  1. Just got back from a fishing trip in Northern Manitoba fishing for Pike and Lake Trout.

    Went a day early and fished for Cats on the Red River.

    Between 4 people, we caught 54 Channel cats, the picture is

    very representative of the average catch.

    Our guides said this was their best day ever.....ours too.

  2. Here is a "Double", we had several of these.

    They say these are the largest channel catfish in the world.....I don't really know, but they were big, largest was 39 inches, smallest was 27 inches long.

    If you ever get up that way, give it a try, lots of fun.

  5. Had a couple requests for the catfish guide phone number:

    204-339-2133 home
    204-792-3899 cell

    His name is Ken Rey, school teacher / heck of a nice person and a great guide. You can't go wrong with this fellow.

    Is indeed the best waters for channel cats. There is also an area out west that produces channels 30-35 pounds regulary. Looks like you guys had one of those trips of a life time. Beautiful fish all around !!! Thanks for sharing. CATKING :)

    katfish Cats are where it's at!

    Red river near Selkirk can indeed produce some fine channel cat action.


    Kayla caught 12 over 12 pounds including 4 over 20 in just 4 hours.


  9. Katfish:

    Looks she had a blast catching those channels.

    Memories of a life time.

    That's one of the places I would like to go catfishing, but my luck, I owuld travel all the way there and get skunked! :rolleyes:

    An OGF thing up there would be great!

    i know someone might already know without looking it up, so what are the regulations on catfish up there??? I would have to think they have some good regs to get quality fish like that on a reg basis. Unless the locals don't fish for them up that way. I have heard of lakes where some people do not fish for smallmouth. They consider them trash fish. Most of the smallies there look like footballs. I wonder if this is the same in Canada??? Anyone know???
  17. no kill 24"+

    that is why it is a trophy fisherie
  18. As Master Angler said....All cats are catch & release on the channels over 24 inches.

    Also barbless hooks for all species

    Thanks guys!

    I think I remember seeing Shaw Grigsby or Bill Dance or one of those guys up there one time catching these big channels and they said something aboput no barbs on your hooks. Gee now maybe I should have kept ahold of those 8/0 Gamakatsu Circle octopus hooks with no barbs I sold on Ebay! Not that I would get to go there, but would make me feel like I was almost ready to! ;)
