LDTManitoba has great activities for family. Check out a few things going on this month.


If you ice fish then March is your month! There’s ice fishing derby’s on several weekends this month. We’ve found three of them below. You can make your own fishing tour and come home with some nice prizes.

11th Annual Lac du Bonnet Ice Fishing Derby

Date: March 4, 2017

Location: Lac du Bonnet, MB

Join us for the 11th Annual Lac du Bonnet Ice Fishing Derby where size doesn’t matter! With our hidden length and time derby, all you have to do is catch a fish for your chance to walk away with $10,000 cash. In fact, you don’t even have to catch a fish at all to be able to win one of our amazing randomly drawn prizes.

Always fun and full of surprises, the Lac du Bonnet Ice Fishing Derby is a great way to get out and enjoy one of Manitoba’s favorite winter pass times. Master Anglers, professional fishers, fishing enthusiasts, and families alike all have a great time out on the ice. Heck, with an average of 105 fish caught every year, we think it’s safe to say that even the fish have fun at the Lac du Bonnet Ice Fishing Derby.
