Posted July 1, 2015
Note: This article was authored by Jim Cunningham who is a staff writer for Jason Mitchell Outdoors. Anglers often debate the merits of soft plastics versus live bait. When temptation is necessary to coax difficult walleye into biting, good live bait often trumps soft plastics but what many walleye anglers have discovered is that soft plastics can often work as good or better than live bait for some applications.

As we enter a new open water fishing season, it's good to get some thoughts together regarding changes in fishing techniques and fishing ideas.

Planning ahead is important to the success of any fishing outing. For the weekend warrior with time constraints, it is even more imperative that preparation "rituals" are strictly adhered to.
