Scheels Walleye University 2011

 Scheels Walleye University is returning again this year with all new formats. In 2011 Johnnie Candle will again teach as much walleye catching as he possibly can in an 8 hour day. Walleye University A to Z starts with the 4 building blocks of walleye fishing; jig fishing, live bait rigging, spinner fishing and crankbaits. Walleye University When, Where, and How tackles the seasonal patterns associated with walleye fishing in lakes, rivers, and reservoirs. On top of this, there will be three new sections to each WU.

Building a Winning Game Plan walks you through the planning for a day or a week on the water. Using the strategies of professional anglers, you will be able to plan and execute a fishing trip with no problem after this session.

Bigger is Better will focus on the ins and outs of catching the hogs. Not only will we discuss the hottest bites in the country to catch a 10 pounder, but tactics and tips will be shared on how to catch the largest fish in any given system.

Another all new section will be What’s Hot. In this segment you will learn all about the latest and greatest gear in the walleye world. From Side Imaging to the newest hooks, lures and colors, it is all there.

Walleye University first started in Bismarck ND in April of 2000. At that time, Dan Bonham, a ND Walleye Guide worked with Johnnie to get the ball rolling. Since then, the school has undergone several changes and had many guest speakers. This year is no exception as Corey Heiser and Candle’s tournament partner Dave Noble will be sharing their secrets as well.

I loved this class last year and plan on taking it again in Devils Lake.  Looking forward to the opportunity to learn from the pro. 

Take a kid hunting instead of hunting for your kid.

First I am a Dad, then a husband, then a hunter.  Sometimes I get the husband and hunter mixed up, but luckily my wife remembers what order they should be in. :-)
