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.

    • Britt: Do you know where to view the Ruffed Grouse Society Invitational Hunt in Grand Rapids MN annual harvest statistics by year? Thanks.
    • Watch their interference disappear when you shut your marcum off 🤨
    • Rick was going to start that topic right after this one slowed down! 😅
    • Don't be fooled by stainless cables. Take proper care of them and change them every few years.Do your pivots every couple years too.
    • Might as well get augers in on this too!
    • Just counted 14 of them under and on my feeder. Cardinals, Nuthatches, Juncos, and asst sparrows came in and they chased them all away. It's like one stands guard and chase everything off. Sorry guys, time has come to start thinning the blue rats out!

    • nope..........havent graduated to posting meme's yet!!!!!!!!!
    • Have a marcum LX9 also use a couple Lowrance units. After using them side by side there are features I like on both but just comparing sonar units I'd have to say that my lowrance units squeak out a win for me over the Marcum. Both are very close to the same performance. The Marcum is much easier to just plop and fish where the lowrance units you have to dial in for each situation. I've never been a traditional flasher guy and never see the need to after using a graph.
    • Yep put mine away this past Saturday. I haven't used it since August. I wanted to park my truck inside instead and I would rather hunt then fish anyways...
