Keep in mind that I am always looking for images for our newsletter; fish, sunsets, sunrises, other anglers fishing, equipment, anything fishing related. I can use them all.  Large, unedited images are best. Thanks.

Thank you, Jay!

Does this mean we can take our boats into Canadaian waters & fish as long as we don't anchor, land or meet up with another boat?

Tony, That is the way I interpreted the news release at the top of this thread but there was a lot of room for different interpretations. I guess it could still be interpreted differently by members of other Canadian agencies that patrol the water so I guess that is a wise suggestion to carry a copy of that page and vaccine card for those who have it.

I wonder how close two US fishing boats can get to each other (for witnessing and photographing catch) before they consider it "making contact". Probably can't hand a camera across. They didn't make any distinction about whether two US boats can make contact in Canadian waters so it looks like it may be best not to.

I definitely wouldn't do it. 

I crossed over into Canadian water and fished for an hour just after midnight on the 9th. I carried a printout of the newly written rules for fishing with me, along with my newly printed non-resident license and my Covid vaccination card. I didn't see any patrol boats so still don't know if I was legal, but will be continuing to cross over until I hear different. Unfortunately the floating weeds were brutal, especially for trolling. No action. As far as contact with another U.S.members boat for a quick picture or verification for Top 10 entry I won't hesitate. However I won't interact with a Canadian vessel, although that could be difficult if the blinking blue lights come toward Just hoping for common sense.

Was stopped on the St. Lawrence Wednesday by OMNR. We are good to go.
