Modern Outposts, Spectacular Fishing, Private Lakes

Dogskin offers exceptional outposts located on lakes where we have the only outfitting rights, deep in the Eastern Manitoba bush. Each lake has only one cabin and you can be assured that you are only one of a handful of people that fish the lake every year. Whether you are interested in bringing up longtime friends, are part of a corporate group, or a family taking an annual fishing vacation, we are certain that we will provide you with a high-quality, stress-free fishing trip. You can choose between our three solar-powered, modern camps on Mannifrank, Noname or Black lakes, or our traditional camp on South Eagle. All of our camps are located within 30 miles of the main lodge on Dogskin Lake.

Our modern camps feature solar power, hot/cold running water, showers, refrigerator/freezer, electric lights and three-season porches. Satellite phone service is also available at the modern camps. The solar systems charge large battery banks, providing uninterrupted power for our guests. The conventional camp at South Eagle has propane lights and refrigerator/freezer, hand pumped water and a three-season porch.

Trips to our outposts are available in three-, four- and seven-night packages. They include all of the basics that your group needs for a successful fishing vacation, including your round trip floatplane transportation, boats, motors, gas, propane and conservation fishing licence. You only need to be bring in your fishing gear, clothing, sleeping bag, food and any personal items. In addition, we can provide high quality, customizable food packages to make it even easier to plan and execute your trip. This option has become very popular due to the large amount of space and time that it saves our guests.

Over 20 years ago we instituted a "Catch and Consume" fishing policy that allows us to protect the fantastic fisheries at the outposts by keeping all of the larger fish in the lakes. We allow our guests to keep fish in the range of 14" to 17" for their shore lunches. Everything else goes back to be caught again another day.

Portage Lake Area: 800 Acres

The outpost at Mannifrank was first used in 1997. It has quickly become one of most popular outposts due to its outstanding walleye fishing throughout the season and great early and late season pike. The lake contains about 1700 acres of water, with a portage lake also available for additional fishing.

Mannifrank has a significant amount of open water. Guests will find a large amount of structure and cover out on the lake that holds the larger fish. The long narrow bay to the Northwest is fairly shallow and provides spectacular fishing in the early and late seasons when the water is cool. As the water warms, the fish migrate out to deeper water and can be found 20' to 30' of water or deeper.

Mannifrank is a comfortable outpost camp with 3BR, shower, full kitchen and dining room.

There is a large set of rapids to the North with additional boats and motors located below for our guests to use. In the past, the fishing was great, but the cabin was just average. However, in 2005 we completed a complete renovation of the cabin, making it one of the best outpost cabins you'll find deep in the Canadian bush. Large windows in the three-season porch and a deck allow spectacular views of the pristine wilderness that this area of Canada is known for.
