Fishing on Lake Winnipeg, with lots of beer.
How's that beer bait working?
It didn't do much for catching fish. It did attract a park ranger though who gave us a ticket for drinking in public (we were sitting queitly, in chairs, on a dock... and the beer was light beer). He also confiscated two of our rods because apparently in the fine print of the "ice fishing" section of the fishing guide it states you're only allowed one rod per person in the water (unless you're ice fishing). We weren't ice fishing (and thus didn't read that part).
In summary, we're out 300$, two good rods (which will have to be replaced), 4 hours gas, all of our beer (opened or not), and we didn't catch shit. Oh, and another rod broke on us.
It's one of the most sour experiences I've ever had. Worst of all we weren't trying to get away with anything. We read the rules and regulations and thought we were doing everything right.
Another victory for the Canadian fun-police. Weekend successfully ruined. Next time I'll just sit at home and stare at a wall. I think that's still allowed.
Don't feel bad for asking though, I was going to gripe about it somewhere anyway. Not your fault.
