Fishing season begins Saturday in Manitoba.
ReelBait’s Garth Cheung tells 680 CJOB you don’t have to deck yourself out in anything special to enjoy yourself.
While you could spend a lot of money on fishing equipment, he says all you really need are the basics: a rod, reel and bait.
And, of course, a license.
The fisher say it’s a good time of year to catch walleye, northern and pike in Manitoba lakes.
If you’re fishing off the shore of the Red River, you can hope to catch catfish, goldeye and drum bass.
