CATCH AND RELEASE

In order to ensure our future generations the ultimate Manitoba Fishing Adventure Jackson's Lodge & Outposts requests that you eat all the fish you want for shore lunches but please leave your 'take home' limit in the lake. All trophy-sized Walleye over 18" and Northern Pike over 27.5" must be carefully released. Record your memories on film, or opt for a replica mount. The one natural resource that keeps guests coming back each year is the fish in the lakes. We want to establish a resource that will last for generations to come, so possibly your children and grandchildren can enjoy them as well. C.P.R. (Catch, Photograph, Release) over the next few years will provide an even greater number of trophies caught each year.

Barbless Hooks

Manitoba regulations call for? barbless hooks. This means that any hooks attached to your line must either have no barb or have the barb pinched against the shaft of the hook. Barbed hooks may be kept in the tackle box.

Barbless hooks allows for easier removal and thus less stress on fish. In turn, this increases the odds that a fish will survive when returned to the water.
 

HANDLING YOUR FISH

Hold fish carefully under their belly, not in the gills Always handle a fish carefully and never insert your hands into the gills. Rather pull the fish from the water under the jaw bone. The best way to hold your fish for photos is to use gloves and place one hand in front of the tail and the other carefully under its belly. When returning the fish to the water, please be careful and not throw it in. Hold the tail and slowly move the fish side-to-side in an 's' patten until it regains strength and swims away. Never pull towards you or push away.

If a hook is caught in the fish's throat, do not forcefully pull. This can cause massive bleeding and death. Carefully try to remove the hook and if unable, cut the line at the hook and leave it there. The fish's digestive enzymes will corrode the hook and it will work its way out.

THE RIGHT TIME OF YEAR

Each group throughout the season ask the same question, "What is the best time to catch big fish". I will always give the same answer, and it truly is, "the best time is when you are there".
Because of the fresh water flow throughout the summer the water temps never really rise that high and you will find little difference between May 15, June 15 thru until September. We do find that many big pike are caught in early spring, and the primary reason is because there are more fishermen at that time.
If you look at the Manitoba Master Angler program which tracks and records trophy fish caught each year you will actually find as many large pike caught in July and August as in May and June.
I personally prefer late summer fishing over spring fishing and the reasons are a few. #1. You will find the temperature to be more stable each day. #2 Our rainy season is already over which usually ends around June 15-30. July and August do normally see less rainfall. #3 The insect season is greatly reduced because of drier weather giving to great access to fishing throughout the day and also great evening fishing. #4 And lastly, we find the large Walleyes schooled on reefs on the lake and wherever you find an abundance of Walleyes the Pike are not far away.
So, when planning a fishing trip never overlook the late season for large fish, its an all around great time to be out fishing.
