Good day everyone, I am immigrating from Ukraine, hope to reside in Morden this winter. I have been selling fishing gear for over 15 years, and now I am developing my own brand of fishing lures (and maybe soon casting rods).
So my questions are:
1. Do you need another new Fishing Tackle brand in Manitoba??? If so, why? what is missing there? Right price, quality, variety?
2. What do you prefer: Casting or Spinning tackles?
3. Are you planning to switch from spinning to casting gear in the future?
4. If you just want to try fishing, which gear would you buy, spinning or casting and why?

I am planning to lunch online store with fishing lures (hard \ soft plastic, metal) hooks and lines for predatory fish mostly. Also I am working on casting rod.
For example, hard plastic fishing lures price, japan like quality, will be about 3-6 cad

Highly appreciate your responses - it will help me to better understand what Manitoba's needs are )

Find the china factory that is pumping out the frost bite rods and rebrand them for half the price.

frost bite rods
I see they make ice rods, for now I am more concentrated on casting and spinning (summer time) rods. Maybe this summer I will be working on ice rods. But 40cad+ for ice rod is a lot of money... so I will study this topic. Where do they sell them? online store? offline store? Instagram?

Hello everyone, I am not sure if it is allowed to post here my online store. But I would like to have a thread here regarding my brand, so I can notify any changes, new arrivals etc.
I am launching an online fishing tackle store "GoFishing" - located in Morden.
Free Manitoba delivery for orders over $100.
NO GST \ PST
Manitoba delivery - $10
Morden, Winkler city delivery = $7,
There are 6 models of hard baits for now, but each model is selected, tested and is very well made. Each model has different colors to choose from.
It is the time to prepare for the open water fishing season!

I am planning to develop a full online store – so everyone can buy all he / she needs for fishing, I already have new models designed, and also I am developing braids, soft baits and rods. I guess this Summer new models of hard baits, soft baits, lines, and hooks will come.

Maybe somebody can give a feedback - what is most needed in Manitoba province fishing tackle wise? What models of lures?
That's an awful subjective question depending who you're asking. I enjoy collecting custom crankbaits but rarely fish with them. I often fish with my own tied marabou jigs for bass and love some good rattle baits for walleye. If you're looking to get into the market try posting some of your lures and then focus on what sells the best. I think most fishing lures are meant to catch the anglers eye ;)

Thank for a reply. I new to Manitoba and to Canada. However I was on a fishing on white mud river - so I have some basic perception about fishing, but I am not sure what local anglers often use and what is in a shortage... That is why it always good to listen too somebody who has grown up here.

Difficult question. Generally, people here don't spend a ton on tackle. There is a niche market for high-end tackle, rods, lures, etc. but probably not enough to sustain a business. Pickrel rigs and jigs are probably the two most commonly used for catching fish in MB waters not particularly because they work so well but because they're cheap and still effective. With high gas prices right now, I'm expecting less people on the water this summer and those that still make it out regularly may not be in the mood to splurge on expensive tackle.
