Winnipeg "Wigglers" annual event...

Recommended Posts

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!

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)!

    • We have a 6 year old Frigidare gas range and the ignitors on the top burners seem to be controlled by a ghost.  Sometimes one doesn't work, sometimes another.  Any ideas?   Thanks for your time. Tom
    • Make sure the adapter wiring matches the diagram on the cover of your female plug-in on your truck too.  Some use the center pin for backup lights,  yet others it is an auxiliary.  Also make sure that the lobe on the male is lining up with the lobe on the female plug-in too.
    • Trailer, one side, brake and turns dont work, same wire, same bulb filament.  Sounds like a ground problem.  With other tow vehicles its ok.  Are these 7 pin to 4s?  Could be the wrong adapter?  Not all 7 to 4 pins are the same.  Sometimes too that bad ground seeks its path through the hitch.  
    • Wrapping up the ice fishing after tomorrow. I’ve never owned a propane auger before this one and the one I have was bought used. Any storage tips?  
    • They are probably wired differently. I’ve seen this happen.    Actually I had a brand new 2015 Silverado 2500 diesel issued to me as a company vehicle and had issues galore with the factory wiring and the gooseneck trailer I was pulling. It was the biggest nightmare I’ve ever had and it was all with the factory Chevy wiring and integrated brake controller.   
    • Not the best time of year to be laying in the cold and slop under a truck tracking down wires but I have done that as well. Sounds like you then need to track down the yellow wire on the truck and see where it may be corroded and shorted somewhere.  
    • Thanks for the response leech. I purchased an adapter similar to that one with the test lights. Both trailers I tried are almost new and both have LEDS. All work great with Moms SUV and Dads truck. I’m thinking it has to be somthing corroded or a broken wire on the truck end. But figuring that out is out of my reach.
    • Sounds like it may be a bad harness on the trailer it's self.  Get one of these and test the truck again. If all works it's time to fix or replace the trailer harness. I've done both on the 5 different snowmobile trailers I have had over the years. It could just be a bad corroded or shorted rear light fixture on that one side or a shorted wire on that side.   ATB 16687 Truck Trailer Vehicle Plug Tester 7 Round Blade 4 Pin Wire Light Brake RV Tow  
    • I know this forum gets very little people now days but maybe someone could help me out. So I purchased my self a new ( to me) 2000 Silverado 1500 back in August. Be mindful this is my first truck/vehicle. So I tow often ( boat, snowmobiles, atvs, kayak). But the guy I bought it from had said all trailer lighting works great. So I didn’t think much of it. Well a few weeks after I bought it I hooked up a trailer to try the lights.... well. All running lights work perfect, but, no drivers side signal or brake light, passenger side brake light and signal work great. I have tried 3 different trailers and have tried them on 2 other vehicles everything works great. So first thought is Check fuses right? So it was in at a Chevy dealer getting some work done so I had them cheak it out. Fuses all look good and they told me all trailer lights work perfect. So I thought well maybe my 7 pin to 4 flat adapter was bad. I bought a new one of those and tried again. I got one with the test lights on it and sure enough all lights worked great UNTIL I hooked up a trailer. When I did this it kicked out the drivers side brake light and signal on the trailer. At this point I’m feed up with this issue and I’m to worried about getting nailed so I only tow a little ways from home. Anyone have any thoughts on what this could be? I was thinking maybe a bad ground on truck? But how would you know? And also this truck has spent it entire life in Florida until last May so this is the first winter in MN. But it shouldn’t matter since I tried the lights back in the end of August. Thanks a lot!
