‘Nother crazy video — ice fishing done backwards…sorta:




1. WI: Fisherman fatally stabbed.

Wow what a tragedy:

> The victim — Peter Kelly, 34, of St. Croix Falls, WI — was fishing on the MN side of the river with another man when they got in a verbal altercation with three men on the WI side of the river, WQOW reports.

‘Eye Candy

Awesome first walleye, on the Detroit River:

Tip of the Day


Via In-Fish:

> “Having light-wire trebles is handy wherever you’re dealing with a lot of snags, and especially when trolling industrial rivers like the Fox in Oshkosh.”

> Sprengel is a big fan of fish-attracting scents such as Gulp! Alive. He’ll experiment with different scents and even tip his crankbaits with scented soft-plastics.

> Most people will use 10-lb Trilene XT for trolling, but Sprengel will often opt for 14-lb Trilene XL [which has more stretch]. The added stretch “is huge when trolling planer boards because it keeps the boards from surging, absorbs the shock of hard strikes, and gives you cushion when a big fish lunges or head-shakes at boatside.”

Quote of the Day


I tend to incorporate bass-style presentations into walleye tactics whenever possible.


Korey Sprengel again. He’s not the only one, but more walleye anglers should do it!


Shot of the Day


Good job Charlie! (via Rainydaze Guide Service)
