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.

    • Yes, its a 110v motor. I would've preferred 12v also but not a big deal since all my 110v outlets can be fed from an inverter so they are powered whether the generator is running or not. I think what you mentioned with the single shaft between them will be the ticket. Looking forward to seeing what you come up with.
    • When I was a kid, we came across a small flock of pigeons along a railroad track while grouse hunting. Shot three and my mom put them in a crockpot with other ingredients and, although I prefer grouse, they weren’t bad. 
    • You should get the 30 amp power cord if you don't have one already. You can use the 30 amp power cord adapter(30 amp female to 15 amp male) for home use. Otherwise when at the campground plug the 30 amp power cord into the 30 amp receptacle.  Now your set for any situation.     Your 20 amp receptacle is protecting the wire from receptacle to breaker panel. Besides running the AC, your running a refrigerator, 110v receptacles, and convertor.  A 16 gauge extension cord is no good.  
    • I had a contractor do my garage floor.  Here is the work order and quoted amount.   Work To Be Done:
      *Epoxy concrete garage floor. (784sq.ft.)
      -­‐Shot blast surface of floor.  (Work  Shop area) -­‐Light acid wash over existing floor, let dry over night.
      -­‐Apply primer coat of commercial grade epoxy. (4mil 650 Armor seal)
      -­‐Apply flakes to primer coat, 100% coverage. (4mil)
      -­‐Shop Vac. Up flakes that didn’t adhere to the floor. (Colors will be gray and red in color)
      -­‐Apply coat of clear commercial grade epoxy.  (4mil)
      -­‐Final coat of Armor seal 650-­‐sealer coat. (2mil)
      -­‐Cure time-­‐ 24 hours for foot traffic and 72 hours for vehicle traffic before use.
      Total Cost: $3,400
    • I did see Menard's had the 0 Degree when I was in there last night.  Not sure what kind of tip connection you may have though?  A last resort if you have a Dremel tool is to try and auger it out with one of their metal tips?  But that may be a long-many Beer day! 🤤
    • I feel like if the power washer works, it's going to be the easiest and most fun way of removing that stuff.     $7 on Amazon.

    • its a ice castle ac unit; i believe the running watts are 1200-1400; nothing else would be running off this outlet; and i believe i purchased a 12guage cord to keep it plugged in to maintain the deep cycle battery and to provide power.   this also raises another question then... am I ok using a standard (16 guage perhaps?) extension cord to connect to the power source at campsites? If not, I should probably replace this...
    • Please don't do this! I have no problem running my camper ac off a 20 amp outlet!
    • You can but it would be much easier if you had some help. Biggest thing is to open the clamps up so it can sit on the boat quicker and give your arms a break.  I swapped out an 18HP for a 35HP and it was like trying to carry a 100lb sack of potatoes. Got it done but heavy. Today I would not even think of doing it myself but back then I was a little more hard headed. I am also assuming its a tiller with no controls to hook up. I would guess it will be around 125lbs according to Yamahas site.
