Don’t wait to wade: Experience the simplest of fishing right now

Continually staring at electronics, constantly working a trolling motor remote, and fiddling with batteries are all part of the modern-era fishing experience. But, if you want a change of pace, consider returning to a simpler time. Put your waders in the back seat, grab a dozen worms and a few small jigs, head to that small lake that you drive past every day, and wade along the shoreline.

Tools for the trade for handling pike

Walleye and crappie fishing here is just starting to take off. I’m finding some lakes are totally shut off to walleyes and crappies, but the pike are nuts. Water temperatures are still in the 60s on some lakes, meaning walleye and crappie fishing is yet to happen, but the pike are biting regularly.
