Great morning of fishing. Very little windy, catching on jigs and salted minnows, at 18-20 feet. Catch our limit in 90 minutes. Mite be the last week of fishing for our Bomber border so I would think we will be out there as much as possible.

Nice cool day in Kenora. Light jacket weather. Walleye's are crazy at the month of the channel. Lots of snags, now we separate the men from the boys. Is it a snag or a bite. lol.

Went to Pinefalls yesterday with my brother-in-law. Very busy at the boat launch. A number of Americans, and lots of people fishing off the dock which is a no, no. Winds was very strong and he only has a 16' Lund SSV. Started out with bottom bouncers, and night crawlers. Fished a couple humps, with salted minnows and 1/2oz jigs. The fishing was steady, but not great. A couple of monster's, 30" plus. 30 minute wait to load the boat. Manitoba Conservation checking vehicles and boats. Nailed a number of people for violations.

Back in Kenora for the weekend. Today was a beautiful day, and a great day of fishing. Went to Pickerel Rock and fished with a 3/8 jig and salted minnows. Steady good size walleye's all day. Looks like we mite get a couple  more weeks in before having to shut it down.

Big morning of fishing. Ice isn't very thick, so just fishing around our dock. Pretty much one after the other on salted minnows and 1/4oz jigs.

Still no ice fishing in Kenora yet. However, the fishing around our dock is still pretty hot. The kids are catching a lot of small mouth bass and perch, and few walleye everyday.

Another amazing day at the lake. Still fishing 6' off our dock, just don't trust the ice this year. The kids are still reeling in a lot of fish. Most are on 3/8 oz. jigs and salted minnows. My Granddaughter prefers a 3/8 to 1/2 oz. jigging lure.

Well, me and the kid went ice fishing for the first time in our lives. Went through a club that started at her school.

Just went to lockport as we were all first timers and didn't know what we were doing. 4 hours in and our group of 20+ people collectively caught 2 fish that were barely bigger than the bait.

The kid was disappointed, but it was a good time.
My wife is amazing!

Yes, it can be tough if you don't know the area well. I can honestly say if I went to Lockport today, I wouldn't know where to fish.

Eh... The Red is meh on a good day this time of year. Probably better luck on Lake Winnipeg proper - Chalet Beach and Balsam Bay are pretty consistent, and the drive is reasonable on a clear day.

Another very good weekend of fishing. The kids used mostly vertical jigging lures and spoons, as someone forgot to get more minnows. lol. Lots of walleye's in the 15"-18" size, and a tons of perch. I am glad some cooler weather is coming in, it was getting a little slushy around the dock.

Slow fishing yesterday afternoon. This morning a little better, but the kids figured there honey hole went dry. However, this afternoon it's been very good again. 3/8 oz. jigging spoons seems to be the answer today in about 12' of water.

Very windy for our first weekend of fishing. Got a break in the weather yesterday, but it was still windy. Spent most of our time drifting with bottom bouncers and lindy rigs. Caught most of our bigger walleye's in 10-12' of water. My granddaughter had a very good day catching small mouth bass and perch off our dock with 3/8 oz. spinners.

Had a visit from group that was on the water yesterday handing out info on Zebra Muscles. They wanted to know if we were checking our boat every time we lift it out of the water. They also suggested getting a devise called the Dock Disc. We normally pressure wash the boat every time we lift it, so they were happy with that.

My wife went online today to get her Manitoba fishing license and discovered that Manitoba no longer has a conservation license.
