Big fines for keeping too many walleyes.

This article from the Park Rapids Enterprise in Park Rapids, Minnesota reminds us that penalties for breaking limit laws can and do happen.

That’s not a walleye?!

I know.  I know.  But catching Crappies can be fun this time of year, too.  Sons, Chris and Matt, joined me for a nice day of fishing at local Lake McBride Easter weekend 2009.  We were cozy in the Little Lund but caught lots of Crappies and some Stripers pulling crankbaits using my long rods…

Chicagoan Tames Another Walleye!

Chicago native, Dave Zapf, showed us how to jig for Lac Seul walleye using the finesse approach with a small foxee jig…see if you can find some and locate the walleyes in 7-14 feet of water just off the wind blown points and you’ll be cookin’ up  a shore lunch before you know it!  Way…

Getting Ready for a New Tournament Season!

Goodbye snow and ice….hello, open water fishing!  Yes, the snow’s about gone here in Eastern Iowa from the past week’s warmer temps and the light rains.   The “itch” to get the boat out of the shed is there and walleye anglers are talking about finding a decent ramp and water to make sure the equipment…

Walleyes right off the dock.

You don’t always have to venture far to catch big walleyes. As you can see, this walleye was taken just off shore. Hungry, opportunistic walleyes will concentrate around any type of structure that attracts bait fish regardless of whether it is man-made or naturally occurring. Docks provide a current break that attracts these bait fish…
