Wait, I thought drinking was just an excuse to go fishing, and fishing was just an excuse to drink.

Oh wait, that's bowling :lol:

No, you had it right. It's fishing.

And curling.

And bowling.

And getting firewood.

I'm thinking it falls under the same law that says you can't consume open booze in a public place but maybe there is a specific one in MB. Just because you toss up a shack on public property does not mean you are not on public property when you are in it.

I guess if your government can't oppress people with the silly Gun Registry they've got to come up with alternate ways of letting you know who your betters are. :roll:

Generates revenue which the real reason. Real criminals don't pay silly fines.

The concern is drinking and driving, our ice shack has bunk beds,satelite dish and all the comforts of home, something like camping only on a frozen lake. Not everybody drinks to excess and everyone that has a beer or two over several hours can't drive.

-- sometimes we catch fish!

In Manitoba it is...

*checks Alberta regs*

Can't find anything about drinking and fishing. *whew!*

I'm stayin' in Alberta. :lol:

Seriously, though, that's strange. I can see being required to have a designated driver (you have to get off the ice at some point, and you need someone to drive the truck/sled), but I'm not sure why your fish-mates can't have a beer.

This is going to be a BIG shocker for those who come from Wisconsin/Minnesota to go up to Manitoba for fishing trips...

Because in most cases, they are not on private property. What's the difference between drinking there, and say, drinking at the pier in town when you fish?

I think we should scrap those public drinking laws altogether. It's ridiculous that you can't, for example, serve beer or wine if you're having a picnic at a park. Nonsense.

In any case, it never stops me (or anyone else probably) from bringing beer or wine to a picnic... just think the laws should reflect reality. There's nothing inherently wrong with consuming an alcoholic beverage in public. It's just that some people over-consume and make arses out of themselves. But in that case, you could get them on public intoxication. No reason to ruin the fun for everyone else.
