Lincoln, NE — On Saturday, February 12, professional angler Johnnie Candle will present an all new Walleye University.

Johnnie is coming off his best season yet.  This year, along with his tournament partner Dave Noble, Candle was named a National Team Championship All American and was crowned the MWC World Walleye Champion by winning the MWC Championship event in Prairie Du Chein this past October.  He is excited to share many of the techniques that helped him earn these titles.

This 8-hour class deals with fine points of jig fishing, live bait rigging, spinners, and crank baits all before lunch.  After a lunch break, building a fishing game plan and targeting trophy walleye will be discussed.  The day will end with talk of what’s new and exciting in walleye catching tackle.  There will be plenty of time for specific questions as well.

“Sharing knowledge is a big part of professional angling,” says Candle, “and it’s very rewarding. I have travelled nearly coast to coast to fish for walleye, and the techniques that I have learned during those travels are taught in this school.”

Walleye University was first introduced in Bismarck, ND during the spring of 2000. It was such a big hit that it was decided to take the show on the road. Since Bismarck, the seminar has been presented to hundreds of walleye anglers in eight different states. Stops this year include: Minot, ND, Appleton, WI, Billings, MT, St. Cloud, MN, and Rapid City, SD.

This year, as part of the Scheels Walleye University, special guest Dave Noble will be sharing his insight on putting together winning walleye strategies.  Noble has been Johnnie’s MWC tournament partner for two years now.  In that time the team has amassed four top ten finishes, two MWC Championship births, an All American finish in the National Team Championship and won the 2010 MWC World Walleye Championship. 

“There is no other place to learn this much about walleye fishing in one day,” Candle says, “and the tips and tricks learned at the Walleye University will make you a better fisherman. You will learn the tactics to deal with those tough days on the water and make every fishing trip more successful.”

Scheels Walleye University will be held at Holiday Inn SW, 2500 Tamaric Ridge in Lincoln on Saturday, February 12, 2011. It begins at 8:30 am and runs until 5:00 pm. Every person in attendance will receive a package that includes a printed version of the Scheels Walleye University and a $10 gift card from Scheels. Please pre-register, as seating is limited. The cost of the school is $50.  Register at Scheels Customer Service in Lincoln or by calling 402-420-9000. Registration forms are also available online at scheels.com/lincolnevents.
