I suppose some of you might get tired of my saying that I am not sponsored by anyone, and then I turn around and promote In-Fisherman products, publications, shows, etc. If you do get tired of that, sorry, I am going to do it again. All I know is for a long, long time In-Fisherman has been unparalleled in teaching North American anglers about fish and fishing. They blend science with a lot of time on the water by a lot of darned good anglers. If you read and study their “stuff”, you will catch more and bigger fish. It has worked for me.
Some of you by now have probably already scene In-Fisherman‘s 2012 Walleye Guide. If not, you might want to pick up a copy, https://store.intermediaoutdoors.com/products.php?product=2012-Walleye-Guide .
Yes, you might even find a story in there written by “yours truly”. I was asked to write a story summarizing the current state of fisheries science as it relates to walleye regulations. Wait, there’s more! That is not the only story in this year’s Walleye Guide with some Nebraska connections. There is a story about catching walleyes from flooded brush. A number of reservoirs across “walleye country” have experienced rising water levels in recent years that have flooded acres and acres of terrestrial vegetation that grew when reservoirs were low for a number of years. That scenario absolutely describes the situation on Nebraska reservoirs like McConaughy and some Nebraska anglers like Rob Rowland of North Platte have been on the “cutting edge” of developing presentation techniques to get into the jungle and get walrus-sized walleyes back out. Pick up a copy, you will want to read about that and a whole lot more. I will study the 2012 Walleye Guide from cover to cover before I am done!
