  1. All seminars go from 6-9pm Freeway Sports Fenton 1/24 , Gander mnt Novi 1/26 , KD outdoors Waterford 2/8 ,Gander mnt Lansing 2/23 ,Gander Saginaw 1/24 , gander mnt Shelbt twnsp 1/24, Gander Taylor 1/27, Gander Toledo 2/21. I really hope I got all these right. Please check Walleye 101 website to double check and see any I missed. These are very informative seminars and best of all FREE! I will be attending all the Novi ones and as many Taylor seminars as possible.

  2. If you start looking at Manistee ,Ludington,and Frankfort. These sharp dropoffs are key areas that hold baitfish, predator fish, and fisherman too. In St Joseph I have an area where it drops off considerably faster than the rest of the area (it is really not a drop off just drops quicker than most the rest of the area). Thats about a three mile circle area that usually has fish. I dont know if that has to do with current though. The best idea is to write down which areas hold fish in which wind direction. Log books suck (especially when you get a triple) but IMHO are worth every bit of trouble. P.s. I must be a sheep too cuz I read that, Great lakes trout and salmon trolling,all five critical concepts walleye books,and a couple others EVERY winter. The key is to try different things and figure out what works in YOUR program.

  3. We finally got out of Franfort last night.Boy was it worth it.Fished by the point along the drop from 125 to 150.The traffic started to clear when the lights went out.Mayhem soon commenced!Tripples and doubles for about two hours straight.First and last fish were our only singles.Ended up 11 for ?.Rigs that were good included blue and green splatterback ace high on 275 copper and DR at 80(20 ft lead),mag wonderbread glow stinger on DR at 78(until our ten year old fish reeler got beat by a king and a downrigger cable and lost my favorite spoon),Green froggy Fishlander at 75.Also very steady producers were green fishcatcher/green or aqua fly at 150 on mag Walker dipsey on 2 setting.I could not buy a hit on a blue bubble spinny(shocking).We were cruising along at a mear 1.8 to 2 mph GPS on both North and South trolls.
