Winnipeg "Wigglers" annual event...

4 posts in this topic

I few years ago, I posted a report on this thread. It pertained to an all female, Winnipeg based angling fraternity who call themselves the "Winnipeg Wigglers". Today, June 7th, 2008 marks this interesting and dedicated groups umpteenth

spring fishing event on the banks of Manitoba's Red River.

The day is spent by this group of fun loving ladies, enjoying a day away from daily life rituals and more importantly, their spouses! They range in age from late teens all the way up to early nineties! That's right early nineties, for Lillian Snyder one of the groups founding members (the Wigglers was founded way back in the 1950's!) and is still actively partiscipating in the fun & frolics.

Here's the ladies as they appear unloading their gear & tackle from the chartered bus. Notice the ingenuity of using those handy little two wheel carts that are commonly used for shopping!


All loaded up and headed for the river bank!


The ladies as they appear settled in along the river bank for a fun filled day of fishing!




Here's Lillian showing off the special T-Shirt her fellow "Wigglers" had printed up for her. It was their way of saying thanks for everything. Lillian recently celebrated her 91st. birthday.

That is so cool! Looks like they had a great time. Did they catch any fish?

I decided that it would be worth adding these additional pic's.

Pictures are indeed worth a 1000 words...

Here's another great bit of inginuity....the ladies not only use those little shopping carts for hauling "all" their equipment. They are also used for transporting their catch over to the officials station in order to have their catch recorded!



The Red River is world renowned mainly for two major species, the mighty channel cat and those massive green back walleye. However a multitude of species also lay claims to calling the the Red home. In early June, freshwater drum AKA "sheephead" as it is more widely recognized by, really makes its present known!



Every crowd has its share of comic's and the Winnipeg Wigglers are no exception. Here's one of them now displaying her catch. (well she tried to convinced me that she caught them)!


Sometimes a day out can take on a whole new meaning. This gal seems to off somewhere else at the momment...

    • It's an ignorant question asked again for some ignorant reason.  You're voting Hillary and I'm voting Trump.  No need to get so mad.  I have no idea, just like you, if the poles are correct or not. However even someone who feels the need to ask the same ignorant question for a second time realizes Hillary or Trump will be the next President.
    • You can't even follow a conversation in your own head. According to has always been a zero sum game. Right now if the polls are correct, it is not either Trump or Hillary.....a vote for Trump or Johnson are completely the same.....neither are going to win. So once again .....please choose......either are the polls wrong, or are you going to waste your vote? It is a simple question asked for the second time.
    • Keep that knee on the ground.  I have never once said anything about the poles whether Trump was up or down.  So it's either Trump or Hillary.  Have to choose one.....sorry you're mad bro.
    • Yep, we are now at the point that Del and D2E have to say either the poles are wrong, or not vote for Trump. Because according to their own logic.....if the poles are would be a wasted vote. So what will it be? Have to choose one........
    • Heavens no.  Del doesn't believe in wasting his vote.
    • Not to worry LRG.  You can pick on me all you want.  I guess I'm in the same thought pattern as Getanet,  a house is not a priority now.  I know quality cost $$$.  One thing that I think is crazy is the amount of new houses that are available for sale.  At what point does the market saturate?  How many of these houses financed for 120 months will be repoed or sold at a loss?  A fishouse in every driveway?  Seems like it.   I wonder how much longer some of these builders will be around?
    • That's my description of our O line... I have faith in our coaching system that they will revamp their scheme...  This was like a fall apart game, it was bound to happen. Come on guys, get it together!!!! We will demolish the bears. 
    • Looking at getting the pro xt cabin. ..   Do the seats stay in place or do you have to remove them and put in the sled to get down to the 20.5" packed measurement?    How well do the square tubes work when cold?
