      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 .

Research has shown that Atikoken is very low on Leeches. Does anyone know a Fort Francis bait shop I should contact regarding reserving / buying 2 Lbs. of leeches?

Thanks, CLoma

If you are going to Atikoken go to Rainy Lake Baits on Hwy 11. They are located on the east side of town just after you go through town and make the right onto Hwy 11. They are directly adjacent to Raniy Lake. Leeches were selling for about $25 CA per pound in early July.

I've talked to several resort owners in Canada, and they're not impressed by the size or hardiness of the Canadian leech. Also, the going price is reportedly $45 wholesale, $60 retail, so bring the deed for your home so you can mortgage it for the two pounds. For that price I'd recommend Gulp Crawlers or leeches, Power Bait leeches, or Slimers.

Thank You! I have 2# sleeches reserved ( if they come in ) at Rainy Lake Sport..... Report forthcoming. ooo.gif

Think Crawlers are going to be available?

Any one have bait tricks for catching minnows in seins? Is this legal in the park, eh??

Plastics, here I come.

See youz fellers' in a week. Hope the Superior get together goes real well.

Later, -CLoma

Loma I think you can bring crawlers as long as they are in paper bedding unless something changes recently.

Crawlers are alright in bedding, not dirt. And I believe that a nonresident is not allowed to trap bait in Ontario, but you can check the Ontario regs online for sure.

Good Luck!!

You are correct. A non resident is not allowed to trap bait in canada using a sein. I believe a non resident can use a trap but may only cath several doz. Not sure about in the park though. Plus, who want to lug a minnow trap around in a canoe.

I take a small folding minnow trap along on Canoe trips. Set it out over night and all the bait a guy needs. Minnows, crawfish and even some leeches at times. Some of the best BWCA $ I ever spent. It weighs less than a pound and folds up the size of a frisby.
