1. MB: Winnipeg and Red River ice fishing workshop.
Happening this Saturday in Selkirk. Learn to catch #greenbacks
2. MN: Lake of the Woods has some ice.

3. ON: Anglers fined for smuggling leeches ‘cross border.

My man Tanner Cherney is starting to pace the shorelines (can relate!):

7. Is this how Okuma named their…
…Cold Water Line Counters? Hope Mick Broughton has a good pair of gloves:

Not the baits, the biz — excited to see who snipes ’em up. They make the killer Trout-N-Pout Spoons that catch burbot that’ll even impress Lady Gaga:
9. DC: Great Lakes senators want Asian carp plan done.
