So you’ve seen those huts on the frozen rivers and lakes several times passing by and always wondered how much fun would it be? Ice-fishing is fun, but it is even more fun in the wilderness. A recent video from Explore Northern Fishing, a group of guys from Manitoba, shows the beauty of ice fishing in the wilderness of the true fishermen. They finish their outing with a feisty 21” rainbow trout and with the season in full swing we are looking for more catches from these guys.
As for yourself, if you are visiting Manitoba in the winter months, and looking for ice fishing places, here are 5 spots to consider:
- Lake Dauphin – rich in walleye
- Big Whiteshell Lake, if you are interested in northern pike. The lake is located in Whiteshell Provincial Park.
- South basin of Mantioba Lake for some perch.
- Paterson Lake (north of Oakburn) for brown and rainbow trout.
- Clearwater Lake, located in the Clearwater Provincial Park, for some lake trout.
Stay warm and fish-on!
