    @Ernie thank you!! I think this could be a great idea even if it's just fishing a familiar species on a different body of water one has heard about in a different setting of new scenery. Maybe someone is going to be travelling through(if we are ever allowed to travel again province to province) and would like to fit in a bit of fishing along the way. Might be a kind of a slow start with our current situation but something to look forward to in the future and connect with folks we network with here on CFF. Of course it does not need be out of province either. Maybe someone would like to swap within areas of their home province they are not familiar with but have always wanted to try?

    Once we can travel again I know I'd be up for a few different things:
    ON: Largies/Smallies
    MB - Tigers/Brookies/Bows/Cats/Greenbacks
    BC - Bows, Bulls, Kokanee


    I live on the AB/SK border ( Lloydminster) and can offer in my area:
    AB/SK - Lakers/Northern Pike/Stocked Trout (open water/ice fishing)
    AB - Whitetail Hunting
    AB - Mule Deer (draw for areas 236/256)
    AB - SK Waterfowl Hunt (fall/spring).

    It's a great idea.

    When I'm traveling I typically look up a fishing guide....neat option to connect here online, see if the dates work, then trade a trip and keep one in the bank.

    If you come out this way, shoot me a msg. If I'm not available, chances are I could point you toward a top guide for the area you're vacationing in, within the region--MB and NW Ont

    We'd prob get along pretty good in the boat.

    Thanks @Mike B. I will definitely contact you once we can travel again and we are headed that way. If you're headed this way feel free to shoot me a message and if we can make it work I'll be glad to take you out as well!

    From some of our PM's I'm sure we'd get along pretty good in the boat too..,or even the blind if you want to try bonking some birds etc! Lol

    Most definitely! I'd be happy to host you as well if you are ever in our area. I could put you onto some good laker action on the boat or a chance at some big pike through the ice.

    Great idea. I traded a guy in Upper Michigan a turkey hunt for an extended weekend fishing. Still keep in touch.
