      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 .

Fishing Can on Border without reporting

Recommended Posts

Mossback

Plan to fish in Can without RABC but do not plan to anchor or go ashore. Also will not have ability to telephone before crossing and fishing. Can anyone please tell me how Canada is enforcing or not enforcing this and also any feedback about USA Customs? Will have can licenses but staying in USA and zigzagging into and out of US/Can waters. thx.

On the Rainy river, you can cross into canada while driving your boat, but if you wet a line you're in trouble.

Don't know if that helps you any or not.

Thanks. Not really as I'm more concerned about the Customs folks on both sides of the border more so than the fishing enforcment. I had heard that as long as I didn't achor or get out of the boat I was able to go back and forth and not have to worry about customs reporting.....but at the same time I don't want surprises if I can help it. I know I have bait and beverage restrictions when in Canadian waters just interested in how the Customs folks are seeing things lately?

This topic was discussed a while back but here goes. If you are in Canada without either reporting in prior to entry or without obtaining an RABC for the area you can be fined $1,000 payable on the spot. The area that this popped up was along the NY/Ontario border where fisherman never touched shore. Luckily the individual cited above had a credit card (yes, they take plastic) with him and could pay.

While the chance of getting checked by Canadian Customs on Namakan is slim, it happens. I have an RABC so I do not worry how Canadian Customs is feeling that day. If you really want the skinny, call Canadian Customs and get their view.

You need the RABC if you want to "zigzag" into canada.

Why wouldn't you just spend the $32 for the peace of mind and for a piece of paper that would make any visit by the law go super smooth?

The ability to get the RABC is not convenient for when and where we plan to do the fishing. We plan to do the fishing this weekend so time to get via mail isn't happening and we plan to go up the Gunflint Trail and cannot get the RABC up on the Gunflint that I know of. Would have to continue up the shore to Pigeon River Customs and then back down the shore to Grand Marais and back up the trail again and that is time we just don't have in this case. Wish it were a bit quicker via online like other licensing that is available. Thx for the comments all.

Bring plenty of cash per person, all boat registration/insurance documents and few emergency phone numbers you may need.

If you can fish the weekend going back and forth without a problem you may want to stop at the first casino you come to on the way home because your on a "Hot streak".

Let us know how it went.
