Is there any publication out there that anyone really gets a lot of inofrmation on targeting walleyes? Most publications talk about a lot of different species (mainly bass) and only once in a while have articles on walleyes. An thoughts?

I receive the Walleye Insider. Some repeat information but I typically take away at least one new idea from every issue.

I like reading the two ice fishing mags that in-fisherman and f+w outdoor sports put out. each one usually has two walleye specific articles with good tips. I like all the articles though b/c you can learn tips on passing the day up until prime time catching pannies and pike. I think this HSOforum is the best info though because you can ask a specific question and get a lot of very useful responses for your situation.

Look into in-fisherman publications they have a series of 4 books or if you prefer cds that cover more then what the average person can digeast in a lifetime. The 4 book series covers seasonal patterns and locations in lakes rivers and resivoirs, prime locations, different presentations from rigging to jigging , from bananas to nuts. Good books and they will help get you on more fish. I especially enjoy them come march and april when not much is going on outdoors. The critical concepts books is what I was thinking of(brain fart)! grin.gif

In addition to Walleye Insider Western Walleye is good as is the FLW Walleye Magazine. In order to get the FLW walleye magazine you have to join FLW outdoors which is about $30 some bucks a year but the magazine is fantastic. I'm not sure how many issues they publish but it is similiar to what Walleye Insider does.

    • I still run my fl8 that I bought in 1996. I don’t need zoom and I have watched many friends with the new fancy locators not see fish under the ice. Not me I catch em. No stinking updates for my fl 8 and my fl 8 has fallen down the stairs more times then me. It still runs I had new brushes put in after I fell on it and smashed the casing. O yeah i fished all day with the smashed casing let’s see the new units do that. It’s fixedand runs perfect. Never notice the noise you guys are talking about as I am to busy catching fish!
    • Does that come with ear plugs to drown out all the noise?
    • Since there isn't a lot of covering ground I just don't need the last 30 seconds on a graph or a GPS map to know I've been sitting in the same spot for the last hour.  My phone is always on me when I need to move and I run navionics.  Half the year I'm in my truck when I'm on the move anyway.  If I'm on a dogsled in the bwca I have a handheld.   I'll stick to the flasher.   I upgraded to a bigger screen with the bird, but I just dont need a ton of features that really only make sense on a moving boat.   Just my two cents.
    • Graphs are nice for fishing in a boat for sure.  They show you the nice big history picture of what has already gone by and gives you a good view of what the changing bottom depths look like as you float around.  Really though, when your fishing in a little hole over the same bottom for an hour or all day. What’s the point?  The important part of a graph for ice fishing is that ¼” or so of edge on the far right and what is happening on it real time.  Which then, is just like a Flasher only giving you real time info and why I went back to one from my graph.   Worley Worley!  😉  
    • Good luck on your hunt, let us know how you do!
    • I have another weekend in me to fish and fight the winds and weather and then the boat will be done for the year.  Guess it is that time of the season but would really love to get another couple outings in but such is life! 
    • who uses flashers now days haha; I'm a helix convert now too, i was hesitant at first as the Lowrance had a LCD screen a few years ago for ice fishing but the lag was unusable, but hbird figured it out. Mapping, flasher screen if wanted, and sonar all in one, its like a smartphone; everything in one.   also, I have not had any interference issues with others using the helix, especially with all of hte chirp setttings
    • Looks like a good time
