The Oconto Wisconsin area and its walleyes will be featured on the Fishing the Midwest television show this weekend, February 28 and March 1, in most markets throughout the Midwest. The show was taped late last August. Bob Jensen, host of Fishing the Midwest, fished with walleye pros Bruce DeShano and Dean Arnoldussen.

Oconto lies on the shores of Green Bay. Bruce, Dean, and Bob have taped several shows through the years on this walleye-infested body of water. On this trip, the bay was rough, but the walleyes were biting. At one point, the trio had four walleyes bending their rods. Bob Jensen commented that "The Oconto area of Green Bay is one of my favorite walleye fisheries. The fish are numerous, and the size average is outstanding. This is a world class fishery".

Bruce DeShano will introduce the walleye world to his latest creation on this episode of Fishing the Midwest. Bruce is the owner of Off Shore Tackle, makers of the most popular planer boards available. The Off Shore Mini-Board is the most recent addition to the Off Shore line-up and will debut on Fishing the Midwest this week.

Fishing the Midwest with Bob Jensen is an award-winning television series that features Midwest fishing hotspots and techniques. The theme of each episode is that Midwest anglers don't need to travel long distances to experience outstanding fishing success. Each show reveals Midwest fishing locations and the techniques that will enable anglers to experience fishing success at those locations.

The episode featuring Oconto Wisconsin walleyes will be seen on Midwest-based network affiliates and cable carriers and over satellite systems nationwide the weekend of February 28th and March 1st. For a complete listing of times/stations for Fishing the Midwest, visit
