Best deadstick setup, Things walleye fishermen say, Midwinter panfish tricks

And now one of those moments that doesn’t just happen:

> On the day of his passing, [his son] Jerry Olsen dropped a fishing line for his dad on the ice of Potato Lake. He said it was a gesture his dad adopted, in honor of a good friend and fishing buddy who had died.

> Suddenly, Sonny’s line had a bite. Jerry thought it was a “de-baiter,” his dad’s term for a fish that got away with the bait, unscathed. But it wasn’t, and Jerry’s son, who was fishing with him, set the hook hard to “cross its eyeballs,” another one of Sonny’s favorite lines. Out of the hole came a 27″, 7-lb walleye.

> “I started crying, and said ‘Thanks dad,'” Jerry Olsen said, because he hadn’t had a bite in 4 or 5 days out on the ice. It was his dad’s way of saying everything would be okay…..


Brett McComas is the main man for Target Walleye He was discovered in Brainerd, MN after years of wondering how in the heck people break into the fishing biz. He’s in it now, but still can’t answer that question…. Brett is one of those guys who majored in marketing, only because there was no such thing as a “fishing degree” at the time…. Get him at
