IN-FISHERMAN TV > In each show we take you to three different parts of North America to fish for three different fish species—everything from bass and walleyes, to catfish and carp, sturgeon, muskies, pike, trout, salmon, and panfish like white bass, perch, and crappies, along with near-shore saltwater species like redfish and tarpon. We hope to entertain as we offer solid how-to-fish tricks to help you catch more fish. FOR 2019 > There's timely treatment of show topics—26 shows that play every week of the year.

a little song, a little dance

Last issue in Inside Angles I mentioned the enlightening information in Dr. Keith Jones’s book Knowing Bass, The Scientific Approach to Catching More Fish. With copies no longer available for purchase except through online sources like Amazon, I noted typical pricing running about $100. Reader David Berns wrote to say he checked Amazon Prime and found prices for the book varying from $99 up to $5,032.99. Wow. But then he also reminded me about borrowing the book through a local library—which costs nothing. It was via the Interlibrary Loan system that, in the 1970s, I borrowed many of the books being used to teach fishery science at Iowa State University, along with numerous published fishery papers from around North America. The information helped me start writing about fishery science connections to questions…

Ice Fishing and Walleye Survival Science in Action— While survival of walleyes caught and released during the open-water season has been studied in-depth, little is known about post-release mortality of walleyes released by ice anglers. Researchers recently evaluated post-release survival of walleyes caught and released by ice anglers at Lake Nipissing, Ontario.* Angling was conducted in January and February using active and passive techniques. The active fishing method was jigging with 1/4- to 3/8-ounce Northland Buck-Shot and Macho Minnow spoons and Cabela’s jigheads baited with dead emerald shiners. Spoons had treble hooks. Anglers used medium- to light-power rods with 6-pound-test monofilament. Passive angling methods included tip-ups and setlines with #4 Gamakatsu Octopus and circle hooks baited with wild emerald shiners and weighted with a 1/4-ounce sinker. All hooks in the study were…
