As a young boy growing up in the Loess Hills of Iowa, I was naturally drawn to the outdoors. With most of my free time spent hunting or fishing, I developed a passion for whitetails.

Winter Time Walleye

IMG950243With deer season over an most of the bucks still walking around with full racks. One of my favorite things to do is fish the Missouri River for jumbo walleye.  This past weekend my uncle roger an I hit the river for our first time this year. Roger has been instrumental in my love for the outdoors. When I was young he took me fishing an hunting an taught me woodman skills that I would never of been able to learn without him. Needless to say last weekend was a blast.

We were on the water shortly after daylight. It was a beautiful morning with light winds. The only draw back was that it was cold I mean COLD!!! The lines of our poles were freezing up along with the eyes of our poles. With the conditions being as they were we finally found a hole with some fish. After catching a smallmouth bass and a few channel cats, roger caught four walleye. With me not even having a bite. So going back to my youth I started watching him an figured out that I was moving my jig to slowly an with that slight change I was able to catch four walleye myself.

IMG950242That afternoon the wind started to blow very hard an it was bitter cold so we went home with our limit of walleye,one smallmouth an a few catfish.  The time I spend with my uncle means more to me than the amount of fish we catch but a limit of eyes is a bonus… I hope everyone has someone in there life that has been that instrumental in your devolpment as an outdoorsman/outdoors women. Next week I’m heading to South Dakota to do a little ice fishing, I’ll have more than, good luck out there and stay safe! – Zac
