Welcome to Blackwater Cats Outfitter

Your fully licensed and insured four seasons fishing outfitter and guide service. Based in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada and operating out of both Lockport and Selkirk, Manitoba we specialize in giant Red River channel catfish and Trophy Lake Winnipeg greenback walleye.

Whether your looking for an expert Red River catfish guide to provide you with a world class catfishing experience on the mighty Red River or are interested in our famous fall run of trophy greenback walleye on the Winnipeg River, Red River, and south Basin of Lake Winnipeg, you have come to the right place my friends... we have the fishing guide for you.

Passion and experience are two characteristics of a great fishing guide Lake Winning Ice Fishing guideand Blackwater Cats Outfitter has both. With this amazing fishery in our back yard we have over 20 years experience targeting huge channel cats on the Red River, and trophy greenback walleye on the Winnipeg River and Lake Winnipeg..

Between a busy schedule guiding clients for huge channel catfish and trophy walleye, as well as tournament walleye fishing whenever I can squeeze it in, I am on the water constantly and ready to show you a good time and great fishing.

Our main goal is to provide you with a trip to remember, full of big fish, good company, and plenty of excitement for all with a guide who gets as much pleasure watching his guests catch big fish as he does catching them himself.
