Count me in for team Canada once again!

Where can I ship my bait to a few weeks in advance so that I don't have any issues crossing the border?

You can send it to me

Phil, as mentioned last year:

Posted 18 August 2014 - 07:34 AM

Talked this morning with a US Custom Officer of Ogdensburg, NY Office and explained my eventual visit and purpose to the Waddington event and how does it work for bringing into the USA homemade carp bait. He referred me to the US Custom Agricultural Office in Alexandria, NY.

Talked to Ag Officer "Chiriko". As long as it is not for commercial purposes, not value much, and small resonable quantity of prepared corn or hempseed, there should be no problem. Just have to say that to border custom officer if questionned, and hope for the best of interpretation.

Just renewed my seasonal (one year) non-resident NY fishing license.

Ready to go.

I do have the web link, but I prefer calling them directly and they provide you with a confirmation #, until you receive it by mail. Web link gets complicated the odd time.

By purchasing your seasonal non-resident for US$50.00, you also get offered "Free", the NY saltwater license. The latter is good for fishing on Lake Ontario.

Supposingly salmon in the lake are considered saltwater species, but the same salmon caught in any of the estuaries going into the lake (e.g,, the Salmon River going through Pulaski all the way to Altmar) need the first fishing license. Go figure, free is free and maybe one day I'll go salmon fishing with an outfitting service (from NY state of course).

From Ontario, you would need an Ontario license, which I also have as a non-resident for three years.
