As the areas premier 4-seasons fishing outfitter Donovan switches gears in late September and focuses on Manitoba’s famous fall run of Lake Winnipeg greenback walleye. His fall fishing season is spent on the Red River and Winnipeg River chasing trophy fall walleye and tournament fishing on the Red River and in Pine Falls. The trophy walleye pursuit continues through the winter and into the Lake Winnipeg ice fishing season where he spends the winter hunting down large schools of walleye for his guests.
Donovan Pearase and Blackwater Cats Outfitter has gained a solid reputation for great service and great fishing through years of hard work and determination which opened up several exciting media opportunities in print and television. He has appeared on both In-Fisherman TV and Fords The Outfitters both on the Sportsman’s Channel. A bucket list highlight for Donovan was getting to fish with his personal mentor and In-Fisherman, Editor In Chief Doug Stange.
Besides writing and contributing to online blogs in WFN, IN-Fisherman, and Outdoor Canada, Donovan has written articles for Just Fishing with Big Jim Mclaughlin, Hooked Magazine and in 2013 co-founded Manitoba Outdoors.
