Dkiazyk, I saw your post about Lake Dauphin. I go hunting there every fall. I have brought my fishing rod allong with and fished Manitoba but never made it to Dauphin. Dauphin water gets so cloudy but I have heard it is awesome for fishing. Is the fall bite very good? I would think that is is but I never see any one out on the lake fishing. Last year when we were hunting I saw one of the weirdest things on that lake. Looking to the north through binoculars there were large whitecaps. I looked like it was getting really ugly out there. The place where we wer was dead calm, I mean glass. The white caps stayed to the north and kept rolling up north for another hour but the wave action never came south. Also there is some major water level changes on that lake. I thought was seeing things but the water level changed 3 times in a couple of hours. About 8" from its high point to its low point. I thought there was a tied until it changed 2 more times. It was kinda of bizzare. It was not a windy day, mostly calm except for the whitecaps up north. Any explainations?
Do you know when the bulk of the northern mallards come through? We have always hunted the 1st week of October. We ocassionaly (about every 3rd or 4th year) see quite a few mallards. I have seem the behive up there but it never seems to be consistant? I think we might be there a little early for them.
One last thing, The place we have been staying at for the last several years has been sold. Might you know of any one who might rent out a House/cabin or old farm house? We have hunted the area for 15 years and have several references from people that live there. Idealy we would like to be anywhere from St Rose up to Rorketon. Any help would be appreciated.

      Okay, I’m not into gore. I’ve only had to do surgery on one hook and that’s enough. PSU, I’m wondering how you’re doing. Cliff offered good advice. In the Frazer Bay Area, bobbers are my only means of catching fish of size. I t seems like the dinks are dominating the reefs. Spinners can pick up fish near structure. I was looking back at my logs recently and late July has always been tough.  Dick

      I haven't done it on all my stuff, but I don't avoid using a bait because I mashed the barbs.   It would probably be a good idea to mash more of them, even if just to make it easier to get them out when they get hooked on something like clothing or a rag.

      Manitoba requires the same, and I agree, we didn’t notice a difference either except for keeping bait on the hook.  It’s just a hard mental block to get around. @LBerquist, ouch!  Unfortunately I know what those are like.  Both getting them out of myself and helping others!  You can pinch the barbs down on any hook though.  Some lay down nice and others will break off, leaving just a little bit of a rough bump which I kind of like better.  There’s a little bit of grip left that way.

      Thanks for the tip something new to try 🙂

      I wish barb less hooks were more available. I'd switch, heard they come out easier....

      The gulp crawlers in packages are tougher than those in the alive container.  The one in the picture is from the alive container.  Both versions work well on spinner and slow death rigs.

      Gulp crawler.  In the spot the walleyes were going in there was a pile of 3-5" perch that tore up the real crawlers.   Gulp crawlers took care of the issue and the eyes liked them too.
