Show Rundown for the First Weekend in May

We kick off the month talking about salmon fishing on Lake Michigan with Paul Schlafley of Riverside Charters in Manistee.  Paul says they’re seeing some nice kings already.

Then Emily Mallory of the Forward Corporation explains how to win a fishing trip with Paul by stopping into one of their gas stations or convenience stores.

Hour two features the “Sturgeon General”, Brenda Archambo.  Brenda describes their sturgeon guarding program on the Black River in Northern Michigan (SturgeonForTomorrow.org).

Dan Laux of the Michigan dnr is up next.  He talks about preventing wildfires and the benefits of prescription burns for habitat and wildlife.

Fishing is the topic of discussion in hour number three as I talk with outdoor writer and veteran angler Dave Mull (MidwestOutdoors.com).  Dave talks about getting into the rapidly growing sport of kayak fishing.

We wrap it up with Chef Dixie Dave Minar.  This time Dave has a very nice trout recipe.

I hope you like the show.

Show Rundown for the end of January

We wrap up the month talking about a wide variety of topics this week.

First, Michigan dnr fisheries biologist Jim Baker talks about the Saginaw Bay walleye fishery and the role ciscos/herring could play in the future.

Then “Sturgeon General” Brenda Archambo of Sturgeon for Tomorrow joins me with details on the upcoming Sturgeon Shivaree on Black Lake.

Hour two kicks off with outdoor writer Richard P Smith.  Richard says bear predation on UP whitetails is a bigger problem than most people realize.  He also talks about the effective of mandatory antler point restrictions.

Adam Bump from the DNR  is up next.  Adam reminds us that squirrel and rabbit seasons are still open.  He says with poor ice conditions across the southern part of the state, small game hunting is a good option.

Wild game chef Dixie Dave Minar wraps it all up with another great recipe.
