Outdoor Magazine Radio for this Weekend

Charter Captain Mike Orr of Five Orrs Charters kicks off the show this week.  Mike was fishing southern Lake Michigan for salmon and trout but he’s moved his business to Lake Erie because the fishing there is so much better.H

Hour two features another professional fisherman, Paul Schlafley of River Side Charters out of Manistee.  Paul is talking to us from the Manistee River, where he says the steelhead action has been pretty good.

Next, mucc Executive Director Dan Eichinger joins me to talk about a variety of issues, including the plan to allow commercial fishermen to keep walleye and lake trout.  MUCC is against that proposal.

James Severance of Burt Watson  Chevrolet wraps up the hour.  James says they’re offering a new “Outdoorsman” Silverado, based on my truck.


Veteran outdoor writer and expert hunter Tom Lounsbury is my guest in hour three.  Tom is always of wealth of information and stories about his outdoor experiences….and this time is no exception.

We wrap it up with Chef Dixie Dave Minar and another interesting wild game dinner.

I hope you like the show.

Radio This Weekend…..2/13/10

Another busy show this week on the Outdoor Magazine radio show.

My first guest is an old friend of mine….Mark Martin. Mark is considered by many to be Michigan’s premiere walleye angler, and his record on the tournament trail over the years would seem to prove that.

Martin and I discuss his recent ice fishing school on Saginaw Bay. The anglers caught lots of nice walleye, including many in shallow water.

Next, Tony Hanson of Michigan United Conservation Clubs joins me. This week he has information on a proposal for a limited lottery of bear and elk permits. Tony and I agree it’s a concept with lots of merit, but doesn’t look like it will be approved.

In the second hour, I present my list of Michigan based hunting and fishing manufacturers. I still have more to add, but when complete I’ll post that list, along with their websites, on the Outdoor Magazine blog. Right now I have about sixty companies, and I know there are many more out there.

Next, Mike Orr of Five Orrs Charters joins me to talk about early season trolling for salmon and trout in southern Lake Michigan. Mike expects to be on the water by the middle of March.

We continue our fishing theme with Mark Romanack. Mark helps me finish out the hour talking about ice fishing and lots more.

The final hour of this week’s show kicks off with one of my favorites guests. Richard P. Smith is a veteran outdoor writer and expert hunter from Marquette. Richard has just released a DVD on field judging black bears. In my opinion that disc is a must for novice bear hunters.

Dixie Dave Minar helps us wrap up once again. This time Dave and I talk about the venison spaghetti dinner coming up at my Church Sunday, February 21st.

Yet another busy show this week. I hope you enjoy it.
