Check out the Advanced Walleye Systems series from In-Fisherman. Its a three part series and it's very informative.

I agree with hip hop. The In-fisherman crew has put together a great three book series that offers a lot of good information.

I guess I'm old school. Some of my favorites are "Lunkers Love Nightcrawlers" I guess it's in print again by the folks of Fishing Facts Magazine.

Also any of books by the late great Buck Perry would be high on my list. Like,"SPOONPLUGGING - YOUR GUIDE TO LUNKER CATCHES" or the"BUCK PERRY'S GUIDELINES TO FISHING SUCCESS" series. I learned a lot from his books and via my dad who attented a couple of his on the water week long seminars. Oh spoonplugs....man I caught a lot of fish on them. Buck's fish catching formula of Speed + depth control = catching fish has stuck with me over the years.

Do an internet search and you'll likely find what your looking for.

This isn't a book or video, but if you want to get educated real fast you should consider hiring a guide one of the first days you're there. Pick his brain and ask him to show you a lot of spots - most of them are good about that, as long as you don't whip out a gps and start punching in coordinates. It's a great way to get started and pointed in the right direction. Just make sure you hire the guide for one of the first days you're there, not one of the last, so you get the benefit of what you learn for the whole trip.

I've never went with a guide before but I was thinking about doing that for an upcoming trip to Cass.

      Private landowners interested in learning more about managing their woodlands for habitat and income can attend a low-cost workshop and field tour from 8 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday, May 6, at the Cohasset Community Center at 3rd St. NW, Cohasset. The Itasca County Private Woodlands Committee is hosting the workshop with assistance from the Department of Natural Resources Cooperative Forest Management (CFM) program. The workshop aims to educate landowners about timber management and how to thoughtfully and purposely harvest trees to create better wildlife habitat and generate income from a timber sale. Woodland owners can also learn about options for enrolling in a tax incentive program to reduce property taxes. The day will begin indoors with a series of educational sessions about managing forests to benefit a variety of wildlife, working with a consulting forester to write a stewardship plan, the mechanics of a timber sale, and how to contract with a qualified logger. After lunch, participants will board busses for an afternoon tour of different sites to see first-hand the differences in unmanaged and managed timber, and previously cut timber in various stages of regeneration. “Our last workshop this winter in Palisade had over 100 attendees and we are anticipating strong interest in the Grand Rapids area, too,” said Grand Rapids area CFM Forester, Josh Donatell. “Over the last 20 years, there has been a decline in timber harvest from private lands. This program helps restore lost habitat on private land as well as promote a more stable supply of wood and fiber for the timber industry.” Pre-registration is required. The $20 cost includes lunch and field tours. Participants should dress appropriately for outdoor weather and wear sturdy shoes or boots. Anyone interested in attending or registering can contact Josh Donatell by email at josh.donatell@state.mn.us, or by phone at 218-328-8912. An agenda can be viewed online at www.dnr.state.mn.us/woodlands/workshop.html.   Discuss below - to view set the hook here.
