Since 2/3 of Lake St. Clair is Canadian, Canadian law requires a one-day Canadian fishing license for each angler 18 years of age and older to fish in their waters.
The cost of a one-day Canadian non-resident license is not included in the listed fees. Prices for Canadian licenses are set by Lakeside Fishing Shop and the Canadian government, not by Miller's Sportfishing, and the entire amount goes to them. The Canadian government does not refund license fees for any reason.
- If you would like to obtain your Canadian licenses from Lakeside Fishing Shop ($25 each), you may call them at 586-777-7003, or click HERE to apply online.
Captain Don will pick them up for you and have them onboard the day of your trip.
- If you prefer to obtain your Canadian licenses online yourself from the Canadian Ministry ($22 each), you will need a credit or debit card and a printer. Click HERE to go to the Canadian Ministry of Natural Resources website.
You MUST print these and BRING THEM WITH YOU on the date of your charter. You will NOT need to purchase an Ourdoors Card for a one-day Canadian fishing license.

- If you do not want to purchase Canadian licenses for your party, all fishing must be done in Michigan waters (1/3 of the lake--see map of Lake St. Clair) only. Please let Captain Don know if you do not wish to fish in Canadian waters.
