fishy business web.jpg (31618 bytes)On board with Fishy Business:

7/12/06: Members from Indiana Walleye.com joined Captain Steve from Fishy Business Guide Service out of Meinke marina on Lake Erie. Captain Steve did one heck of a job, keeping us on fish, especially due to the conditions. Even with heavy rain and wind we got this nice group of walleye. I also would highly recommend his guide service.

koonsman2 web.jpg (29889 bytes)John Koonsman gets a 4.8lb walleye

I get a call the other day, and it's John Koonsman from Hoosier Angler magazine. He is almost out of breath and say's he has just landed a walleye out of his local lake, John was amazed to get this walleye of this size, due to the fact that they haven't stocked the lake for 10 years. John asked if it was possible that the walleye could be reproducing in the lake? I said it was possible, or that maybe it was transplanted by another angler. John being a good sportsman put the walleye back, hoping that it will help in the local walleye reproduction. Visit John's web page to check out his magazine.  http://www.hoosierangler.com/

Way to go John, I appreciate your conservation efforts... Doug Burkhead

Back at it in 2006, Jimmy Lang is putting his customer's on walleye at Brookville Reservoir. Just ask Jamie Duke from Cincinnati, Ohio. "Yep, it's true.  I got on Jimmy's boat this morning not knowing what the heck a "hanger" was.  OH BOY, did I learn quick.  Jimmy showed me that patience is just as important as presentation.  I couldn't have done it without you Jimmy and thank you for a truly outstanding outing.  It WAS the perfect day.  I actually felt bad out there because I didn't see anyone else reeling them in (but only for a split second) Ha! Ha!
I went out today to show my in-laws from Cleveland that there are other places to catch fish other than Erie,  man did Jimmy prove those boogers wrong.  
     Thanks Jimmy - Duke  5/24/06    Contact Jiggin Jim

Thanks to everyone

94155c30.jpg (53260 bytes)Another fun filled outing was had by all. If you wonder if Indiana Walleye members know how to have a good time, let's see what they have to say:



A special thanks to both Mr & Mrs Eyecatcher for all the campground arrangements as well as to the rest that worked very hard to feed the masses.  Jimmy, thanks for running the tournament.  We had a blast   ...   a very enjoyable day on the water.  And as usual, we learned a few more lessons.  - Gregg & Heidi Stauffer

Yes the outing was a blast.  I just wanted to say thanks to everyone involved in making it such a good weekend.  I am hoping to fish some more of the tournaments and make some more fishing buddies.  It was very nice meeting all of you and look forward to fishing with everyone again sometime.  Thanks - Devin


What a great weekend!  I had a great time seeing old friends and meeting new ones.  My partner enjoyed meeting everyone and was amazed by the open friendliness of the entire weekend.  I too want to thank everyone that had a hand in organizing the weekend from the tourney  to the camping and especially all the food preparation.  For all that were not able to make the outing, make a note for next year that this is a weekend you dont want to miss.  Thanks again for a great weekend!!!   Bej

Everyone had a blast........ Thanks guys for going.

Doug Burkhead



   APRIL 22,  BASS LAKE OPEN, team tournament was held at the public access site on the west end of the lake just east US highway 35 and state rd 10. 

   With very windy conditions, only one team managed to bring in a limit of 6 walleye. The team of Jimmy Lang and Rick Systma using bottom bouncers and floaters, tipped with live bait, managed to work the strong winds to their advantage. Their 6 fish weighed in at 5.58 lbs and was good enough to get them first place and $500.00.


   Second place went to the team of Mike Rhoades and Bob May, who brought 5 fish to the scales to weigh 5.02 lbs. They received $150.00 for their 2nd place finish, but also won the Big Fish weight with a walleye that weighed 1.53 lbs, which paid them an additional $250.00.
