Trolling bass-style spinnerbaits for walleye; update

When we were working on the blog about trolling bass-style spinnerbaits, we failed to note the late Gregg Meyer's contributions to this genre of walleye fishing.  Here's the link to that story: http://www.in-fisherman.com/2011/09/07/spinnerbaiting-walleyes


We also appreciate Brian's note that provided a link to Louie Stout's 1989 newspaper column, featuring Mike McClelland, Rick Clunn, and spinnerbaits for walleye.  Here's the link to that story: http://www.newspaperarchive.com/SiteMap/FreePdfPreview.aspx?img=11555784


Readers who are interested in reading a few more words about spinnerbaits can examine this link: http://www.in-fisherman.com/2011/06/29/the-spin-on-spinnerbaits/ and this one: http://www.in-fisherman.com/2011/09/08/spinnerbait-insights/

By the way, Louis Stout's story provides us with some insights to the history of angling, and some of us advocate that knowing the history of angling can make us better anglers.  In that vein, some of us need to convince various archives and historical societies the importance of collecting  and preserving  the  records of individual anglers, clubs, professional organizations,  boat manufacturers,  tackle industry,  and angling media.
