Lake Erie Walleye Magazine Celebrates 4th Year

With the recently published 12th issue, Lake Erie Walleye Magazine is
celebrating  4 years of providing its 1,500 subscribers quality
information on the walleye fishing scene on Lake Erie.

Started in 1995 by Rick Kubb, an avid walleye fisherman, the magazine is
printed  each spring, summer and fall.  Each issue focuses on the
seasonal biology and ecology of walleyes in Lake Erie,  as well as
providing information aimed at helping fishermen catch more walleyes.
Although walleye is the primary focus, the magazine also addresses
yellow perch, smallmouth bass, and other species as they relate to the
ecology of the lake.

"Our goal from the beginning has been to promote sportfishing on Lake
Erie and give the walleye fisherman as much scientific and practical
information as possible," said Rick Kubb, editor and publisher.  "By
limiting print advertising to a low percentage of the total pages  we
can provide more walleye reading
per page than is typical in outdoor magazines."

Kubb, a former Fisheries Biologist and native of Northeastern Ohio,
started the magazine as a hobby and as a way for him to travel often to
Ohio to fish for walleyes.  You see, Kubb currently lives over 600 miles
from Lake Erie, in St. Louis MO.   "Over the years, some have questioned
our ability to publish
good and accurate information about walleye fishing on Lake Erie from
St. Louis.   With computers, the internet, fax machines and with the
assistance of Fisheries Biologists, Charter Captains and a great
editorial staff of professional walleye fishermen, the job is actually
quite easy," says  Kubb,
who  frequently travels to the shores of Lake Erie to fish with captains
and visit with biologists.  "The Fisheries Biologists at the Ohio
Division of Wildlife and Ohio Sea Grant have been particularly helpful
in providing good solid fisheries information and expertise.   We enjoy
sharing with our readers the
fisheries work that the Ohio Biologists have conducted over the years,"
said Kubb.

Each issue offers  several feature articles by well known walleye
experts including Ted Takasaki and Keith Kavajecz.  Regular columns  in
each issue include the "Walleye News & Fact File",  "Ask the Captain",
"Captain's Corner", "Equipment & Tackle News", "Walleye Tournament
Schedules and Results" and more.  An informational directory of
Professional Fishing Charters is also included in
each issue.
