      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 .

Taking your Son to Canada?

Recommended Posts

fishlips

I am taking my son to Canada this summer for the 2nd time (he's 11). Very rewarding and lots of fun. I just wanted to remind the Dad's out there that if they do plan on going to Canada with their son, they have to have a certified letter signed by a notary public and Mom stating the dates and location for the trip.
After waiting 1 to 2 hours in line at the Canada border - the last thing you want is an unexpected roadblock like this....

Hi, I will be going to Canada this summer and have never been out of thecountry before. What info do I need to have with me? I'm 21 if that makes any difference. Thanks

I've been to Canada several times. I've never had the horror stories you here about having your car stripped from top to bottom and left for you to put back together, or the ever dreaded "human" strip search. If you have nothing to hide and don't act weird, you have no problem. I've heard it's a good idea to bring your birth certificate. We went last year in June and just brought our driver license. Between 6 of us, nobody was hassled or even asked for I.D. If you have any felony arrests or DUIs, you could have a problem. Really, any U.S. criminal record could easily cause you a one way ticket NOT into Canada (if that makes sense). If in doubt, check with the lodge you are headed to. If you aren't staying at a lodge, check with the province you will be in for entry info. It's always better to check ahead than be sorry, sad, and out of money by being denied entry. Good luck and good fishing!

You need to have a valid (not expired) drivers license to get into Canada. I always bring a certified copy of my birth certificate, although its not required.
*Check before leaving to be sure.
To clarify my post above: if you are a guardian bringing a minor into Canada, you need to have a certified/notarized letter stating where you are going and the dates. It needs to be signed in the presence of a notary public by the legal Mother (& father if he's not going) of the child. This is what I was told last year - just be aware of this before you leave.

Is this for real? I am planning on bringing my daughter for the first time this summer.(She will be 16 months at the time) I have to get a notarized statement even if both parents are with? Copy of Birth Certificate won't do? Has anyone else heard this?

      Got some grouse and saw some nice coveys. The biggest was 6 birds but found couple groups of 5. That is always fun.

      we mainly jigged fatheads in front of their mouths. 2 weeks ago also and tried a few different times over 3 days this trip. water is still crazy low so I don't think many boats will be using access. Also tried a couple different plastics and some gulp. Probably ready to go crazy up there soon.  Last year at this time it was really good. Might get there once more before ice time but not sure.

      Been thinking about breaking out the Jiggin Raps, might have to give that a shot. It's been too crowded out there this weekend with MEA going on.

      Sounds good! May an oversized deer with obscenely large antlers find its way to you!

      Well the weather was pretty crappy but the fish were biting...Had to sort through but kept some for dinner. Caught a variety today, eyes,jumbos,crappie and a few smallies... rigging on or next to rocks worked best for us.

      hummm, hadn't heard a thing?

      Good luck. Maybe we will see you Friday. I will let you know how things are looking by us as the weekend goes by.

      I still hope it's double!  I just went over the map with my brother and talked about our options.  We have enough places to go for sure.  It's always fun planning and talking about past hunts. I put out the question to the other two guys about staying in camp vs the house.  We'll see what they decide.  I hauled our "cabin" home from Ely today so we should have plenty of room if they wanna camp.
