Bye, Bye Walleye In-Sider...

22 posts in this topic

First the PWT, now the Walleye In-Sider mag is following in its footsteps. Another sad day as I really did enjoy that magazine.

Thats a real shame, it was one of the few remaining magazines worth reading, every issue had tons of good information.

That's too bad. When is the last issue?? I'm paid for several years, at least that's what I tried several times to do.

Only problem with In-Fish, Walleye-Insider, ect., is / was their, for lack of better term, Subscription Customer Service. In an attempt to clear up a multiple year subscription gift for myself, my brother and father, and accidental double order (on-line order), I talked to multiple "reps" that had no idea how to remedy the situation, and didn't know the difference between the different magazines (Walleye In-Sider, In-Fisherman, ect). One said there was nothing she could do. Another could see the problem, but didn't know how to change it to what I wanted. Obviously they had another company managing their subscriptions. I talked to one (out of 5) reps that was helpful. Otherwise, the CS was awful. Pretty sure I was talking to folks in the South (not in Baxter/ Brainerd).

Anyways, that's sad, but I'd be first in line to subscribe to anything put out by the Lindners.

That's a drag. I've been a long-time subscriber to the magazine. I look forward to its replacement.

I'll miss it for sure. Berkley Gulp must have dropped it's sponsorship. That's about the only thing most authors fished with the last couple of years it seemed.

I have nearly all the copies,since it was still in newspaper form backin the late 80's. Sort wish I had every one, lots of great info in them. I bought the first 8yrs of the MN trout stamp prints. great investment. I was looking for that in the walleye stamp.

Darn! I just started my walleye-insider sub this year and really like it. I get In-fisherman already but its a little heavy on bass for me.

What are some other good walleye mag subscriptions?

I guess that explains why I never got a renewal notice for my subscription.

Not sure if you guys have read the FLW Outdoors - Walleye Edition magazine but it is very good as well. Obviously more geared towards the FLW tourney anglers and bodies of water but we still have a 6-8 months a year magazine dedicated to walleyes.

They just sent me a letter asking me to extend my subscription!

Whats up with that?

I will miss it as well but found it to be getting to the point I learned little if anything reading it. It started to seem like stories were recycled and it was more about advertising and pics than good in depth writing. Wich is the norm in this day and age.

Sure would be nice to have a mag that covered up north walleye techniques and waters.

Northlander, you said it, there is so much advertising in the magazines now. I want to read new articles, not have half the magazine filled with advertisements and recycled articles. With that being said, I hate to see the magazine go.

The demise of the PWT is what did the mag in. Without it, they had a hard time filling the pages.

It was good about 10 years ago or so when you got a magazine every month, instead of the multiple-month issues they have now. Even with multiple-month issues they were getting pretty thin. I think I still have my old mags in a box somewhere....
