Your Manitoba Fishing Paradise
an invigorating ride out on a mirror-still lake in the crisp morning
air as bald eagles soar gracefully overhead. Moose watch from the trees
near the shoreline as you stow your fishing gear, lures, tackle
box and prized fishing rod and reel. Settle back in your spring loaded seat as
your guide confidently heads you toward the best day of fishing
in your life.
Healey's God's Lake Narrows Lodge was already a favorite for its
world-class trout fishing, homemade hospitality, outstand food and
natural serenity long before the Manitoba Department of Fisheries in
Winnipeg certified its all-time record Lake Trout in 1998. Sixty-five miles of shimmering, crystal clear
waters dotted with islands wrapped in breathtaking beauty... all
invite you to reserve your fishing trip to paradise.
The Healey's hearty hospitality from this working wilderness outpost,
not only welcomes dignitaries and celebrities like Alex Debogorski
from Ice Road Truckers but hunters, fisherman, travelers and
Your anticipation is so intense that you seem
to be moving in slow motion as you attempt to quickly snap that
brand new "five-o-diamonds" on the swivel hook.
Finally you're ready and the first cast of the day slaps against
the crystal clear water and then disappears. You go to the power
handle and start the retrieve. What's that? Did I feel a tap?
Before another thought enters your head, your rod is almost
jerked from your hand as the huge northern makes his play for
what he thought was going to be an easy breakfast. For what
seems an eternity, you match wits with the foe on the end of
that new line.
Gradually the huge northern is sapped of his
strength and is brought up alongside the boat to be netted by
the guide. But then... as the huge northern sees the boat there
is another long run and the fight starts all over. Twenty
minutes later, once again the trophy is brought to the side of
the boat and this time is netted. Into the boat he comes, all
twenty-nine pounds of him!
Healey's fleet of sleek 18 foot Lund boats,
each equipped with a powerful Yamaha 40 HP engine, fish
locators, ice chests, live wells, rod holders, spring loaded
padded seats with backs and full floors, are easy to fish from
and easy to walk through for comfort you would never imagine
possible in a fishing boat.
