I am a guest speaker Scheels Walleye University 2010 March 6 and April 17


Scheels Walleye University is returning again this year with all new formats.  In 2010 Johnnie Candle will again teach as much walleye catching as he possibly can in an 8 hour day.  Walleye University A to Z starts with the 4 building blocks of walleye fishing; jig fishing, live bait rigging, spinner fishing and crankbaits.  Walleye University When, Where, and How tackles the seasonal patterns associated with walleye fishing in lakes, rivers, and reservoirs.  On top of this, there will be two all new sections to each WU. 


Monster Walleye will focus on the ins and outs of catching the hogs.  Not only will we discuss the hottest bites in the country to catch a 10 pounder, but tactics and tips will be shared on how to catch the largest fish in any given system.  Another all new section will be Hot Trends for 2010.  In this segment you will learn all about the latest and greatest gear in the walleye world.


The last new twist for 2010 is the guest speakers.  At each University, there will be a guest speaker sharing their expertise.  These are listed below with the Scheels Walleye University schedule.  “One thing that was missing in years past was the local flavor,” states Candle.  “This year we can offer some tips for fishing close to home.”

Fun Stuff


If you would like to see a DrDepth depth and bottom hardness map of some structure, you can log a chart, copy the file to a CD, and mail it to (the logged charts too big to email)



Doctor Sonar

40 County Road 20

Minnetrista, MN 55359


Include an email address and I will send the color map and a map for your Lowrance by email.

This is a good way to see how DrDepth creates maps on structure you understand.


New Product Review


LakeMaster has new products for Lowrance and Humminbird for 2010.

LakeMaster 2010 map cards now display in the HDS models using the shaded relief.

The Humminbird map cards don’t have this feature but have other features like the ability to change colors of different depth areas.
