Looking Good for an Early Breakup!!

Spring has arrived in full effect and it looks good for a slightly early break up!  That would be great to have ample time to get all of our camps ready for a busy season.  The arrival of spring should bring all of the fish to spawn early and then begin the transition into normal patterns right when our guests are scheduled to begin!  Fishing is always awesome but in the spring it all has to do with water temperature, with an early ice out we should not have to wait for the water to warm up this year!

We have a couple of May dates left for this season. Here are some dates for you to consider.

Blackbirch May 26-June 1

Loree Lake May 18-25

Cobham Morley May 19-23

The Monsters are waking up!!

The most feared fish in the North has been quietly laying in the depths of the icy cold dark waters of the North all winter.  They can sense the longer days approaching and are beginning to stir.  The melt is slowly starting to trickle into the  lakes and the flow of the rivers will soon increase, filling the lakes with fresh water.  Waking up all of the fish from the slowness of winter for a summer of action!

These beasts are caught photographed and released back into the water to continue their life in this pristine environment.  We ask our guests to treat these trophies as such.  A great old fish that has been growing at a much slower rate then those of warmer climates, perhaps being caught more than once in its lifetime and surviving to exist and grow larger passing their genes onto many generations keeping the gene pool healthy and strong.

If you want to experience the best fishing of your life in a place you will never forget, plan your next vacation with us.

Do you want to catch a Trophy Fish?

How many fishing trips have you been on where the fishing, the outfitter, or the accommodations did not meet your expectations.  Amik Outposts takes pride in making sure that you have a great fishing vacation whether it is your first trip or your 40th one.  We are a small owner/operator company where even the smallest details of your trip will be handled professionally and courteously.  The accommodations are not extravagantly fancy, they are well planned, up to date with lots of fridge/freezer space, comfortable beds, couches and enough space for your party to stretch out and relax.

We know you are on a fishing trip and will spend many hours on the water enjoying the beautiful scenery in an area of Canada that has remained untouched since the beginning of time.  The fishing also has remained untouched since the beginning of time.  Unlike many lakes further south that were being used as outposts for 50 years during a time when everyone took home a limit of 6-8 walleye and 6-8 pike, all trophies, most of our lakes were opened up in the early 90’s and have had a conservation policy in place since that day.  Our gene pool is healthy and the fishing is as good as it gets.  Just look around our website, our pictures are from last season on all of the pages.

Here are some of the beauties caught and released last summer.

Winter has settled in.

Fall is distant memory and winter has settled in.  Our deer season here was something not even worth mentioning.  Our deer heard in much of Manitoba took 2 years of harsh winters and this year I saw only a handful of deer, nothing close to being a shooter.  Lets hope next year is better.

Where we are in Manitoba, we do not have much snow yet but it has been cold.  We have seen many nights of -25 or colder already.  The lake is frozen and within two and a half weeks we already have 20 inches of ice!  My brother and I have been fishing on the lake and I have started trapping on the side.  Catching weasels, mink, pine martin, fishers, coyotes and foxes, I consider myself fortunate to be able to do what I love in the outdoors each and everyday.

The Ice makes some interesting formations as the wind blows the water up on shore during the freeze up.

We are feeding the masses with walleye, pike, whitefish, and even the suckers!

Everyone always asks, “how do you get the net under the ice?” This is the “jigger”.  It has magnetic switches inside and when you touch the back with a magnet it turns on, when it has gone far enough you jerk the line and another magnet turns it off.  Then go find it, cut a hole and pull the net under the water.

My pal Dustee has been back out there too. She feels right at home out on the lake.

Trapping has been in my blood since I was born. My family came to Canada in the early 1900’s and we grew up farmers, fishermen, and trappers. Here is my buddy the Pine Martin.

In the past few years we have been getting more Otters living along the lake and I have finally figured out how to catch them. They have beautiful short fur and are a wiley animal.
