This is a guide for wilderness canoe travelers who want to learn simple and effective methods for catching walleyes. Written by an avid walleye angler with close to 50 years of travel experience in the Boundary Waters Canoe Area Wilderness and Quetico Provincial Park, the book lists the essential fishing tackle to pack for a canoe trip, then shows anglers where and how to fish for wilderness walleyes. It reveals why a simple jig and plastic twister tail combination trumps more expensive and complex fishing methods as the premier wilderness walleye catching bait. Laced with humor and wit, the book adds a new voice to canoe country travel literature. But above all, it is a celebration of the walleye, a fish that’s culturally interwoven with the land and waters of northern Minnesota and northwestern Ontario.
