And then, our Pièce de résistance. We were near Lockport, which I am informed is the mecca for fishermen seeking the Manitoba Catfish. In winter, the river is covered with fish huts hunting this big fish. Come summer, Selkirk hosts the Manitoba Catfish International tournament. This is a serious fish, for serious fishermen. Selkirk even hosts a statue of Chuck, the Channel Catfish. We didn't get to see it -- bridge was closed... The point being these are huge fish, and folk come from around the world to fish for them.
Well, we needed neither net nor bait... We found a catfish on the road, right on the white line. Roadkill Catfish...
