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!

      Most likely our last trip up this year unless we go up for crappies but i'm running out of weekends. We had another great trip this weekend the fish are so fat this year more than I remember in the past.  Got my old man out for a good walleye bite he had a blast and caught a ton of fish. One day they just attached the bait as it was coming down they would come up and smash. Next day you put in the bottom and not even see the lure on the vex bring up a tad and they would smack it. Fun and a lot of snow hitting yesterday when we left.

      Agreed!!

      Switch to regular Budweiser and they seem to just jump out of the hole. No, seriously the way I improved my landing success through the ice was to go to small treble hooks. One small one on a 6' leader, a weight and Colorado blade above the leader seems to work for me. If you are on the flag right away, you don't risk gut-hooking them. I also recycle my Power Pro musky line and put it on tip ups. Also, I should add that I always  have a jaw-spreader and 8" forceps for quick and easy hook removal.

      Funny...seems like when the Emerald run slowed down up there 4-5 years ago, the fishing followed suit!
    • anyfishwilldo
      they only ran for a couple days.  They have them on the canadian side but its illegal to transport live bait across the border

      Cliff - much more than the 4-6" they were predicting.  It was a tired drive back to Blaine late Saturday night, but would have been a much tougher drive back Sunday.

      Tough to follow Ricks Gilly Gilly, but might as well get it out of the way.... My best one today, was a grind until prime time, then the bite was lights out until 6pm. I couldn't pull myself away from my hole....

      Green was ok for me I used all kinds of baits. Nothing would bite before it got dark. I caught some on plastics, waxies, and minnows were hot. I was in 27-28 feet. It was nice to sit in the house as I normally do not fish in it.

      Nice fish Paul, persistence usually pays off..... What worked to put those good ones on the ice? Any tips on structure, depth, time of day? And of coarse coordinates,
