This is the time of year when some Midwest walleye anglers get excited. They know that some of the best walleye action of the year has started, or is getting close to starting. From the Missouri River all the way east to the rivers that run into Lake Michigan, walleyes are beginning to make their pre-spawn movement upriver. It's at this time of year when they can be caught in big numbers, and the chance for a real trophy is there also. Here's how you can get in on this action.

Things did get better. Non-toxic ammo improved.
