It’s no secret that walleye can be very active after dark, but there’s a pattern that happens every fall on many water systems where you can encounter some of the best fishing of the year.

Since its introduction, the Salmo Chubby Darter has been considered by many experts, to be the most prolific vertical wobbler ever created. A must-have for any serious ice fisherman, the Chubby Darter is equally effective on Walleye, Perch, Bass, Trout, Crappie and even Pike.

Crappies in the spring and fall can be predictable as to their locations, as they prepare for the spring spawn as well as the fall feed.

Have often heard not to fish memories. When I look back however over my own fishing career, some of my greatest fishing memories involved trolling deep diving crankbaits over deep water. So many situations from mid-summer on where traditional live bait locations and tactics just got tougher.
Large weed covered flats seem to hold walleye particularly through the first half of the summer. These often-large nondescript locations can be often overlooked by anglers who have been preprogrammed to look for structure.
