About Doctor Sonar

Welcome to Doctor Sonar® Training.  "Doc" Bruce Samson has multiple major wins to his credit and is known as the Devil's Lake Master having won the PWT on the lake twice. He also won the MWC National Walleye Championship in 1986 and the RCL National Walleye Championship in 2002.  Doc also has 8 major walleye tournament wins including the MWC twice, the PWT 4 times, the AIM once, and the FLW/RCL once.

Doc Samson has a winning formula that has worked for him on both lakes and rivers; this formula includes using today's technology to his advantage on the water.  GPS and Sonar technology are common tools in competitive walleye fishing, but few walleye pros have blended the technology with aerial photos, satellite elevation charts, and custom designed contour maps.  Doc is one that does this and he does it well with his proven techniques on the tournament trail.

Doc possesses the knowledge and experience to improve others and was honored with the Professional Walleye Trail Norb Wallock Memorial Teaching Award, the "Top PWT Teaching Pro" in 2004.

When not competing, the Doc is active teaching electronics and fishing skills at every level.  Whether you seek a little help or a lot, the Doc can help you via his website, educational DVDs, seminars, classes, Walleye Schools, magazine articles, or one-on-one with water training.  

Doc has been inducted into the Minnesota Fishing Hall of Fame and the Freshwater Fishing Hall of fame.
