Canadian fishing licenses can be purchased in just minutes without a wait.
           
Be certain on the dates you plan on fishing as the license is non-refundable once purchased.  When ordering a one-day license, be sure to give them the correct date(s) that you are planning to fish. Licenses can be purchased as late as the morning of the trip. Purchases are made with a credit card The information needed for each non-resident fishing licensees is as follows: 1) complete name, 2) complete address, 3) date of birth, 4) eye color, 5) height, 6) gender
Because Ontario fishing licenses are easy to secure in advance without having to stop on Pelee Island, even on most rough lake conditions, fishing can still be possible.  Pelee is the largest of the Lake Erie islands, which offers anglers adequate protection in it's lee. May thru October are prime times to fish.  A form of boarder crossing creditionals are now needed to fish Canada or drivers license and birth certificate..

If you have a passport or accepted document, please bring it along

IMPORTANT WHEN FISHING LAKE ERIE AND CANADIAN WATERS

Be aware we may fish Canadian waters at times. If fishing is better Ontario, we would likely go.  
Please do not purchase a Ohio licenses until we have spoke.

If licenses are purchased in advanced, where there is no landing on Canadian soil, present boarder crossing rules allow us to fish Canadian waters with a passport, p[asscard, nexus card. A drivers license, along with a government issued birth certificate is all that is needed.
