Now that the coldest part of the year is in full swing, it’s time to start thinking about taking a Manitoba winter getaway.

Ice Fishing in Manitoba: The Ultimate Winter Adventure

As temperatures soon begin their yearly free fall, we’ll turn our attention to wintertime fishing opportunities. While we certainly appreciate the warmer seasons, ice fishing in Manitoba is particularly special. Between the (approximately) five months of ice and a wide variety of sport fish, it’s no wonder that many hard-water anglers consider Northern Manitoba a premiere destination for targeting monsters. Whether you’re chasing massive lake trout, ferocious pike, wily walleyes, or various other coveted species, Bakers Narrows Lodge on Lake Athapapuskow is poised to give you an unforgettable wilderness vacation. Besides the fishing, you’ll enjoy seemingly unfettered access to incredible [...]

Vertical Jigging Lake Trout: The Secret Technique

Lake trout is a favorite species for many anglers. From finding them in deep depths, to fighting their incredible strength, lake trout offer a type of challenge that many freshwater anglers don’t get to experience often. For many anglers, this type of fishing is also synonymous with trolling, whether it be a fast troll with a spoon or a slow troll with a jig. However, I’m here to share an entirely different way to experience lake trout fishing. This method is with light gear, light jigs, and a finesse feel, resulting in one of the wildest fishing experiences [...]

Walleye Fishing: Better Bottom Bouncing with Beef Heart

Bottom bouncing is one of the most popular ways to target walleye, but it’s never been a favorite of mine. This is somewhat due to the snagging factor, but mostly because you can troll for a long period of time only to realize that your nightcrawler (or minnow) is completely gone. There is also no visual indicator (vibration) like there is with crank-baits. Therefore you may have trolled for a long period of time with no bait. That’s why I have become obsessed with beef heart. It’s a tougher and more sustainable solution that allows [...]
