Walleye University

6 posts in this topic

Fishing Pros Johnnie Candle and Jim Carroll will walk you through the tips and tricks of Walleye Fishing. Both anglers are top touring pros on the Professional Walleye Trail (PWT) and full-time fishing promoters. Johnnie Candle, National Professional Anglers Association (NPAA) #42, began his fishing career as a guide. Over the past 19 years, he has spent hundreds of days on the water with his clients. He has guided on Lake Erie, the lower Niagara River, Lake Sakakwea, and for the past 6 years on North Dakota’s Devils Lake. Jim Carroll, NPAA #13, is a twelve year tournament veteran, and currently ranked 14th in the World Walleye Ranking (WWR) of the top 200 professional walleye anglers. Both Johnnie and Jim are charismatic and entertaining public speakers that are deeply committed to the sport-fishing industry.

“Sharing our knowledge is a big part of professional angling,” says Jim Carroll, a veteran on the Professional Walleye Trail and a national championship qualifier, “and it's very rewarding. We travel all over the country to fish for walleye, and we take the techniques that we have learned and teach them in this school. Nothing is more gratifying to us than meeting up with fishermen who have attended Walleye University, and hearing about their successful fishing trips using information learned at one of our schools.”

Walleye University was first introduced in Bismarck, ND during the spring of 2003. It was such a big hit that the duo has decided to take the show on the road. Since Bismarck, the pros have presented this seminar to hundreds of walleye anglers in six different states. Stops this year include Billings, MT • Fargo, ND • Bismarck, ND • Appleton, WI and Mankato, MN.

“There is no other place to learn this much about walleye fishing in one day,” Candle says, “and the tips and tricks learned at the Walleye University will make you a better fisherman. We give you the info on how to deal with those tough days on the water and make every fishing trip more successful.”

Johnnie and Jim’s seminar is comprehensive and covers walleye fishing from A to Z. The topics include walleye rods and reels, jig fishing, live bait rigging, spinners, crankbaits, trolling systems, boat control, marine electronics and more. There will also be plenty of time for questions and answers.

Walleye University was EXCELLENT! John and Jim put on a good seminar. They said they'll be back next year with a different topic, which I will surely attend. Highly recommend it!

      I was thinking the same thoughts, I saw the pond by my house locked up, figure someone will be sitting in front of the courthouse before you know it..

      I have to add that my buddy has had the Eskimo propane auger and loves it, he has a season and half using it and it hasn't given him any problems.

      I've had an Eskimo Shark for a few years and I love it, I'm not a fan of the aluminum handles on it, they have given me an issue or two but customer service is outstanding. Can't comment on the EVO, other than  I think they are gimmicky, but I love their six sided insulated hub. Works great for my family trips or just going out by myself. Sets up easy and there is a ton of room.

      Vexilar makes many "fish finders" what model do you have. Is it a flasher, a graph, WiFi type. Will help in knowing what your looking at when running your finder.

      brianfisher, Welcome to Fishing Minnesota! Using a flasher in open water is way more difficult then using a regular depth finder! It takes a lot of study time to really learn to recognize what it is showing you! Basically anything marked even slightly off of the bottom is likely a fish unless there is a lot of floating weeds etc. in the water column. I suggest that you get out on the ice with your friend this winter and use his flasher through the ice. You will very quickly learn to adjust the gain settings and learn to recognize fish under a controlled depth condition! If possible have someone that is familiar with his flasher model go with you and show you how to operate it. Once you learn to read a flasher your fish catching rate will go way up! Cliff
