    Took a couple newbies out today. They have never caught a walleye before today. Then Wham Bam inside a couple hours they have not only their first fish but their first limits. I know they are thinking `this ain't very difficult, why all the fuss`!
    Picked a 4 man 1 lady using the same program and the same place as yesterday.

    Take them out in mid - late June or ice out... That will fix that per-conception

    Better yet take them out Late July in 3-5's out on Erie. Just to give them a culture shock.

    Make them do the boat control! One hand on the remote one hand on the rod and if they hook a fish make them be the net man too! Then see what they think!
