Fargo Sportsmen’s Show this Weekend!

Red River Valley Sportsman's ShowIt’s sportshow season and this time of the year, anglers are excited to talk Lake of the Woods fishing.  Perfect timing to be talking Lake of the Woods at this weekend’s Red River Valley Sportsmen’s show that starts Thursday and runs through Sunday at the Fargodome in Fargo, ND.

Joe Henry, Tommy Skarlis, Red River Valley Sportsman's Show 2019Walleye Seminars!  In addition to the Lake of the Woods Tourism booth, Director of Tourism, guide and tournament angler Joe Henry will be giving seminars on Thursday through Sunday at the show.  These seminars will enable you to catch more walleyes and put more walleye tools into your tool belt on any body of water.  The seminars are titled, “Crawler Harnesses A-Z” and “Top Strategies for Walleye Success”.

Joe has mastered fishing with crawler harnesses and will tailor the seminar to many aspects of success using crawler harnesses with an emphasis of course on Lake of the Woods.  “Way back when I was fishing as an amateur on the Professional Walleye Trail, I noticed regardless of what body of water we were fishing, how many anglers were pulling crawler harnesses for success.  I started utilizing this technique into my arsenal and now pulling crawler harnesses is one of my most effective ways to consistently catch walleyes.  I plan to share everything I can to help anglers put more walleyes into the boat.”

As far as the basics of fishing walleyes go, there are so many ways to catch walleyes these days, sometimes the most effective ways are getting back to the basics.  There are some subtle but important nuances to the basics that can make all the difference in the world in talking putting more walleyes in the boat.Lake of the Woods Tourism visitor guide
