Canada weather reports

8 posts in this topic

So I checked the weather channel weather for late this week/next week where we are going in Manitoba. Cloudy/rainy every day. then I checked weatherofficedotgcdotca and it said sunny every day. C'mon, how can they be that far off? If that doesnt just make you lose your confidence in the weather guys, I dont know what does. confused

I ran the Canadian weather last week for Ignace Ontario which is about 50 miles from our camp and they predicted highs in the upper 60s to low 70s. We barely made 50 on Friday and never got to 40 Saturday. They also called out light winds all weekend. We had 4 foot rollers Saturday due to the 40 MPH gusts and steady 30+ north winds.

I wish I could be a Meteorologist where you guess most of the time and are wrong most of that and still get paid!

Hey all...I agree!

I am heading up next week - and the reports vary greatly even within cities that are only about 30 to 40 miles away as the crow flies.

If you are ever going around the angle inlet or LOW area - the bay store camp (hope I can mention that here?) HSOforum has a great weather report thread on the bottom of its home page. It gives a 5 day report - and when you click on the details it gives the wind mph, direction, precipitation, pressure and more with a detailed report in 3 hour increments. It is a nice site and I have found it to be more accurate than other sites.

This weather is something else this year. Suppose to be summer time.... Just north of Lac Seul snowed hard today. NW Ontario must not agree with global warming.

yeah...we are heading up to Ontario on the 10th...calling for temps in the low 60s for highs - and this will be mid-June!

I dont think they have even had temps in the 70s yet!

We were up this past weekend and were told it was the nicest stretch of weather by a longshot. Oaks aren't fully leafed out yet.

Yup - we just got back from manitou. It was around 80 on Saturday and Sunday. Water temp went from 53 to 63 to 65 and even warmer in some spots. Had a great week of weather and a very nice time.

    • They can sure humble a person. 
    • Well I tagged out this morning.   I got out later as my daughter and her family were over so I headed out after breakfast.  I drove by the field to see if there were any there so I could plan a route to the blind.   There was a fl8cknof Jake's and a flock of longbeards.  I quickly snuck into my blind and stuck a funky chicken decoy out.  As I was stepping into the blind the Jake's start clearing the trees between the blind and them.  They worked around out front a ways.  Suddenly I see 2 toms fly into the field.  The jakes immediately charged the toms driving them out of the field.  After that the jakes saw the funky chicked and headed over to check it out.  With the toms gone and time dlipoung away I picked one out and shot him at 30 yards.  He'll taste good on rhe grill this summer.   Got in the blind at 10 am and was done by 10:15 am.  It's been a long season. 
    • Fun in the yak today in SE SD caught and released a bunch of these today:
    • How can a bird with brain the size of a pea out smart us!
    • The 2 lakes i bass fish have slowed way down the last week.   A swim-bait ripple shad was hot ticket for a while but that is just a pike attraction right now.  Been switching to a Senko and helped a little.   Pads are coming up fast now and we should see a spike up in activity soon.  Cannot wait to throw the frogs soon as that is the biggest rush watching those eruptions in the water!!   Thanks for posting as i found it to be quite slower than usual also.   Which means i need to find better ammo during those times.  
    • Tomorrow we will be back at it
    • I am giving it a last hurrah tomorrow. Sorry I haven't been able to check in here much. I have hardly been able to get out this year between work, a baby at home, and a recent trip out of the country for a relative's wedding.    Last time I was out I had a real nice Tom within 20 yards after a very long standoff. I think I screwed it up by rushing myself a bit. He stood around 50 yards out literally strutting back and forth like someone had drawn a line in the mud that he wouldnt cross. He must not have wanted to fight with the strutter decoy we had out. He did that for 45 minutes to an hour and finally came our way after a hen led him towards us.    They came past us but were outside the decoys and angling slightly away from us. Then the tom turned and started angling straight at the strutter decoy. That meant he was basically quartering to me and when he was 15-17 yards or so out I drew because in the back of my mind i was thinking if he kept moving that way and past the decoy he would quickly be in a spot I would have had no shot.   In hindsight I think he had realized (once he got close enough) that he would have been able to whoop up on the decoy and he was coming in to do just that. I probably should have waited to see, but I didn't and right as I hit the backwall of my draw his head popped up on alert and he turned around and walked straight away knowing something wasn't quite right. I could have easily shot at him at 20 yards but he was facing away and I just didn't feel comfortable. I am confident I would have hit my mark but I didn't like shooting at something walking straight away when I am not experienced with bow hunting turkeys.   I know some people will say that I should have shot, but I have been bow hunting for awhile and never wounded anything because of a poor shot or poor shot selection, so I didn't want that to be a first. Hopefully I get a shot at redemption tomorrow!
    • Way to go team!! I sure took the avg score down with my jake
    • nice story, fishing has a way of easing the pains we have. even when we hurt like crazy when done for the day we are looking forward to the next outing.
    • way to go, guys yep, the toms not about to give up even though its close to closing time have seen several strutters the past couple weeks and heard gobbles yesterday while fishing
