Red River Tanks! (pics)

Recommended Posts

Well this report is a bit over due but figured I would offer a report for the Red River in Selkirk Manitoba. I made the trek north to fish with legendary Canadian angler Jay Siemens. Fishing was good, but definitely had more potential than what we found. Fishing a river in the winter can be very challenging but we pushed through and waited for our bites. We targeted the deep water and found the deeper troughs held the bigger fish, and that’s what we were after! Current is way down so it was fairly easy targeting this deep water. 3/8 oz. jigs tipped with frozen shiners were what they wanted but we did catch a few fish on rattle baits like the Lindy Darter in more of the natural colors. Biggest fish on our trip was this 30” tank caught by Jay! Fun trip all in all, I can’t wait to get but up there in March to fish Lake Winnipeg.

Fishing on the lake is outstanding right now... One of the girls in our group landed a 30.75 incher, go 12 pounds easy. Pictures are on our local site. Lots of 4 to 9 pound fish caught, tough to get fish to eat. It's almost extension time if your heading his way in the near future.... Two guys today couldn't break through.

I sent scoot the picture of one of the girls in our group with the 13 pounder... No need to hold it out further... Just a giant. You want to post that one scoot?

    • Probably something like electric cars that was never going to happen!  Only the future will know.
    • scary interesting...
    • Article on WSJ.com today about a European clean meat startup getting nearly $9 million in funding from Merck. With big pharma in the game, is there really any doubt it will be on store shelves soon? The cattle and pork industry better come up with a "pink slime" type of name for this, or they can kiss their herds goodbye. Franken Meat? https://www.wsj.com/articles/startup-producing-cell-grown-meat-raises-new-funding-1531738800?mod=hp_lista_pos4
    • sorry, quoted wrong post.   If one quotes a quote, the system messes up the attribution
    • Water that doesn't come out of a plastic bottle.
    • That's YOUR opinion.    Just remember, everything is fine, in moderation.
    • I do it, have experience with both homers and shooters. I am not a die hard as I was a few years ago but will get back into more when I get a new pup here in the near future.   The birds are not to bad to care for just need food and water. My experience and most troubles have been trying to keep critters out of the pigeon loft. Mink etc like to wreak havoc and it sucks when you lose all your birds to a stupid rodent. Especially the homers after you put in all the work to get them coming back. I haven't had any issues keeping birds at home by the dogs. Best part with the homers is if I train away from home, most times the birds are back home in the loft before I get back lol.   As for working the dog, you probably want to invest in a bird launcher as well especially since your dogs a pointer. Not sure how steady your dog will be or what kind of prey drive it will have. Hopefully you letting it chase birds already didnt cause any issues. I would just slowly introduce them to the pigeons. Might even start with just clipping some flight feathers and throw it in an open area and see how your dog reacts and go from there.   It should point naturally but just use the launcher to steady the dog up. Just look up methods with a check cord etc. when using the launcher. If you want them steady to flush or steady to shot that's up to you but that's way down the road yet. Some of that  pointing should come natural but with this dog being a little older you never know what your gonna get but never too late to start either I guess.    good luck
