THE LATEST FROM THE BLOG

02 Aug: Second Half Walleye Tactics

What I relate here has been extracted from years of experience on expansive reservoirs such as those on the Missouri River—most notably Oahe—but applies on any large waterway with long stretches of relatively shallow structure, breaking sharply into deep water.

01 Jul: Tough Time Walley Rigging | In-fisherman Magazine

We’ve all been in situations where we’ve solved the walleye location puzzle, but are struggling to get them to bite. Might be postspawn fish on a point or shoreline break. Fish refuse standard presentations and even favorite rigging wrinkles. But there they are on sonar.

01 Jan: Early Season Perch | In-Fisherman Magazine

Perch location during early season is dependent on where they’re going to spawn. A few primary patters are prevalent in most lakes and reservoirs. Perch run into marshes and sloughs often connected to the main lake via narrow tubes areas, or through a tube area into a shallower, darker lake connected to a clearer one. These areas can be as narrow as a culvert or a bridge area.
