In Lake Fishing Manitoba, host Jim Hoey visits his wife, Shannon's home town of Flin Flon on the Manitoba - Saskatchewan border, in Canada. It's actually a mining city that was founded in 1927 to exploit the vast copper and zinc deposits that were discovered nearby. It is surrounded by lakes which provide some great fishing opportunities. Jim spends a few days fishing with some of the locals, starting off on the legendary Lake Athapapuskow with Dallas Mymko, he was a mining inspector before he retired and has been fishing the lake for over 50 years, he guides Jim on to a lovely Lake Trout using a luminous jig. It's not quite as big as the lake record, a whopping 63.5lbs, the fish can still be seen in the Flin Flon Museum. He's also out on Kississing Lake with Ralph Cosgrove and his buddy Dean Fisher and they're catching plenty of Walleye as well as the odd Perch and having a lot of laughs in the process.
