      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 weather reports

Recommended Posts

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.

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.

    • I think we are both kinda right, I'm pretty positive that he saddled up and rode out of Sillytown at that time to never return. But he did come back to the cooking forum, a quick search confirms that. And when in somebodies house, ya gotta play by their rules. You have to adjust, just like in life. I have had the banhammer brought down on me a couple times and  have been a moderator. That takes some talent. lol I've said it before, Sillytown is the only place in my life that I deal with politics. I find it entertaining in the context here. There is not a single political post by me on my Facebook feed. You should lighten up a tad Del, then maybe I and others wouldn't pick on you as much. Enjoy the good eats coming up next week Del.

    • 3k plus or minus a couple hundred depending on engine size I think
    • They are kinda neat.  Id like to see someone try and pull a smaller wheelhouse with one.  Anyone know prices?
    • You heard wrong and he left on his own, multiple times....
    • I have been adding a little equipment to my butchering hobby every year and this year I am going to add a bandsaw to the mix.  On the WWW there are a bunch of them in the 280-450 range that all look like rebranded clones of each other.    Then, from there it looks like the next jump is the Rikon/grizzly model that has bearing guides, a better blade and it looks like a better fit and finish for 650- 800 depending on the retailer. Does anyone have any experience with either of these types or anything similar?  I'm not going to spend the dollars to get a commercial model.     
    • Ya its been a long day. I don't know if I'm a puss or what but I havent even been able to eat today. Never lost a deer before. Hopefully never again. Worst part is I don't know what went wrong I would make exact same shot again.
    • Awesome thank you  
    • Sorry Charlie.  Way I heard it, the lords didn't like him having a plug for his sight in his .sig so he moved on, like many of the cooking folks did to another place.   I am there too, so come on over....  Just leave the politics here.  
    • Gee Dave, you are sure a  believer in the overprotective government.   I bet you cook all your eggs hard, and your chicken to 165.  You need to read up on pasteurization... It's a time and temperature thing.
