Ready Your Truck for Ice Fishing

Ice Fishing with Carlson Truck OutfittersWinnipeg fishermen have it good – there’s an abundance of great places to pursue trophy-sized examples of many species – bass, catfish, crappie, walleye, and more – within a relatively short distance of the city.  In winter, Manitoba’s deep freeze temperatures mean plenty of opportunities for ice fishing.

Anglers spend countless hours before a trip making sure their gear is ready for action.  They sometimes, however, forget one of the most important pieces of fishing equipment – the vehicle that’s going to take them to their favourite frozen fishing hole.

Getting to Difficult-To-Access Fishing Spots

If you’re looking for lunkers, you generally have to get up really early in the morning.  You want to be on the lake by sunup.  Adequate lighting for travel on rough road surfaces is a must.  Nobody wants to spend valuable fishing time dealing with a bent rim or a busted axle.  Carlson Truck Outfitters has a good selection of off-road lighting that can help keep you rolling.  We’ve also got protective bush bars, winches, and a whole array of four-wheeling accessories to get your truck ready to venture further off the beaten path, where the fish are more plentiful and subject to less angling pressure.


It’s important to keep your fishing gear (and yourself!) dry and secure.  We’ve got a wide array of accessories that can help –tonneau covers, toolboxes, bed caps, and back racks.  We’re pickup truck experts – drop by and speak with one of our associates, and we’ll help you find a solution that fits your needs and your budget.

Have a Great Getaway

Be safe when travelling on ice surfaces – consult with locals regarding ice conditions, and err on the side of caution.  At Carlson Truck Outfitters, we love our Province and your truck, and we want to help you enjoy them both!
