That’s a good way to set up a buddy: Here — catch!
A mild-ish winter with almost no snow rare in ND, but that’s what happened around Devils lake this winter, and…
Might be the first ever catfish (bullhead) imitator blade bait:
> …walleyes’ pure hatred of a little bullhead called the willocat. Willocats are hands-down the best walleye bait on the Mississippi where I work full-time as a guide. Two factors keep them from being the perfect bait.
> At about $2 per willocat these little bullheads are extremely expensive bait…the second sting comes from those little horns on the top and both sides of the willocat. Toxins from these horns are amazing.

Tip of the Day
Storing ice electronics for the summer.
Short, sweet, important — from The Technological angler:
> Remove the batteries from your Humminbird units and give them a full charge before they hit the shelf for the summer.
> Store those batteries in your basement and top off their charge in July. They will be ready to go once first ice arrives.

– Mississippi biologist talking about walleye, in the above-linked article about the southern walleye strain.
Definitely throw ’em back — they taste terrible. Or better yet, send them up here and we’ll take care of ’em for ya!
