Lockport is a small community north of Winnipeg about 40 minutes travel. It is also the site of ancient agricultural inhabitation and also considered one of the oldest known settlement in Canada . The dam and lock of Red river can be found in Lockport as well. This place frequented by people who loves fishing during summer because it is one of the best fishing spot in Manitoba and its proximity to the city made it more accessible to everyone. I myself went there to fish. The best spot there for me is somewhere down the woods. I sat on a dried tree trunk while waiting for my catch and at the same time enjoying the river with ducks swimming and the migratory white pelican flying around the river to catch fish for food or just for fun and relaxation.
If you really want to catch some fish that are somewhat bigger than the last picture, the place to go is most anywhere up in northern Manitoba. There are many lakes all over that have excellent fishing, all you need is a boat, motor and a fishing license.
Some of the big ones will give you a good fight before you can get them into the boat.
Fishing is also a popular sport around our area. Many people go fishing on the Red River for Pickerel, Catfish or the occasional Sturgeon if you're really lucky. Most others go to the many lakes & rivers in the area to try their luckat catching a big one.
I am personally not a big advocate, but many of my friends and neighbours fish and hunt (deer, moose, waterfowl, etc.) quite regularily. I have fished, but unlike friends who say there is only great fishing (when they are biting) and good fishing (when they are not), I can't stand it when they are not.
