Now is the time to get your walleye rig ready for when the season opens in spring. A good setup is a 6-foot, light- or medium-action spinning rod with an open-face reel. If the reel has two spools, all the better. Fill one with 6-pound test, the other with 8. Use a think, limp line. What it sacrifices in transmitting strikes it makes up for in allowing you to cast further and present baits more naturally.

Cat Can Pizza


• 1 teaspoon cooking oil

• 1 refrigerated biscuit

• 2 tablespoons pizza sauce

• 1 teaspoon shredded cheese

• pizza toppings (pepperoni, mushrooms, olives, bacon bits, etc.)


This is a campfire favorite developed by an Indiana Girl Scout troop and popular with kids. Rub the inside of an empty tuna can with cooking oil. Place the thawed biscuit in the bottom of the can and flatten it. Add the pizza sauce, cheese and your choice of toppings. Cover the can with heavy-duty aluminum foil and place it on a grate over hot coals. Heat it just long enough for the dough to cook, then serve.
