BISMARCK, N.D. (KFYR) - What will they think of next? It’s a line we often used when technology makes another advancement and that’s what Johnnie Candle is talking about as we continue to look back through the years in this, the silver anniversary season of Pro’s Pointer.

Johnnie Candle, MWC World Walleye Champion & N.D. Fishing Hall of Fame:

“Post-spawn walleye means fishing the flats. (From 2000) “One of the most overlook ways to cover these flats is long line trolling. I’m not talking crankbaits here but jigs. You are going to want to be up in the front of your boat using your bow mount electric motor.”

This is not a flats fishing tip. What caught my ear when listening back for tips for this season’s Pro’s Pointers was the fact that I mentioned being tied to the bow of your of your boat in order to drive your electric trolling motor. We all know that is no longer the case.

No matter where you are in your boat you can simply use your handheld remote control.

If you are anywhere near one of your depth finders, you can steer right through the head of your sonar unit and if either of those don’t work you can use your smart phone to get you from point A to point B.

It’s amazing to me how technology has advanced in the last two decades who knows where it’s going to go from here. I’m Johnnie Candle and that’s this week’s Pro’s Pointer.”

Next week, Johnnie covers a boat control technique that was once cutting edge and now it’s common place.
