On the Season You Live For: "Fall, without a doubt, especially when we're talking night fishing. That time of year, most people are chasing deer and ducks, and the vast majority of recreational anglers have stored their boats away. This works for me because I hate boat traffic. Leaves are dropping, ice is starting to form, and if hearing walleyes splash in the dark as they chase bait on a shallow reef doesn't fire you up, you need to check your pulse. The conditions start to get dicey. You never know if you'll make it out on a given day this time of year, but that makes it an adventure."
