Fishing spots in Manitoba

My husband and I are relatively new to Manitoba. We both enjoy fishing but have not had much luck so far when we have gone out the past few years. We have a small boat and have mainly gone to the Turtle Mountain Lakes.  
I have a few questions for you avid fishermen out there:  
Where have you found success fishing this year or in recent years?  
What kind of lures/bait do you use?  
What are good spots for catch and release type fishing?  
And alternately, where can you catch decent edable fish?  
Any other strategies or tactics you have found to work would be appreciated too (like if there is a certain time of day that is best, or a particular way to reel in the line, etc.)  
Sorry if I sound like I know nothing - we enjoy it but are are only just learning still and new to the area also! Double whammy!  

The quiet one

If you are looking for a quiet place that is good for a small boat , I would recommend the Waterhen river. First time that I was there was last summer, and the pickeral fishing was awesome. Check out the website - Agassiz Outfitters and they will help you. They have cabin rentals.

lots of great little lakes

we've had some luck at Rivers, Oak Lake, Arrow Lake - and they are all nice spots - and the walleye is definitely edible!! Good Luck!

my parents have gone to Grand Rapids every year (1-2X) they go, catch their limits and sometimes masters. I'm not sure what they all use there, but i know they've used spoons (not the utensil lol). but if you have a smaller boat, you probably want to stick to a smaller lake.  
me and my husband fish in the duck mountains and use whatever lure is working at the time (usually a spinner with fake bait) with bottom bouncer weights. we catch and release.  
both us and my parents don't cast and reel in, we troll when we're fishing

In all of Manitoba?!

Boy, that'll be quite a wishlist....  
God's lake/God's river for the biggest brook trout in high numbers.  
Lockport just north of Winnipeg for the Channel Cats.  
A trip towards the Pas/Cranberry Portage/Flin Flon will yield a tonne of lakes along the way, and finish off in lake Athapap @ Flin Flon. Monster jack/walleye/trout.  
Lake of the Prairies closely is a good time for walleye.  
And if you can get some good boats over on Lake Winnipeg for at Lake of the Woods you'd have a lotta fun too!
