Fishing in Northern Manitoba is an unforgettable experience on which all outdoor enthusiasts should embark, no matter the season. Every year, anglers from all over North America and abroad come to our secluded neck of the woods to try their hand at landing that “once in a lifetime” Mammoth Lake Trout or that monstrous Northern Pike plus a multitude of walleye or Burbot —among other species. But just like any achievement worth accomplishing, landing a personal best is going to take some work! Heck, even if you’ve spent most of your life skipping between the lakes around Flin Flon, you may want to take a few pointers from a Manitoba fishing guide at Bakers Narrows Lodge

3 Reasons to Hire a Manitoba Fishing Guide

The methods and techniques leading to a successful outing one day can have an entirely different effect on the next. And fishing in an unfamiliar environment will only compound the challenge. Combining your determination and desire with the professionalism and knowledge of a Bakers Narrows Manitoba fishing guide will give you the edge you need to maximize each outing and shorten your learning curve. Without further ado, here are three reasons to hire a fishing guide.

Less Gear to Haul

Hauling around the tackle and other equipment is a cornerstone of almost every fishing adventure, so much so that we sometimes forget we’re doing it! Enlisting the aid of one of our Manitoba fishing guides will not only help you land fish, but it will also save you from the unknown conditions associated with fishing in new areas. As creatures of habit, it’s easy to understand why some anglers may want to bring their entire arsenal of spinners, cranks, and ploppers, but it’s much easier to focus your attention on fishing when your guide has everything you need.

All They Do is Catch Fish

Remember, it’s fishing, not catching; however, our guide’s job is to put you on fish, and they take it seriously. Try to remember bringing one of your friends to your honey hole. You probably told them a story about how you hammered fish all day before inviting them on your next outing. When you’re both in the boat, you spend so much time trying to recreate that epic day, only to fall short and face disappointment. Your guide will assume the responsibility for finding the fish; all you need to do is perform on the opportunities you have!

Learn from a Manitoba Master

What we believe to be true about fishing stems from trial and error. It’s critical to realize that you still have a lot to learn about fishing in Manitoba and welcome the opportunity. No one takes up fishing because it’s easy, and our trusty guides will teach you some of the best practices that you can likely apply to your home turf. Asking questions and taking notes is the best way to earn your stripes, and having an open mind will further strengthen your understanding. Those who pay special attention to the small details will reap the best results.
