      Members Only Fluid Forum View   08/08/2017

      Fluid forum view allows members only to get right to the meat of this community; the topics. You can toggle between your preferred forum view just below to the left on the main forum entrance. You will see three icons. Try them out and see what you prefer.   Fluid view allows you, if you are a signed up member, to see the newest topic posts in either all forums (select none or all) or in just your favorite forums (select the ones you want to see when you come to Fishing Minnesota). It keeps and in real time with respect to Topic posts and lets YOU SELECT YOUR FAVORITE FORUMS. It can make things fun and easy. This is especially true for less experienced visitors raised on social media. If you, as a members want more specific topics, you can even select a single forum to view. Let us take a look at fluid view in action. We will then break it down and explain how it works in more detail.   The video shows the topic list and the forum filter box. As you can see, it is easy to change the topic list by changing the selected forums. This view replaces the traditional list of categories and forums.   Of course, members only can change the view to better suit your way of browsing.   You will notice a “grid” option. We have moved the grid forum theme setting into the main forum settings. This makes it an option for members only to choose. This screenshot also shows the removal of the forum breadcrumb in fluid view mode. Fluid view remembers your last forum selection so you don’t lose your place when you go back to the listing. The benefit of this feature is easy to see. It removes a potential barrier of entry for members only. It puts the spotlight on topics themselves, and not the hierarchical forum structure. You as a member will enjoy viewing many forums at once and switching between them without leaving the page. We hope that fluid view, the new functionality is an asset that you enjoy .

Tonight's International Falls artical Senator Colmen

Just a day after new rules for entering the United States were implemented, U.S. Sen. Norm Coleman and International Falls Mayor Shawn Mason checked the process themselves.

Coleman and Mason drove into the Falls Friday from Fort Frances and experienced quick passage into the U.S. after answering a few questions by a Customs inspector.

The senator described the process as “painless.”

Effective Thursday, entrants to the U.S. are being asked to provide acceptable documents to prove citizenship. Among those acceptable documents are a passport, passport card, or NEXUS card. Without one of those documents, two documents, such as a driver’s license and birth certificate, may be used until June 2009. At that time, passports or NEXUS cards are expected to be required.

Passports are the ultimate proof of citizenship.

On Friday, the state department began accepting applications for passport cards. Passport cards are wallet-sized IDs that cost about half the cost of a regular passport.

Chief Inspector Marty Eide said Thursday U.S. citizens may apply online now for a NEXUS card or at a sign-up center expected to be operational around March.

NEXUS cards allow pre-screened travelers to enter a designated lane at the border station and swipe their NEXUS card, which will be read electronically. The NEXUS card will also alleviate the need for an I-68 card, which allows pre-screened U.S. citizens to enter the U.S. by boat and declaring entry by calling into a border station.

Eide acknowledged the physical constraints of the station’s placement on the bridge, but said the NEXUS program would still likely move traffic through the process more quickly.

Canada is also expected to implement the NEXUS program, he said.

Meanwhile, Eide told Mason and Coleman that the agency has implemented a public education period. Inspectors provide pamphlets about the requirements to enter the U.S. and confirm citizenship.

Already, inspectors are reporting 80-90 percent compliance, he said.

are some good things happening in northern Minnesota, and that makes me happy,” Coleman said.

Coleman said the issue has not been about requiring secure documents to enter the U.S. Instead, he said it’s about the cost of those documents and having a usable system in place before implementing requirements.

Eide reminded travelers to have their documents out of wallets and purses when approaching the station to allow inspectors to do their jobs as quickly as possible.

HI,

LAST NIGHT AT A RAINY LAKE SPORTFISHING CLUB MEETING, ONE MEMBER (HEAD OF THE BORDER PATROL) SAID THE NEXUS CARD WILL NOT TAKE THE PLACE OF THE REMOTE BORDER CROSSING PERMIT, SO YOU STILL HAVE TO OBTAIN ONE OF THOSE EACH YEAR FROM CANADIAN CUSTOMS.

SIMCERELY,

FISHMEISTER

      Headed up this weekend for the first trip of the fall.  Thinking about fishing the lake with all the good reports from there, but has anybody been up to Clementson, Frontier or Birchdale  areas recently that could give a report?  Thanks.

      Thanks for chiming in and sharing how the river has been treating you lately. They sure are fun to catch. I am hoping to get out again this weekend for some more smallie action. Hopefully they are still near where I was able to find them last weekend....

      I fish pretty much exclusively above the Sartell dam.  I normally try to hit it 2-3 times per week.  Over the last 3 weeks, I thought the fishing was down right ridiculous(even with the crazy high water) at times, 12-20 fish in a hour or two before sunset.  I found them right up on the bank, and of course in slower moving water.  There are a few spots north of the dam that are great places for high water.  Some larger areas where the water can swirl around and create backwash.  In fact, I'll point my boat down right and put spot lock on, because the water is flowing back up river, and just cast parallel with the bank.  Most of the time I'll throw a Scatter rap, then when I see a fish chasing bait, I'll throw out a wacky rig.   I went out last weekend to a spot I've been hitting, and the fish have diminished big time.  Caught 6 in a couple hours.  Then I went out last night, and caught one walleye.   So, with that in mind I figured they had to of gone to the deeper rock piles.  And, sure enough, I caught 2 just before sunset, then I headed in.   If you have SI, just drive down or up river and look for large groups of rock piles.  Go up river from them, and try and do a controlled drift over the rocks.  I normally use a jig and a tube.  And there's no mistaken them when they hit.   Even a few eyes mixed in every once in a while.

      Ditto. I switched to a 3 inch shell in #2 shot. I missed a few wood ducks this morning but got one teal. Not bad for the WMA I was hunting. 2 ducks would be great. 3-4 like you won the lottery. Saw plenty of action but it was fast moving wood ducks out of range. Geese never showed. And you can't shoot trumpeter swans! There were plenty of those. Let my boy sleep in this morning. Tomorrow we'll hit the more pressured lake. I saw at least one person setting up on it this morning on my drive to the WMA. The nice thing about that - when you're almost certain you'll be the only one there - is that you can roll in not long before shooting time if it doesn't take you long to set up.

      Hey Moose , sounds like some tough shooting as of late for you at those duckies . Just curious as to what choke you are using ?
