Flin Flon Manitoba Area Fishing

5 posts in this topic

My dad and I will be heading up to the Flin Flon, Manitoba area to bear hunt over Labor Day week (the second week in September). If we fill our bear tags early, we will have the option to do some fishing for the remainder of the week. I am not familiar with this area at all and have a few general questions.

Does anybody have any experience in this area? We will be targeting primarily walleye, and would not be afraid to travel to find fish as long as we could make it to and from the lodge within a day and still have a reasonable amount of time to fish. What lakes should we look into fishing? Also, is there typically a good walleye bite during that time of year? I should add that we will have access to a small boat from our hunting outfitter.

Any suggestions or advice would be greatly appreciated!

Thanks in advance!

Sounds like you have a fun trip planned. My Dad and some of his buddies hunted Moose up there many, many, many years ago. Google angellshuntandfish that is the fellow they used, he still keeps in touch with Gerry to this day. Should give you a good contact if you need one.

Reed lake is a very popular lake with BIG walleyes not too far from Flin Flon. Ive fished a bunch of times - big lake.... but if the weathers nice it easy to get around. As with all canadian lakes beware of rocks ... maybe follow a boat out or whatever - not the best maps for most lakes, and rocks all over!

If you want you could e-mail dirtkingofmn at yahoo for more info.

    • Not necessarily. Depends on circumstances. That one most definitely would be, though.
    • Maybe she needs to start a foundation..
    • mysnopro all of us that Ice fish feel very badly that this person died and know that we could be next since ice is never safe. I guess we just try and find away to move on and get through these times and some humor is a good way to heal. Not really making fun of someone we don't even really know. Just trying to get passed the hurt.     Jim, I have a lot of relatives that are Native and they are going to bust a gut laughing when I post this on FB to them knowing I ice fish so much.
    • Well, since the real cold is starting and trapping takes a lot of time and effort maybe you could just hold off until next year. Do some more research on the species you want to trap,  the market for their hides and consider the work involved in doing a perfect job of skinning and stretching skins. Then too,   in today's world a guy has to be extremely careful about placing traps where someones cat or dog ends up in the trap. Seeing a nice Brittany crushed and frozen in one of your traps will probably change your mind about the like of a trapper. Many outdoorsmen do some trapping when they are younger and most of them find other pursuits soon enough.  Of course there ARE serious trappers who work at it hard every season. Some thoughts.
    • Not to get technical, but after 1 hr lost person water emergencies are considered recoveries and not rescues...    
    • They say you can't fix stupid, but technically speaking, that is not always correct.
    • So tell me,  did the gather any significant intelligence from her account?  Or was it the same rambling scrambled nonsense she has been babbling at her last several public appearances. Got a quick note from a guy a week or so back who was in the audience at some function where she was speaking and he said "nobody in here can figure out what she's talking about and and the subject seems to change every few minutes. It's a hoot!"
    • nope but very interesting to say the least
    • Have you ever seen this? What do you think?    
    • 4chan did it. Well, not really hacked. The security question for her email was "what elementary school did you attend", which anyone could google because she is famous. So someone just used password recovery and took her account.   The DNC hacking was coordinated phishing, still a simple attack, but not quite as easy to pull off by just any old soul.
