    Multispecies Systems That Catch Fall Pike

    by Doug Stange



    Not one to claim spring-chicken status any more, and in all the entervening years having seen most of what the pike world has to offer, I have settled on several straightforward strategies to catch the big bad boys during the autumn parade.

    Even when I drive to a pike heaven like Rainy Lake, a Canadian Shield lake on the Minnesota-Northwest Ontario border, I usually begin with tactics that allow me to test the waters for the happening fish of the moment. Could be pike, but could also be walleyes, and at times smallmouth bass. Then I tinker ...

    Hit the salad bar for consistent late summer walleyes.

    Dr. Jason Halfen


    Conventional wisdom calls for walleyes to be found in cool, shallow water during spring and fall, and lurking in deeper water during the heat of summer and the dead of winter.

    However, this binary distribution of walleye locations is far too simplistic; indeed, modern electronics and contemporary presentations have worked in tandem ...

    Catch-and-release becomes common practice

    DOUG LEIER North Dakota Game and Fish Department



    As a kid growing up in North Dakota a few decades ago, I don’t recall the concept of catch-and-release fishing, let alone the intentional practice. “Eaters” were kept because that’s why we were fishing.

    Walleye Fishing During Algae Blooms

    by Dan Johnson

    Algae blooms are a fact of life this time of year on lakes across the Walleye Belt. Though dreaded by many anglers, they can create opportunities for some of the season’s finest fishing for all sizes of walleyes. Best of all, you don’t need to be a night owl or brave foul weather to pull walleyes from beneath the green curtain. You just need sunscreen and shades, because some of the fastest action occurs on calm seas under scorching sunny skies.

    Veteran North Woods guide Jeff Sundin has been chasing summer walleyes across central and northern Minnesota for three decades. His fishing grounds include rivers and ...

    Patterns That Find Late Summer Walleye

    by Cory Schmidt




    You have to admire the optimism of statements like, “There’s no such thing as a bad time to go fishing,” even if it’s not necessarily accurate in the sense of fantastic versus difficult times to catch walleyes.

    I appreciate the opportunity to fish for the palliative effects of the experience. But I’m mostly here to catch fish, and August walleye fishing comes with challenges. In my guiding days years ago, the August calendar always filled in with folks who subscribed to the notion that hot, late-summer weather and biting bugs somehow translated to biting ...
