A Natural Resources Officer with Manitoba Conservation says there's been a tremendous increase in ice fishing in the past six or seven years. Andre Desrosiers says, for example, you can see a couple of thousand fishers at the south end of Lake Winnipeg on a good day.
"And I think that is directly attributable to the portable fishing shelters(below) that have come out. They are so handy, so efficient. You just fold them up and put them in your car and off you go. Then of course there are power augers and now there's also a kind of new sonar. They're called 'flashers.' They show you where your hook is and where the fish is and when the two meet maybe you've
got yourself a fish on your line."
He adds anglers report they've had good luck catching plenty of fish this winter.
"The Red River was really good all winter compared to the last number of years. Walleye were being caught the whole winter long which is really nice. Lake Winnipeg, which is a relatively new recreational fishery, in terms of ice fishing, people were catching Walleye, Sauger, Pike and multiple other species."
Desrosiers says the ice fishing season is rapidly drawing to a close in southern Manitoba. He notes fishing shacks had to be off the Red River by March 10th and have to be off other lakes and rivers by March 31st.
