Canada Fishing 2019 Special DWWC Rates

Canadian Fishing – Exclusive DWWC Member Special Pricing Ruffo’s Sportsman’s Lodge has a long-standing relationship with DWWC and is offering our members an exclusive opportunity to fish beautiful northern Saskatchewan for a deeply discounted price! The lodge is located on McIntosh Lake, 50 miles north of La Ronge, SK. It’s on the Churchill River system—a vast series of finger lakes and streams in Canada’s pristine North that will provide you great diversity in angling. Whether it’s the adrenalin rush of going head-to-head with massive Northern Pike, or the fast-paced action of landing a huge Walleye that you hope to prepare for shore lunch that day, or if you prefer to reel-in a fine Lake Trout, the waters around Ruffo’s Sportsman’s Lodge have it all. Fishing at Ruffo’s Sportsman’s Lodge is plain and simply - excellent. Exclusive DWWC Special is available to all DWWC members. Multiple member trips can be booked during the promotion period. Our pricing assumes double occupancy on the boat. OUR SPECIAL RATES reflect up to a 40% discount off of the lodges Internet rates depending on package selected: • *3 nights / 3 days of fishing: $1825 USD per person • *4 nights / 4 days of fishing: $2395 USD per person * either package includes an optional extra night with meals at no additional charge PRICING INCLUDES boat, motor, gas, guide, home cooked meals, shore lunches, excellent lodging accommodations, and your float plane travel from/to La Ronge. All trips are fully guided with one guide and boat for every two anglers. Special pricing is valid for the 2019 Canadian Fishing Season so your booking must be taken by end of August, 2019 on mutually acceptable dates. TRAVEL: To get there, you must book your commercial flights to Saskatoon SK, usually reached via Minneapolis, MN, International Falls MN or Calgary AL. In Saskatoon, you will rent a car and drive north 4 hours to La Ronge. Your float plane travel between La Ronge and Sportsman’s Lodge is included with your package. Same day travel from DFW up to Sportsman’s Lodge is the way to go. AWESOME FISHING: As with many Canadian waters, this is Catch and Release except for what you consume on site. Ruffo’s Sportsman’s Lodge has promoted Catch and Release for years. Because they are releasing trophy fish back into the Churchill River system, breeding stock is at an all-time high, and each year guests are consistently catching larger fish. Many guests return year after year for another exhilarating experience at trophy Pike and Walleye fishing.

June 7th Lake Texoma Striper Fishing

June 7th Lake Texoma Striper Fishing

Who said you must travel afar for saltwater fish. Striped Bass common to Chesapeake Bay thrive in the natural fishery that is Lake Texoma, one of the top Striper fisheries in the world! By our fishing date in early June, the Striper’s are expected to have returned from successful spawning on the Red River, and are back in the lake in a post-spawn pattern… with nothing but FOOD on their minds now. This will be a Live Bait with optional lure fishing excursion. We will catch lots of fish! We will be fishing with Brian Prichard of Stripers Inc. His motto is to treat you like family and provide you with the best experience possible during your trip. We will not be rushed back to the dock after a quick limit is caught. Whether your focus is to catch your limit, go for Big Striper, or land a mega Catfish, we will have a minimum ½ day (4-5 hours) on the water. Fish cleaning and bagging of your catch for your short trip home is provided. We have booked one boat with max capacity of 6 anglers. Once we reach 4 or 5 signups, we plan to book a 2nd boat and try to reach an ideal trip size of 8 to 10 anglers, or 4 to 5 per boat. Youth and spouses may come along. For those interested, Little Mineral Marina has some remodeled cabins available. Cabin sizes vary (based on availability at time of booking). This may be good for members wanting to arrive the night of June 6, supporting a wake-up call just next door to the boat dock. We will ask about this later.

Oct 11 Fall Texoma Striper Fishing using Large Top Water Lures

Oct 11 Fall Texoma Striper Fishing using Large Top Water Lures

Fall Striper Fishing using Large Topwater Lures It’s about watching the sunrise over the water. It’s about breathing in fresh air, and watching the light reflect off the waves, its about casting a five or six inch topwater plug up near the shore in search of a huge fish, its about seeing a ripple in the water near your slowly retrieving lure….then by a large Splash and BAM on the surface, the mayhem has started, the fight is on! Many huge Stripers are caught with topwater lures on Texoma every Fall Season measuring over 20”. This is high adventure fishing North Texas style! There’s nothing like catching big fish this way and October is the time to do it. This is stealthy fishing. We’ll have to be quiet as we approach the fishing areas so not to spook em. We chose a weekday so we don’t have boats following us and adding to our rumble level. We will be fishing with Brian Prichard of Stripers Inc. We’ll have a minimum ½ day (4-5 hours) on the water. Only two Stripers over 20” can be kept per angler. Depending on time and bite, we’ll go catch more frying pan fish before returning to doc. Fish cleaning and bagging of your catch for your short trip home is provided. We have booked one boat and are limiting ourselves to 4 anglers per boat in support of this type of fishing. Once we reach 4 signups, we plan to book a 2nd boat and try to reach an ideal trip size of 8 anglers. A second boat fishing at a different location helps guides as we can cell phone back and fourth on who is catching. For those interested in arriving the night before, Little Mineral Marina has cabins available, and Tanglewood Resort is close by. You might stay and do a round of golf after fishing. We will ask about your lodging plans later in case there are some common interests. Please sign-up early so we can plan accordingly. Who: Up to 8 spots available Where: We will meet our guide at Little Mineral Marina in Pottsboro TX When: Before sun up on Friday, October 11 - chose a weekday to escape weekend crowds. Cost: $150 per person includes fishing, cleaning filleting of fish, and DWWC activity charge. Optional tip is not included. For non-members, add $25.
