      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 .

How bad off are you if they ask is my concern.
I don't intend to bring it up....
HaHa
Anyone had them ask or pull you aside and go through your stuff and check you and find out ?
I've heard they send the whole party back.
Even if you have person with offense stay at motel until someone can come and get them they still won't allow others to go anymore ?
Just trying to find out the skinny...?

.I dont have any first hand experience but make sure the vehicles that you take are not registered to those " big bad criminals " that the canadians dont want in thier country!

If they ask you and you tell them yes,,well you aint gettin in. So your better off saying no!

I personally would take the money from those inflated prices and apply it to a state side trip. Im sure you could go first class here for the same amount , and nobody is going to say no to you over a DUI.

I will never go into Canada again ! The government there is anti gun, money grubbing, wanna be European socialists that reign under the protection of the GREATEST COUNTRY IN THE WHOLE WORLD!!!!!!! smile.gif

Yah I kinda agree with you but we fell into a honey of a deal.
The trip Is EXTREMELY CHEAP.
When I say cheap I mean cheap.
I can't rent a motel room for 6 days in Minnesota for what the whole trip everything included is costing me up there.
Don't worry I am not a anti minnesota fisherman.
I am part owner in a family owned cabin in Minnesota and love fishing our lakes...

redmnfisher this was covered this winter. I think it was in the open water forum. There was a permit you could buy. It wasnt something you would want to plan ahead for.

Surface tension.
When you say this is something you don't plan ahead for do you mean that you can do this at the border if you get checked ?

I goofed, I meant to say plan ahead. It's wishy washy at the border. This is what I read. If you can find the post it will cover everything. Good Luck,ST.

Whatever you do, if they ask you if you have a dui, dont lie, that may land you in jail if they do a check and find out you were hiding something. I went across this past march with my 2 brothers, all of us have had dui's, from 20 yrs back to 9 yrs. breezed right threw,however we made arrangements on the us side too in case we had some trouble. depending on the age and severity of the offence there is a fee you could pay at the border to an immagrations officer 200 CN, that may or may not get you threw. its up to them to decide your fate,

I've been in and out of Canada at least 25 times in the past ten years and never been asked if I had a DWI. I have heard that if you are not the one driving it's not as big a deal if they do ask. I've also heard that for a price you can get a permit even if you have had a DWI in the past. You can probably find out by calling ahead.

Good Luck

This is something to definately check out in advance. I am not sure of the details but you can buy a permit? or something that will let you in without any trouble. If they run your drivers license and find a troubled past (according to them) they can charge you somewhere around $125-$150 to let you in OR they can deny you entry. I had some acquaintances run into major hassles last winter. I would contact the Canadian border crossing people. Good luck.

I wouldn't lie. They can run a check on you as easy as a state patrol officer. Very very good chance they won't let you in if you have a DUI on your record. You can apply for a pardon. That's what the $200 can is for. It's a processing fee. $ over the table instead of under. The good news is when I was researching getting a remote border pass I was told that sometime in June a new law will go into effect that allows them to go back only 10 years and older Dwi's won't ban you from giving them your hard earned US $. I have to agree with some of the other posts. The fishing can be fantastic but they hide behind their so called conservation. They say they are protecting their resources. But if you look at their regs. Every one of them allows you a chance to fish and hunt there if you spend significant US $. If you can get a cheap trip take it. But I'll think long and hard before going back. I have enough experence to know about the various fishing peaks on this side of the line.

So are you guys talking about the driver's record or anyone with you? If the driver has a clean record and using his/her vehicle would they ever ask for anyone elses license. What if you didn't have a driver's license, can they deny you entry. What are the odds they will ask if you have a dui. What about if you had an accident? Any more info would be appriciated going there next week Monday. Is any time of the day better to go accross?
