Jumbo Mooneye Fishing in Manitoba - Manitoba Master Angler Minute

April 22, 2016
It’s tough being a twin! Almost identical to its closest relative, the goldeye, the mooneye is often mistaken for its next of kin, and equally, vice versa. The best part about this mistaken identity is that the mooneye has everything to offer that the goldeye does. Whether it’s the highly demanded angling experience or gourmet qualities, they are both one in the same, with a slight difference in distinguishing details. With mooneye largely inhabiting the boundaries of a few traditional rivers, angling opportunities can be limited to specific locations. Most commonly caught throughout the Winnipeg River system, mooneyes have also been found in the Assiniboine and Red Rivers, with many locations regularly producing mooneyes that exceed 16 inches! Follow Aaron Wiebe as he showcases where, when and how to catch mooneye in Manitoba. For more information on fishing in Manitoba, visit http://www.huntfishmanitoba.com/
