Walleye Insider Mag DONE

10 posts in this topic

I got a postcard today stating that "We are sorry to tell you that as of the May/June 2009 issue, Walleye In-Sider magazine has ceased publication." It then states that the remainder of my subscription will be covered by "Game and Fish" mag.

Anyone else get this? What gives??? I like that far better than In-Fisherman. Can anyone say what Game and fish is like?

I'm tempted to ask for my money back.

Walleye In-Sider magazine covered the Pro Walleye Tournament trail. It no longer exists! Nothing to cover, No Magazine!

In-sider was part of In-Fisherman. I do believe.

Yep. Intermedia Outdoors to be exact.

I have no idea. Maybe they are just cutting back on the issues? People have been saying the same thing about the Catfosh In-sider for years. Never seen a card about it though.

To bad if true.

Over the years it covered the PWT, but there was still a lot of regular articles. Oh well...I'm dealing less and less with them, and the Walley In-sider was my last patronage to the organization. Once the Lindners left the organization, it started to fall apart IMO.

Yep it's done...mine is being replaced by MN Sportsman Mag, I'd assume because I'm subscribed to In-Fisherman already.

This is really a bummer. I already have In Fisherman but they are just extending my subscription to it. Hopefully the standard In Fisherman puts more effort and media into Walleyes than before...it kinda slacked and was the reason I liked Walleye Insider so much.

I've been getting more useful fishing tips from Field and Stream than In-Fisherman for the past year. Folding the PWT and scaling back publications and loss of quality... all signs of stress and strain on Intermedia. In fact, when I registered for the 2008 Mobridge SD PWT event, they MANDATED that I subscribe to Walleye Insider, and they cashed my check but never delivered the mag - ever!

In the past year I've let In Fisherman (just product marketers nowadays), MN Sportsman (same junk different year), Outdoor news (all the do is spoil the lakes I'm fishing with "mee-too" fishermen anymore) subscriptions run out - but I kept Field and Stream. Straight talk tips that are new an innovative anyone can do with some very detailed how to's.

I also had GAme and fish a couple years back. Really no different than MN Sportsman in content and quality.

    • IKR! My big decision was if I was going to spend one more day ice Fishing or not?
    • Hey how bout those WILD! Wild beat rival Blackhawks, take over Central Division lead
    • Today is clean house day here. $#@! 
    • Well, if I woulda spent some time in the bichfest forum last night I would've been reminded to make other plans than going to work today. So there coulda been some value there.   Got payroll approved and saw I was on holiday today so I left.    Still not used to having this day off.
    • Packers in the NFC Championship game, Lions in the playoffs, Viking eliminated early. At least you were right about the Bears. 
    • Just a reminder that today (Monday Jan. 16th) is Monday. It is best observed in an individual manner with each of us according it the solemnity we believe it deserves. And keep in mind that Tuesday is coming up.  And then Wednesday. And after that it is Thursday.   Don't look for a point to this post because there isn't one. 
    • 1.16.17 Sunset Lodge Fishing Report   Hello once again from the Northwest Angle!   We're back with another fishing report this week. It was another cold week out on the ice with temperatures below zero for most of the week. We should be out of the cold stretch for a while now and the weather for the next couple weeks is looking really good!   On the Minnesota side, we have our houses on Rabbit Ears, Four Blocks and Little Oak. All have been producing fish. Out at Little Oak, we are fishing in 24-28 feet of water off of structure and out in the mud. At Four Blocks, we are fishing in 22-27 feet of water and have found some very nice slot fish coming up the holes. At Rabbit Ears, we are still in 21-26 and it is still producing buckets of fish consistently. Best colors have been pink and gold tipped with a minnow.   On the Canadian side, the crappie and walleye bite has been very good. Limits of nice crappies have been coming back every day with some being in that 15-16" range. We are fishing in 27-33 feet for those, with small tungsten jigs tipped with a minnow or plastic. Walleyes have been very consistent in 25-30 feet of water on the Canadian side, also. Same jig colors as the US side, gold and pink tipped with a minnow.   Until next week everyone, stay warm and tight lines! Forrest Huset
    • I was just wondering if you had a point, that's all. I guess the answer is no.
