Another Manitoba Fishing Paradise...

Recommended Posts

The dates are set, the destination has been established, now we just have to remain calm until the 29th of March rolls around! I along with eleven others have recently secured reservations at Peterson's Reed Lake Resort. Located seven hours drive north of the City of Winnipeg, Reed Lake is notorious for trophy lake trout and gators.

Although lakers will be the groups main focus, I think it will be hard if not imposible to overlook the lakes pike fishery. Reed is loaded with the critters and they grow to mamoth proportions! Last year some friends of mine headed up to Peterson's (late March) for some gator hunting....the end results were absolutely incredible! Six guys, twenty six trophy pike later, with the largest measuring a mind blowing fifty two inches equals one hell 'ava trip!

In the mean or until March 29th rolls around, I guess we'll just have to keep ourselves occupied by pursuing trophy 'eyes on Lake Winnipeg! wink.gif

I have fished Reed dozens of times on soft water and cannot tell you how jealous I am you are going there in the winter! You will have to give us an updated on how trip goes for you.

I'll be more than happy to post a report (pic's included) at the conclusion of this potentially incredible trip! It's important to note that there will be a total of twelve hard core's on this trip and each and everyone is as keen if not more keen than I am about the prospects! The fact that some of the guys hale from the U.S. and the rest are Canucks we thought it would be appropriate to give the excursion a name. It will be known as the "Can-Am laker & gator express"! Clearly I can see this one developing quickly into an annual event!

This is what's awaiting us. Whited out the faces because I didn't ask my buds if I could post their photos. Anyway, it's the fish that matter.

We made the trip indeed. The laker bite was really tough with only 5 being caught in 2 hard days of fishing. The northerns came through for part of our group with several over the magic 40 inches being caught....longest was 44. A great trip none the less. Snow and slush could've been better but I've seen it plenty worse. Looks like we're going again in 2008.

    • Lots of reality here.   Seriously, if we truly want to wipe out CWD, all deer/elk farms need to be wiped out, all natural deer scents need to be banned and taken out of production and every single deer/elk anywhere near a positive CWD infected area needs to be wiped out. Every last one of them! And then, all deer that are found in these areas for at least 10 years need to be destroyed.    Is this a sacrifice the state is willing to make? Not a chance! So we fall to the only other option, we adapt and live with it. 
    • It's always fun to rig up your own custom stuff then paying a bunch of money for things that may not work as well.  Looks like it should do the trick for you!  🙂
    • Dude, do you know how to use the emoticons?  It's always good to use one of these when making a Joke!  🙂 😀 😅 😂  😉
    • All deer in SE MN need to be wiped out.  90% herd reduction isn't going to stop the disease.  It is wreckless and stupid to do any less.  The whole state herd is going to go in the toilet if the SE guys don't get on the triggers and get their situation under control.  This talk of us vs the deer farms is a stupid smokescreen designed to try to take the focus off private land owners that don't want to cooperate with the mitigation plan.       Anything less will set the stage for CWD to roll hard to the north and get into the big woods where there will be zero chance of ever finding every deer.   
    • Gettin er done.    I have to take the "T" that the transducer pipe goes through to work so I can open the ID so the pipe can slide freely. 
    • I have a couple Garmin units for my boat. I'm going to also use one for ice fishing. Got it powered up and started playing with the colors schemes I'd like to use. The only one I like so far is with a blue background. But what I found that I like better is the black background the humminbird uses. Maybe Garmin could do an update to add a black mode. Lol. 
    • How do you keep those solid whole covers from freezing over the hole?
    • The ant moat idea seems interesting.  Go to a second had store or a Goodwill type of place and see if you can find a Bundt pan.  Use that and see how things work out.  
    • Could you be a little more specific on this cocktail timing deal? Size matters! 😏  
    • I have been doing whole prime rib on a weber grill since I was 20 years old and they cost 2.99 lb at the long ago defunct Country Club Market in St. Paul. I put the coals on each side for indirect heat and add salt and pepper and garlic. For the garlic I put the fat side up and take a knife and put holes into the fat down to meat. In each hole I put a garlic clove. I don't add any pellets or wood chips for smoke. I just want to taste that beef cooked in owns fat with a few spices but go ahead and add some smoke to it if that is what you want.
