Documents needed to fish US waters in Lake Erie

Ryan V

I am planning on taking a boat across to the United States and launching on their side to fish Lake Erie. Does anyone have experience with this? What is needed at the border? Is one allowed to boat over and just fish on the American side as long as they don't anchor? Or does someone need to be notified? Any information is really appreciated! Thanks!
