      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 .

Have been to Rainy for a week the last 3 years, staying at Island View. We are planning on going into Canada for the first time and was wondering if a a "remote border pass" is required? If required how do we get one? Can we buy a Canadaian fishing license in Mn.?

you can get a license by phone 1-800-667-1940 and to get a border pass type in (canpass remote border pass) on yahoo seach . It takes time to get it so be sure to send for it long before your trip

Ok, so if I'm just going into Canada, by boat, to fish for a day, do I need to have one? Seems real expensive for a daythanks again

If you're going for a day the easiest would be to trailer your boat across and land on the Ontario side. The only cost then is the bridge toll providing you land at a public access.

Last time I bought one it was $30. You can put your entire family on one pass.

You do have another option to getting the RABC for just one day. If you can pick your day (and it sounds like you can) drive your boat into the CANOPS store at Fort Francis and call into the Canadian Border Services and they will send an agent out to meet you at the dock (this is in lieu of the RABC and there is no charge for this service). At the CANOPS store you can buy bait and required licenses. It is probably 12-13 miles by water from Island View which isn't bad if the wind is down. Remember, if you choose to cross into Canada that when you return that you will also need to check in with the U.S. officials as well. There is a video booth at Bowman's landing you can use to check in if you opt not to get an I68 permit (the US version of the RABC - $16). While the border issues seem to be a hassle, the reality of the situation is that both the Canadian and US government are very accomadating as long as we all do our part to follow the rules. Let's hope it stays that way.
