April’s edition of North American Fisherman reminds anglers to “Keep America Fishing” by offering a fresh look at traditional strategies. From tips on catching more walleyes year ‘round to part nine of the Fish Response System (FRS) on properly classifying lakes, the April 2013 issue will continue to keep anglers on the cutting edge. North American Fisherman is the official member-exclusive publication of the North American Fishing Club, the premier community for anglers and outdoor enthusiasts.
In “Artificials Only” Dan Johnson, helps us “kick” the live bait habit for more walleyes throughout season. “Crankbaits and soft baits aren’t new, through the innovative insight from NAFC members—forged on the unforgiving proving grounds of professional guiding and competitive angling—brings a whole playbook to the walleye game,” explains Johnson.
Other articles include: “Unnatural Attraction” by David Hart where he argues sometimes matching the hatch isn’t always the best approach when trying to convince finicky trout to eat. And “Pack a Punch!” by Mark Hicks, explains why an assortment of punch baits need to be in your arsenal to effectively extract bass from dense vegetation.
