Books and videos on Walleye fishing, Any favorite picks?

7 posts in this topic

Besides the great information I am getting from here I was wondering if any books or more importantly videos are recommended by the anglers here. I am so excited about the upcomming trip that I am seeing walleyes in my sleep! Thanks

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.

      Definitely have 2 disagree with with u 2. I understand the drive n the worry but if you've fished the csn chain for 10+ years there shouldn't be a worry 2 find a campsite cause you've driven past plenty of them. Also we're in the same boat regardless of the travel distance to fine a campsite. Yes it is nice 2 have a guaranteed spot but since they went 2 paid 2 camp regulation they have taken out a number of campsites so it limits options. ALSO U R WAY WRONG ON SAYING MORE PPL R AT THE PARK NOW. I went last Saturday  (day before father's day) n we seen like 4 or 5 more boats than canoes. It's nice for ppl who don't know the csn chain but it's terrible for the economy.   Fyi. First time I went fishing on the chain I went lake trout fishing on David......... I was 6 weeks old ......... I'm 32 now..... my dad's been fishing the csn chain for 65+ years    P.s. love how there's less pressure=better fishing.

      Hey! Does anyone know any brooks/steams/rivers that would be full of trout? Preferably near lakeville, mn but ill travel!

      Nice fish, Jeff. And good lesson on 1/2 crawlers, Cliff. I'm off the water for a few days with family doings, but should report I've seen a lot of mayflies in Frazer and near the portage. Clouds on the sonar and slicks of the water. I'm guessing it's not the big hatch, but it's providing a lot of food for fish. good luck out there.

      Just got back into town from a slightly too long "vacation" dealing with relatives. Anywho, how has the fishing been on Superior, are the fish local or have they migrated N.E?

      I just bought a new Elite 7TI and the sun cover it came with doesn't really snap on very securely.  I'd say it just rests loosely on the outside.  It won't fall off if I flip it upside down, but it feels like it wouldn't stay on going down the highway or withstand any sort of jarring.  It takes hardly any pressure to pull it off.  Is this normal or is it a defect?  I've never owned a graph with a sun cover so I'm not familiar, but I imagined it would be a lot more snug.

      We will see if Sailorfly is another ask a silly question one hit wonder?

      I have a Lowrance Elite 7 and was curious what lake chip most of you recommend for Lake of the Woods.  The insight pro chip that came with my unit is very basic for up there and was looking for a more detailed chip.  I'm not sure what brands are compatible with the Lowrance and which ones aren't.        Thanks in advance!

      Glad it didn't take a swim. My buddy had one of the cheaper Minnkotas deploy while he was up on plane using the main motor.  Needless to say it was a weak pin in the release system. It was a rental boat so he didn't have to deal with it. Bent the heck out of the stem portion. It was fully modified!   Didnt know now you were still going up to LOTW. Thought you were selling the place. Assuming you don't have the Sportcraft anymore since I don't think you'd put a Minnkota on that. If you still have the Sportcraft I know someone that might be interested in it.    I head up to South end out of Wheelers point tomorrow after work. Up for 2 weeks. Touch base with me if you are coming up or have the Sportcraft still for sale.   Ryan

      Thanks for the information. I believe yours must be different by the sounds of it. Mine looks like the one below. A bolt actually goes through the pin and bolts onto the actual trolling motor and you have to pull the lever completely out to remove it from the boat.
