anybody around western manitoba, or any southern part of the province that fishes along the assiniboine river who would like to exchange tactics or techniqes in which we can share to advance our knowledge on the assiniboine.
i fish for channel cats on the assinoboine,near headingley. the sizes we catch vary in sizes a common size is 3-5 pounds. i catch em with a basic slip rig or a picerel rig, i bait that with cut bait or chicken liver or night carlers. all these baits work great. try to find a calm area with slack water and you will catch fish througout the summer.
I live right in Winnipeg and there are great spots to fish on the Assiniboine right in Assiniboine park! Ive caught 25 lb cats there...most are in the 3 to 5 range though. This spot is right by the barbeque pits and is hot as soon as the season starts. I basically learned how to catfish here as a teenager and progressed to fishing for cats primarily at lockport. Best baits are cut baits shrimp or chicken livers. Have fun!
