Transitioning Tactics for Transitioning Seasons

Transitioning Tactics for Transitioning SeasonsBy Gary Parsons and Keith Kavajecz Every year walleye fishermen across the country go through a very visible transition. In early spring it can be pretty hard to recognize your buddy fishing right next to you. Chances are he will be bundled from head to toe in a parka, bibs, hat and gloves. A few weeks later, he may appear about 20 pounds lighter, as he will now be fishing with bare hands and... Read More

Take Control of Walleyes

Take Control of WalleyesBy 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... Read More

Move Out To Jig Pigs

Move Out To Jig PigsBy Gary Parsons and Keith Kavajecz If you’d like to catch big walleyes, (and don’t live near Lake Erie) and are bummed out because the walleyes just finished spawning and you think the bite is going to stink, you need to keep reading!For years, a belief in the walleye world was that after fish spawned in the spring the larger fish wouldn’t bite right away. Over time we have found out that that isn’t necessarily the case... Read More

Late Winter Bites

Late Winter BitesBy Gary Parsons and Keith Kavajecz There are hundreds of lakes to catch walleyes on in the winter, but in February the bite traditionally slows down on a lot of them. This isn't to say that the bite is non-existent, but it usually gets tougher.There are a few exceptions to this rule. If you are looking to take a late winter vacation to a walleye destination, you have several options to consider. The one thing you... Read More

Down and Out for Walleye

Down and Out for WalleyeBy Gary Parsons and Keith Kavajecz Football and walleye fishing are two of our passions, and there are a lot of common themes between them. It begins with preparation and studying the opponent. As game time approaches, last minute changes in strategy are made based on factors such as weather.Trolling for walleyes is like a quarterback spreading the receivers out, leaving options for a short pass or going long. Once... Read More

Icing Prime Time Walleyes

Icing Prime Time Walleyes By Gary Parsons and Keith Kavajecz Not long after you put your hunting gear away for the year, the lakes begin to glaze over with the first layer of ice. If you stop down at the local watering hole, you are likely to hear someone mention that they drove past a lake and “saw some nut” out on the ice. It never fails. Each year, as soon as the lakes firms up, people begin to get feverish about getting out. As... Read More

Santa Comes to Shanty Town

Santa Comes to Shanty Town By Gary Parsons and Keith Kavajecz It looked like it was going to be a great day for ice fishing. The sun was shining, there was a slight breeze, and from what we had been hearing, the fish were biting! So we packed up the truck and headed out to our favorite lake.We had just parked on “the spot” when we saw something strange in the sky. At first we weren’t sure what to make of it, but as it got closer we... Read More

Artificial Soft Tails…The New Normal for Walleye Fishing

Artificial Soft Tails…The New Normal for Walleye Fishing By Gary Parsons and Keith Kavajecz They say that there is a time and a place for everything. This saying definitely holds true when it comes to fishing. There are some days where the best course of action is to present a walleye with live bait, but time and time again, in fact most of the time, we have found the fish often prefer Berkley Gulp over live minnows and worms.The...

Stick ‘em in September

Stick ‘em in SeptemberBy Gary Parsons and Keith Kavajecz Mother Nature likes to play havoc with the weather this time of year, with hot days and cold nights. Depending on the year, you can also start to see turnover as we transition from summer to fall. This makes the September bite tough for even the best walleye anglers. While some view this time as the live well “half-empty”, we like to view it as “half-full”. This is the time of year we... Read More

Rev Up Lazy Walleyes

Rev Up Lazy Walleyesby Gary Parsons and Keith Kavajecz We like going out to eat at buffets. There are endless choices to put on our plate and we can fill our stomachs to the point of having to loosen up the belt a notch without having to put any work into making the meal! Walleye also like to take advantage of an effortless meal. Right now the lakes are a buffet, full of natural bait like bugs, larvae, and minnows. With such easy... Read More

Dominating the Dog Days Bite

Dominating the Dog Days BiteBy Gary Parsons and Keith Kavajecz It’s hot and the bite’s not. Are you sure about that? Many people think that walleyes become hard to catch in July and August. This isn't true. The walleye aren’t harder to catch, they have just changed their feeding patterns and you need to adjust to them.By this time of year the open water basin bite has begun to occur. On Lake Erie this bite is already happening in April. On... Read More

The Right Place at the Right Time

The Right Place at the Right Time By Gary Parsons and Keith Kavajecz They say that the “early bird catches the worm”. That statement is true, but it is only part of the story. You see, in order to catch the worm, the bird needs to know where to find the worm. The same logic applies to the highly anticipated opening weekend of fishing each spring. You have to know where to find the fish! There are two types of areas we like to fish... Read More
