From the article:

Quote: The author's goal for angler readers is to develop a system of positive thinking in the fishing game. He says nothing beats the feeling of leaving the dock "when your heart, head and soul are in alignment ..." and you have a "rock-solid belief that 'Yep, today we are gonna get 'em.' "

IMO: My heart and soul are already on the lake, my body and my boat are playing catch up!!!

DTRO,

Does postive thinking still apply when out catfishing with no luck and its 3:00 a.m. and a hour and half drive in front of you grin.gif.

This is when I feel most down in the dumps. But!! On Monday morning when I start to read post in catfish forum, my positive attitude comes right back into play. cool.gif

This has been my weekly cycle as of late!!!

Um. Allow me to interject that the point of fishing is to have fun. If it's not fun, then do something that doesn't involve too much heat or sandflies or whatever stimulus is bothering you.

We don't get paid to do this and it doesn't have to be a death march.

I know that most of the time I go out fishing I dont expect to catch anything unless i had caught them a day or two before. (Except for my one secret spot in MN.) If you have low expectations you cant be disappointed. But I agree fishing is can be very relaxing, and helps you forget about the daily grind of life that can get you down. It makes my weeks go by much faster knowing I will be able to get out fishing sometime during the week and the weekends.

      I catch saugers in rivers or in lakes with large river tributaries - they seem to be more of a river fish. Given there aren't big feeder rivers into V, i'm not surprised by lack of saugers. I've never caught one in V, nor have i heard of anyone.

      From the MN DNR-   The walleye is native to most of Minnesota, flourishing in large, shallow, windswept lakes with gravel shoals, such as Mille Lacs, Leech, Winnibigoshish, Upper and Lower Red Lake, Lake of the Woods and Lake Vermilion. It is also native to many smaller lakes and steams in all of Minnesota's major drainages. Because of its popularity as a game and food fish, the walleye was introduced to many other lakes, where it has become established. The walleye now occupies about 1,700 lakes totaling 2 million acres and 100 warm-water streams totaling 3,000 miles.

      I have a few different rods. The one i was originally referring to i am using for crankbaits.  i have a jig and worm rod as well. I have mastered the cast, just trying to learn more about leaders. Thanks! Do you recommend i use 17# test for my worm and jig rod?

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff
