Hi there, this is the Walleye Fishing Tips Headquarters......
Although Midwest Outdoors is more in the format of a newspaper than the format of the usual magazines, you will be surprised at the amount of quality that you will find in just one issue. There are easily 20-30 articles in each issue. Compare that with the other big name magazines who only have 4-5 articles and so much advertising that you can hardly find any good information. Don't get me wrong, I like the other magazines and maybe they have the big name writers. I guess I'm just trying to say that until I found Midwest Outdoors, I probably wouldn't have known just how good a "magazine" could be.
I just read an article today in one of the issues about jigging for walleyes with spoons. I found out that not only is it good to use during the icy months (have you been outside lately?), but it's also good at other times of the year. Usually I have a separate tackle box. One for ice fishing and one for the rest of the year. Who knew that I can use the ice fishing equipment during the summer months?
Anyway, I'm anxious to grab every issue of Midwest Outdoors to see what I can learn next. I mean with as many articles as there are, you get the great new things to try as well as the good old days stories of father and son, father and daughter, etc. fishing and hunting stories.
I almost forgot to mention that Midwest Outdoors is a hunting "magazine" as well. Even during the fall and spring where there seems to be more focus on hunting, there are still plenty of fishing articles. I would say that it is about 50 percent hunting and 50 percent fishing most of the time.
Obviously you can tell that I like Midwest Outdoors a lot. It's not a very expensive magazine and I pick it up at the store every time I go there. I guess I might as well get a subscription and save some money. Anyway, this "magazine" is too valuable not to mention it to you.
Oh and one of the best parts of Midwest Outdoors, is Cartoon Corner where readers look at a picture and come up with the funniest caption they can and send it in. There are some pretty funny results from all of that.
All right, all right, I'll stop going on about them now. Have a good night.
