mucc Executive Director Dan Eichinger wraps up the hour. Dan has details of their recent convention, including talk of Michigan dove and sandhill crane hunts. He also expresses concern over the recent discovery of asian carp very near Lake Michigan.
In the final hour of this week’s show, I talk with retired Coast Guardsman Joe Marion. Joe spent his entire lifetime on the water and now works as a charter captain out of Lundington on Rod Master Fishing charters.
