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 agree with the others Tommy! I always enjoy your bits of wisdom and humor! Cliff

      They are all coming in from the main lake. Cliff

      We used to camp on hinsdale all the time. There is one spot on the south shore closer to the east end we stayed almost every time. It's got a big rock outcrop on a small point that slopes down to the water. The picnic table and fire ring are in the open up top. Wide open space and a good breeze will keep the bugs off you. Tent site is fairly hidden. That's the best spot we ever found. Only downside is boat parking. I remember tying up on a log off the the side so probably the same site mentioned earlier.  We stayed there a ton when I was younger and never had any bear encounters, but the bear boxes are there for a reason!

      I always wondered,  are the walleyes coming over the dam?   or are they swimming in from Pike?

      Why delete your post?  I actually enjoyed reading that story. Seeing stories like yours is half the reason I like checking out this site (I like to check out all the different lake boards on fishingminnesota).

      Hey, we need a little color and humor and Musky Tom does it best.  
    • TomWehler
      Good info to me even. Cliff you can delete my story n junk. Most people don’t know me round here anymore n for sure the humor of life is of no interest. Under stand only want the facts mama. Just the facts. 😎 I endeavor to persevere.  Beef!

      The ice on the Pike River between the dam and the lake is opening up fast! Should be wide open in a couple of days at the present rate of melt! The DNR will be trapping walleyes soon!!!  The walleyes are already starting to move in! Pike Bay ice is  also starting to deteriorate quickly! Finally starting to look like we may get some open water for the fishing opener! Cliff

      These aren't campsites to bring your Ranger fiberglass or decked-out Lund into. They're better fitted for smaller 14-16 ft alum boats, something you can drag on shore. Though i'm sure you can figure out how to secure something bigger. Cliff is right, most have sandy/pebble shorelines to pull a smaller boat onto. Almost all of them are well-protected from the prevailing WSW wind. You're gonna get wakes rolling into shore from passing boats, though, as it's a pretty well traveled section of the lake.

      I camped at a couple sites a few years ago.  no docks, but most of the sites had a half way decent place to put the boat in.  one had a decent log to tie to.  another I threw a couple anchors out back and was able to tie off to a couple trees to keep the boat close yet off the rocks.
