In the third hour we head outside the great state of Michigan as I talk with charter captain Mike Orr of Five Orrs Charters.  Mike fishes southern Lake Michigan for early season trout and salmon.  Usually his trolling boat is in the water by now but Mike says it’ll be several weeks this year before the ice moves out.

Then we head to northern Quebec as I talk with Pierre Smarlack of Northern Outfitters.  Pierre runs a first rate hunting and fishing operation near the town of Val-d’or and he has info on his hunting and fishing packages.

We wrap up this week’s show, once again, with chef Dixie Dave Minar.  This week Dave has a tasty walleye recipe.
