      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 .

Canada Lake Finder?

Recommended Posts

Hey guys, we have a trip scheduled to Dobie Lake through L&M Outfitters (out of Dryden) for the 15th-21st. It's 142 miles north/northwest/northeast (not sure) of Dryden, and I was just wondering if anyone knew of a good way to find it on a map of Ontario, so we could estimate the weather/ice conditions. Thanks for the help!

Did you try Google Earth yet? That won't help you with the conditions, but there are web cams in Sioux Lookout that will assist you with your estimations.

Hello, Be a pleasure meeting you hopefully soon.. We had a great day to get ice moving. Dryden was warm and sunny all day. Wabigoon is breaking up in our bay, the rest of the lake should be out in acouple of days or atleast by the weekend at the very latest. As for Dobie lake. It is up about 30 miles west of Pickle Lake. Will be alittle longer before that ice goes out up in that area however things are changing fast now. Ill keep you posted as we get closer. The good news is the cabin is near the river flowage of the lake which means many times we are able to get into Dobie's Cabin even when rest of the lake is iced up because of the river current.

Oh, didn't realize you guys had an account on here! I'm Tyler, in case you didn't realize. On that note though, from the few references you gave me, I gathered that almost all their fishing was done at the river entrance on the north side of the lake? Will we be able to get to that?

Yesterday was another good day. Much of Wabigoon went out considering the warm temps/south winds and sun most of the day, even had acouple rain showers pass through. This morning is warm but foggy.

As to your question. Depends on ice. The south river is just as good as the north, just not as big. Ill keep you posted when we know more.

Thanks for the updates! I've been looking at the weather reports for Pickle Lake, and it looks like the next ten days will range from the upper 30s to maybe lower 60s, with it mostly staying around the upper 40s/lower 50s, with some rain? That should bode well for taking care of the ice I would think. Looking forward to your next update!

Another good one is to go to info@ontariosunsetcountry.ca you can get a brochure booklet and a map of ontario with all the lakes there. Its a really good detail on the map and its free.
