Default Fishing in Canada

Just curious if anyone has fished in Canada this season yet. With all the latest reports of having to call canpass upon entering Canadian water, has anyone had any problems with crossing into Canada to fish. It seems every year there are new rumors about either having a passport, birth certificate or other form of I.D. to fish in Canada. I'm sure many of you heard about the fisherman on the St. Lawrence that didn't call inward, was boarded by CBA then had to pay a $1,000.00 fine to get his boat back. Curious to hear if any one has had any issues here.

After a US Congressman got involved, Canada relented and gave his $$ back and agreed that the officer was a bit overzealous.
There have been some other posts here about it.
Hope this helps.

I've been over there twice since "new rule". pretty effortless. I dialed the 800 number after I launched. they asked name, date of birth , name of boat and OH numbers as well as passenger names and birthdates. They gave the ok and a number to write down and off we went. First time it was busy and put on hold for ten minutes but no biggie.

I have a 888 number but am not sure that is the correct one. What is the 800 number that you have been using.

Thanks for the reply, Boatnut. Will be spending the second week of August on SBI and I may want to take some time fishing Canadian water.
