Walleye Seminars! In addition to the Lake of the Woods Tourism booth, Director of Tourism, guide and tournament angler Joe Henry will be giving seminars on Thursday and Friday of the show that will surely enable you to catch more walleyes and put more walleye tools into your tool belt. The seminars are titled, “Crawler Harnesses for Walleye Success” and “Getting Back to the Basics for Walleye Success”.
Joe has mastered fishing with crawler harnesses and will tailor the seminar to many aspects of success using crawler harnesses with emphasis of course on Lake of the Woods. “Way back when I was fishing as an amateur on the Professional Walleye Trail, I noticed regardless of what body of water we were fishing, how many anglers were pulling crawler harnesses for success. I started utilizing this technique into my arsenal and now pulling crawler harnesses is one of my most effective ways to consistently catch walleyes. I plan to share everything I can to help anglers put more walleyes into the boat.”
As far as the basics of fishing walleyes go, there are so many ways to catch walleyes these days, sometimes the most effective ways are getting back to the basics. There are some subtle but important nuances to the basics that can make all the difference in the world in talking putting more walleyes in the boat.
The seminar times are:
Thursday at 4pm and 7:30pm
Friday at 4:30pm and 7:30pm
In addition to a wide variety of seminars, the show will feature other destinations, campers, trailers, fish houses, fishing equipment and more.
