It won't be too long now before the sounds of lakes and rivers making ice is replaced by the sounds of melting ice, signaling another soft-water fishing season's on the way.
For those of you like me who like trolling, a new book out by one of the best in the business, and especially on Lake Erie, details techniques used by several big-name pros, that, if you follow their advice, will ensure your catch rate will climb this season, guaranteed.
All that information needed to efficiently and effectively fish for walleyes using modern‐day trolling systems is now available in the book “Walleye Trolling: Tackle, Techniques and Systems Used by North America’s Best Walleye Tournament Pros and Guides,” by Curtis Niedermier and Capt. Ross Robertson.
“Walleye Trolling” begins with an introduction to basic trolling equipment and the strategies for precise fishing; transitions to in‐depth chapters covering 11 of the most popular trolling systems; and finishes with advanced lessons on trolling in current, boat control and using electronics.
“Walleye Trolling” also offers readers a behind‐the‐scenes look at what it’s like to travel across North America as a professional angler, straight from expert sources like Al Lindner, Gary Roach, Tom Keenan, Bruce Samson, Dave Csanda, Mike Gofron, Brett King, Joe Okada, Johnnie Candle, Mark Brumbaugh, Chip Cartwright and Ron Levitan Jr.
Nearly every walleye angler has wondered if they could make it in th big leagues, and that look provides some insight into whether they can indeed stand the 16-hour days of pre-tournament scouting on the water, the hundreds of days in motel rooms or trailers, and the thousands of dollars spent trying to reach the pinnacle of success that the pros above have.
They share not only their insights into fishing techniques and tournament history, but also their favorite road-‐trip and fishing stories. Many of these stories are told to the public for the very first time, only in “Walleye Trolling.”
“Walleye Trolling” (soft cover, 160 pages) is available immediately at BigWaterFishing.com for $24.95. It can soon be found at sporting goods retailers across the Midwest.
