Grown Man Caught Eating Walleye Sushi!

Our good friend, Dave Zapf, took this picture of me just about devouring a little walleye–or, as he calls it, walleye “sushi”.  The fish from Canada’s Lake Lac Seul come in all sizes but leave it up to me to catch a rare little one from this great fishery!  (P.S.-That fish should be about a…

Chris Burns Catches Monster Walleye!

Chris caught this huge walleye while we were fun fishing for a day after the FLW Walleye Tour event on Little Bay de Noc a couple summers ago.  Do you think we could catch one like this DURING the tournament?!  Anyway, we went over to Big Bay to a spot Chris felt the big girls…

Read This if you Care about the Future of Fishing

Dave and Brady Catching some Gills

My good friend Dave and his son Brady invited me to do some ice fishing with them a short three weeks ago. Hard to believe it’s snowing again here in Illinois. We had a heck of a good time catching many Blue Gills. I also want to thank the friends that we met on the ice, who added to the excitement when a 30+ Pike took one of their tip ups. Now all we have to do is wait till next year.

Big Salmon on Lake Michigan!

  Kenosha Harbor is a great place to go for the big four-year old King Salmon!  What  a hoot fishing in the harbor with shore anglers casting out to catch ’em and Dad trying to keep the Lund far enough away so we wouldn’t get caught up in any of the shore angler lines.  Can’t say he…

Dan and Chris with a Nice Bay de Noc Eye!

What can I say?  Only could the Burns’ brothers, Dan and Chris, show us the true colors of a Big Bay de Noc walleye!  Trolling spinners with crawler harnesses over the big rock reefs out there coaxed some real beauties up for Dan and Chris pre-fishing before the FLW Walleye Tour event out of the…

Little Bay de Noc Ice Report

It looks like the ice on Little Bay de Noc is thinning out and ice fishing for the 2009/2010 season is coming to a close: Warm temperatures have taken their toll on ice conditions. Mud and slush around the shoreline have made reaching the ice difficult in some areas. Pressure cracks have opened up even…

Marty Barski Catches a Walleysky!

Pretty corny, huh?  Our good friend from Chicago, Marty Barski, was Chris Burns’ co-angler partner during the 2009 FLW Walleye Tour events.  Marty and I did some prefishing before the FLW event at Red Wing together to see if we could find some additional spots for Chris.  We were out in my “Middle Lund” pulling…
