Plan Your Trip
What You Need to Know to Cross the Border
Right now, visitors to Canada must have to have proof of two doses of an mRNA covid vaccine or one dose of the Janssen/Johnson & Johnson vaccine. This information will also need to be uploaded onto the ArriveCAN app or ArriveCAN website that can be found here.
- Be sure that you have the latest ArriveCAN app downloaded in order to avoid entering unnecessary information.
- When entering our address as your destination, be sure to enter the postal code as alternating letter/number/letter number/letter/number. P0V 2M0 (those are both zeros).
- Make sure all info is entered and finalized into the ArriveCAN app or website BEFORE you cross the border to avoid any problems.
- You are required to carry original copies of your vaccination record. Border officers may ask to see these documents
- To cross the border, you must be free of any Covid signs or symptoms.
Covid testing is no longer required in order to cross the border, however, you may still be selected for randomized testing (this will be at no cost to you).

This recipe is so easy and quick to put together. The hardest part is smelling the awesome aroma of the fish baking for 1 and a half hours while your mouth waters.
When the fish is done the skin and bones will peel off and out
It is really good with ritz crackers. We usually eat it as an appetizer.
I dreamt about this recipe for a year before I actually tried it since when I do get a little time to get out fishing which is not very often I am either looking for walleye for supper or casting giant lures looking for gators. Finally this winter I caught a couple of 25 inch Northerns through the ice to try this recipe. It’s a variation of Chicken Kiev, just with a different meat.
Recipe is for 2 people
