If you're planning to make fishing trips into Canada in 2010, fishermen should be aware of a new boating law that began Sept. 15. The new Canadian law is called BOATsmart and requires all opertors of pleasure craft (regardless of size) to have a Boater Education Certificate as of that date. The cost of taking the Canadian test for the certificate is $45 and is good for life. Age doesn't matter. Before heading up there, I'd check with your outfitter for more information. Here in MN we have a program that if completed is recognized as being valid by the Canadian Coast Guard. We're mostly muskie fishermen and LOTW is all we fish.

We have the same thing here in Oregon and all out of state boats have to be inspected before they hit the water because of invasive species measures.
