The sobriquet, ''Land of 100,000 Lakes'' is perfectly suited to describe the Province of Manitoba. It is the go-to province when power boat enthusiasts, from the occasional to the most avid boater wish to experience their watersport of choice.
If you are in search of a place that has an overabundance of lakes, rivers and streams on which to practise your favorite pastime, look no more! Take a fishing trip on Lake Winnipeg (Canada's 3rd largest lake), or on the Nelson, Churchill, or Hayes Rivers which all flow into Hudson Bay. The catch of the day that you will likely pull out could be whitefish, pike, walleye, pickerel, trout or bass.
If you just want to wander aimlessly in this Prairie Paradise on your pontoon boat, jet-ski, waterski or just relax on your houseboat, remember, you need your boating licence, whether to operate a personal watercraft, motorized boats with any type or size of motor, boats for waterskiing, pontoon boats, whatever your age. It's the law, in Manitoba and the rest of Canada!
