Can-Am question

Recommended Posts

In march our group heads to Mb to stay/fish buffalo bay, where we fish is virtualy on the boarder Mb/Mn. do we need a remote border pass to step back into Mn. to fish?
all are licsensed for both Mb and Mn. with bait reciepts from Mb.
We have been doing this for years and never gave it much thought but with terrorism and increased border patrol im thinking its worth asking

I can't see why you would need a special permit or otherwise, especially fishing boundry waters such as this. To eliminate a potential problems with the authorities it would be wise to make the necessary phone calls to the Canada Customs or U.S. Cumtoms.
They'll be only to glad to steer you right!

By the way, is pike the effort on this trip?

Yes I'll give customs a call, just thought there might be some input from others here.

I guess it depends on what side of the line we catch a fish, could be either a jack or a pike. hehe

    • I'd like to see you cut them in half first.......😋
    • Hello from the NW Angle!

      Water temperatures are starting in the low 70’s in the morning, reaching mid to upper 70’s in the evening.

      Minnesota walleye action can be hot running deep diving crank-baits straight, down rigging or lead core. Soft bottom areas can also be worked with spinners and a night crawler.  Fish have been favoring gold on bright days and orange, chartreus or pink in low light.  Many larger northern pike this last week in the boat via crank-baits just outside of rock reefs and points.

      Canadian walleye fishing has been more productive away from reefs and points in soft bottomed areas. The best method is to pull a spinner to find concentrations along the bottom and switch to jigging to fill out limits.

      Musky attitude in Canada varies day to day. Plenty of fish are still being caught in shallow weeds including a couple of 50+ giants this past week.  Fish are also being caught in more traditional mid-summer spots such as rock reefs and points.  The most productive baits this week were crane baits or other flat baits, buck tails and top waters. 

      Until next week,
      Sunset Lodge
    • we do a package similar to big dave's shrimp boil but with walleye layer of sliced new taters on the bottom, then the walleye filet, add carrots, bell pepper and sweet onion from the garden, w/butter pat and old bay i seal the packet and poke once with a fork to let some of the steam escape. on the grill at 350 for 40 minutes  
    • 5 qts pickled green beans, 2-2gal jars cukes.
    • Port Washington has been hot but mostly cohos.  A lot can change in a couple weeks.  Will wait and keep our options open as long as we can.
    • Do you boil the eggs before smoking them?
    • that's my thoughts to Bobber...
    • Good question Mike,  although eggs take on a lot of smoke fairly quick it might be worth trying it both ways. Whatta got too lose, eggs are cheap!!  🤓
