Successful walleye anglers learn from the past and look to the future as they fine-tune fish-catching tactics for each day on the water.

This week on an all-new episode of Lindy Legendary Fishing Tackle’s Fish Ed TV, host Jon Thelen continues the tradition of blending old with new as he tackles walleyes in a pair of classic spring and summertime scenarios.

In the first segment, Jon heads to Wisconsin’s legendary Lake Winnebago system, where the post-spawn migration has just begun.

Years of guiding have taught Jon that not all walleyes spawn at the same time or move together in one massive school. Instead, waves of fish arrive and depart prime spawning areas at different times.

So instead of setting up shop amongst throngs of fellow fishermen gathered in community holes, Jon skips one step ahead to catch the leading edge of the outbound walleye exodus as it descends on main-lake reef tops.

In the second segment, Jon pays homage to one of walleye fishing’s greatest inventions — the Lindy Rig.

As he squares off against summertime walleyes, Jon shares a boatload of time-tested tricks for using these versatile live-bait delivery systems to their full advantage — such as using drift socks to slow your presentation on windy days.

To catch all the action, tune in this Saturday at 8:30 a.m. Central on FOX Sports Wisconsin and FOX Sports North.

In other news, the North Dakota Game and Fish Department has finished evaluating fish spawning and habitat across the state.

Lake Sakakawea received high marks for stellar numbers of yearling walleyes and perch, according to fisheries management section leader Scott Gangl.

“We had a good hatch of perch in 2014, and our guys were still seeing a lot of those in the nets this year,” Gangl said. “Our walleye catch was above average with a combination of stocking and natural reproduction.”
