Follow the highlights of the 2019 National Walleye Tour featuring the four biggest events of the year. We start on Lake Winnebago, Oshkosh, Wisconsin where the largest field in NWT history, 166 teams of pro and co anglers have assembled to compete for the largest purse ever. Unseasonably cold weather means they have to try everything in their repertoire. The second stop is at Marinette on the Bay of Green Bay, part of Lake Michigan offering a huge area of water to fish, most anglers head north where there are some very large Walleye to be found. The third stop is at Sault Ste Marie in Michigan, it sits on the St Mary's River that runs the short distance between Lakes Superior and Huron, so the fishing opportunities here are almost endless. The tour comes to an exciting climax with the Tour Championship, this year held on Devil's Lake, North Dakota. 87 of the top placed anglers of the season take part in the first two days, with ten of them qualifying for the day 3 showdown where the Championship trophy and Angler of the Year will be decided.

Most anglers hate being cooped up over the winter months and Clark Wendlandt is no different, he can't wait to get out and do a bit of Pre-Spawn Bass Fishing in early Spring. Here he gives tips and advice on how to make the most of the chance to catch some big Bass. Use your electronics, the Bass will tend to hold up on the edge of a grass bed before they spawn, so find the edges and use a sinking bait that will get down to the fish. Make sure the bait has plenty of action, the Bass are in an aggressive mood, so make it easy for them to see and attack your lure. Be prepared to change tactics, as always Clark comes armed with a load of pre-rigged rods so he can easily swap when something isn't working, he's got plenty of tips on which lure to use with which which rod and reel for a whole host of conditions.

Des arrives at the Palm Tree Lagoon resort on his first trip to Thailand for a weeks fishing, hoping that he is going to be pulled all around the lake by some of the monster fish lurking in its depths, top of his wish list is an Arapaima, these fantastic prehistoric looking fish can grow to over 500lbs. The fishery was bought by Englishman Tim Webb in 2008, he's continually trying to improve the number and variety of fish on offer, it currently holds 100 different freshwater species, 14 of them to over 100lbs. Des's guide Benchawan baits up his three rods, one with very smelly fish guts, the second with a chicken neck. Both fished in mid water on 80lb braid with an 80lb heavy nylon leader. The third uses pop up boilies from a method feeder in which she puts a sticky mixture of brown rice and bread crumb. His first bite is a Big Headed Carp quickly followed by a Catfish Shark, both weighing in at around 40lbs, but mere tiddlers here. Highlights that follow are a lovely Siamese Carp, a Redtail Catfish and a gigantic Mekong catfish but quite honestly the variety of species that Des catches is amazing, most of them new to him, but his trip of a lifetime is completed when he lands an Arapaima at over 300lbs. "The most beautiful fish I've ever seen in my life." To watch Palm Tree Lagoon Thailand now, just login or join

While most Bass anglers will admit to preferring the no nonsense tactics of flipping and spinning, the best ones will have mastered Finesse Tactics on lightweight line and tackle. Clark Wendlandt shows how he ties his dropshotting rig so that he can jiggle a rubber worm 18 inches above the bottom. John Crews matches his hook size to his bait when using smaller rubber lures. Gerald Swindle shows how to tie the Red Phillips knot he uses when he wants to fish a sensitive, lightweight flourocarbon leader on his braided mainline. When conditions get tough this is a go to set up for a lot of the pros and the bait that a lot of them like to use is the Shakey Head. Just throw it out, let it sink to the bottom and then slowly retrieve, allowing it to bounce and hop over the contours. It's the bait that gets a "ton" of bites in all conditions.

Although Des is generally thought of as a river angler, he admits that he loves Carp fishing and here at the Sitch Lake in Shropshire he is able to indulge himself during a two day session in the famous Holiday swim. It's April and although the sun is shining in clear blue skies it's unseasonably cold and the water temperature has dropped, so Des is taking a cagey approach, not over feeding. He's casting a slow sinking pineapple wafter hookbait that he hope's will sit just above his free offerings, halved Scopex Squid 20mm boilies soaked in Tigernut juice with Betaine and Hemp Oil that he's strung on a short PVA thread and attached to the hook. He's hoping that the wafter will sit just above these and be the first thing sucked into an unsuspecting hungry carp's mouth. The lake is a consistent 4 feet deep with a silty bottom and Des has seen carp breaking the surface about 70 yards out, so he's casting his two rods into this area. There are plenty of Carp in the lake ranging from 20lbs to one just over 50lbs but in these conditions Des will be happy with a bite or two. He doesn't have to wait too long before he gets a drop back on the alarm and the game is on. Des has been carp fishing for many years and has plenty of tips on reading the conditions, casting techniques and bait presentation making this a great film to watch.

The roles are reversed for this session on Cudmore Fisheries, as Andy May gets to sit in the hot seat whilst Jamie Hughes gets to ask the questions. Andy has chosen to fish on Moors Canal so that he can demonstrate his approach to fishing snake lakes on the pole. He starts by fishing to the far bank, finding a depth of about 20 - 22", where he knows he's going to catch smaller fish at first, but doesn't mind as he thinks these will attract the bigger fish. He also baits up in the middle of the lake, and fishes shallow there once he decides its time to switch. To watch this video now, just login or register
