed. you dont want to get caught without a call in number

Do you mind if I ask where you got your information from? I would be interested in seeing osme verification as I do travel in Canadian waters quite frequently, and enjoy many anchorages on the canadian side but have not had the courage to drop anchor with the recent changes in laws/rules. Some of my favorite places to anchor are in the Canadian waters. I knew about the ferry in Marine City, just wasnt sure if I needed a passtport on the ferry also. Thanks.

I did the Marine City Ferry and let customs know I was just getting a license, don't forget your reading glasses though... the first mate was NOT IMPRESSED.

Then went to Gars for a burger (great burgers ).

Gars Bar, I haven't been there in years, and they had great burgers then too.
