My office on Lake Manitoba

This is my brother Jamie as we are just getting started for the day, temperature was minus 25 Celsius. No wind so it was quite warm out there. I will take some pictures and video on the Stormy days for you to see what it is like out there when Mother Nature decides to blow.
The first Walleye of the day. Prices for fish are not great right now but this is a 3 or 4 dollar fish. In the store it would be worth 10 or 12 dollars. Fishing is similar to the beef industry in that someone in the middle is making a lot of money.

This is a Walleye and a Sucker when we take it out of the net....
and this is how we send it to market. We haul the fish to town and they are packed in a ice/water mixture called a Slurry and are shipped to Winnipeg every other day and distributed from there all over the world.

My uncle Jack stopped by the other day and helped us for awhile. Here is a nice 27 inch Walleye. If you buy Walleye in the store, check the thickness of the flakes of meat. I think they take these fish and make more than one fillet out of them and slice them in half to sell as a smaller fish.
Looking west across the lake. Beautiful day, no hat when you are out of the wind. Freeze your ears when you go out in the

Until next time.....
