Take Control of Walleyes
By: Gary Parsons and Keith Kavajecz
While current and wind can make for a great bite, they can also be a nightmare for trying to position the boat. Being in complete control when we are chasing walleyes hasn’t always been easy. This type of fishing was very tiring and hands-on in the past. It meant putting the anchor out and then having to toss it out again for a slight adjustment. It meant having a foot on the pedal of the bow mount trolling motor at all times and constantly making adjustments to the speed of the kicker motor. There were even days we had two drift socks out and still couldn’t go slow enough for our presentation to work! Continue Reading

Icing Bay de Noc Gold
By: Larry Smith
Ice is here! As many of you know, I am an absolute ice fishing maniac. As the temps plummet outside, my blood starts boiling with anticipation for what is arguably my favorite fishing season of all. I’m usually one of the first guys out on the hard water; using a lifetime of experience to safely assess the ice conditions and get on fish that haven’t been bothered in a month or more. Early ice is probably the most productive of the season, so I try to get out and start punching holes as soon as conditions safely permit. Crappies, bluegills, perch, pike; you name it. I love catching all of them on Wisconsin’s numerous fine ice fisheries. I am, however, a walleye guy and there is one place just north of the Wisconsin border that is probably one of the finest trophy walleye ice fisheries around: Bay de Noc. Continue Reading
Fishing Bago Round Two
By: Kyle Sorensen
There are two activities that I consider to be the most tranquil and fulfilling experiences I have each year while enjoying the outdoors. One, of course, is being up north. The other has sparked the topic for this article. It goes without saying, I love fishing on the Winnebago System. The Lake Winnebago System can be VERY challenging, yet it can be VERY rewarding. Each year I am asked if there is a night bite on the system. I’m here to tell you there is! Continue Reading

Ahh yes… It’s that time of year again. Finally! Jack Frost shows himself more and more as I look outside to see his unique designs, carefully placed throughout my windows. The boat seats are caked with frozen dew as I step into the boat for one of the last voyages of this open water season. The boat’s days are numbered for this year; it’s bittersweet. Continue Reading
Washington State Record Walleye
The new Washington state record walleye was caught by John Grubenhoff and weighed 20 pounds and 5 ounces
There is a new state record walleye for the state of Washington, and it’s a whopper of a fish. Last Friday, John Grubenhoff rushed home from work to fish for a few hours on Lake Wallula. With a cold front coming in, John had a good feeling about fish biting and has had a lot of success with this type of weather. Soon after arriving, his thoughts were confirmed when he hauled in a 14 pound hen and smaller male. He then went on to catch his third fish on the night, a 20 pound 5 ounce hen walleye that would break Washington’s previous state record. Continue Reading
