Hope all is well. Attached is the flyer for this years trip to New Orleans. The response has been fantastic so far. Everyone is wanting to come down and see New Orleans after it has been on the news all summer. The fishing is fantastic. We really did luck out with not having oil get into any of the areas that we guide. This honestly might be the best season ever. Please check your calendars and see if any dates will work. Let me know if you have any questions and what I can do to get you HOOKED UP!!

There isn’t a single fisherman I know that wouldn’t sell every lure he had to sit down at the table with a pro angler and soak up some hearty secrets about their favorite species. A pro angler is a walking evolving encyclopedia of fishing knowledge, the chance to chat with them about fishing for a few moments can change your entire perspective on a species or presentation.
Today we’re bringing that opportunity to you! Since our previous interview with pro angler and first lady of fishing Kim Bain-Moore, we’ve been dying to sit down with another pro angler and this time we felt compelled to let our readers have the opportunity to ask a pro angler the questions they’ve always wanted answer to. This is your chance to ask a pro angler anything you want!
Paul Meleen is a pro angler and this year’s FLW Walleye Angler of the Year (more), he has won over $100,000, weighed-in over 1000 lbs of walleye throughout his career, and has an insatiable appetite for fresh fish.
“Winning Angler of the Year means I was the best out there in 2010,” said Meleen. “And that’s something no one can take away from me. It gets harder and harder every year to win, so I feel very fortunate.
“I’m old school; I simply put more time in than anyone else. I’m practicing from sunrise to sundown, trying to find something off the wall. I also have the confidence of a great sponsor team. Foremost among them is Evinrude. Cabela’s has also been instrumental, and I’ve been with Ranger Boats since 1988. In fact, I was the first walleye pro to run a 600-Series Ranger.”
“I’ve had two goals for a long time. The first was to win Angler of the Year and the second was to win the year-end championship. I’m halfway there, and this could be my year.”
Post your questions for Paul Meleen in the comments below. We’ll choose the best ones and include them in our interview. This is your chance to ask a pro angler anything about fishing, walleye, the FLW tour, and everything in between.
You may remember our fishing reports from Toronto Island earlier this year. We had the opportunity to fish along side Jamie Pistilli, the host of Big City Fishing, and share our knowledge of fishing in the shadow of the CN Tower. Our outing wasn’t overly successful, but we had a great time working with Jamie and his crew and hope to do so again in the future. You can now tune in to WFN and watch Jamie’s urban fishing adventures across North America, and hopefully one day get a glimpse of Jon and I in action.
