Just checking in from the SK/AB border for my annual look see at what's going on back on Nip. Here is a few pics from fishing out here this winter. Snow depths have made for travel by snowmobile only on most lakes this year in our area but there is still a lake or two that can be accessed by truck. Since I don't own a sled it has limited my movement this winter but my wife and I are getting on some decent Brookies and Bows with the biggest to date being a 22" Rainbow that tipped the lip-grip to 6lb-3oz. I even caught my first ever Tiger Trout, they are a Brown X Brook Trout cross stocked in several waters in MB, SK and AB. Finally scratched that one off my bucket list.
Pic is a 19" Brookie

Rainbows this size are very common in our favorite stocked trout lakes...

WOW NEVER have i seen a tiger trout   very interesting 

First time I heard of them was in a fishing magazine back in the 80's. They were catching them in Manitoba. I think they were the first province in Canada to stock them. SK followed suit a few years later and just in the past 5 years or so they have started stocking them in Alberta. They started stocking a couple lakes close to us with them in the past few years. I made two excursions last year to a lake to try for them and saw three decent ones on my Aqua-vu but never got a hit. Last week I tried another spot that they started stocking three years ago but gets heavily fished so I didn't really have much confidence in actually getting one. I just dropped my line to bottom and before I could set it in the jawjacker felt a tug and set the hook hard and quick. Like I said it was no bruiser but it sure fired me up when I saw a Tiger enter the hole.
The one I caught was female. The particular lake I caught the one I did is stocked according to the AB Fisheries reports with females only. The lakes near me on the SK side are stocked with both male and female that grow to some good sizes. Now to catch one like this, a really bright coloured male!
