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.

Outdoor Magazine Radio Rundown for 4/26

We wrap up the month of April talking turkeys and fishing.

First, I tell the story of my successful Michigan turkey hunt.

Avery Turkey


Then former fishing guide Tim Roller talks about springtime trout fishing in northern Michigan.  We also discuss his University of Whitetail project designed to educate Michigan deer hunters.

Tom Campbell of  Woods-n-Waternews  joins me next.  Tom has an update on his turkey season and talks about their push to expand their Facebook page (facebook.com/WoodsnWaternews).

Hour number two features flyfishing guide Mike Schultz of Schultz Outfitters.  While  many flyfishermen will be chasing trout this opening weekend, Mike and his crew plan to target smallmouth on southeast Michigan streams.

Paul Kollmeyer of the Michigan dnr is up next to talk about the springtime wildfire season and how they can be prevented.

Michigan’s “Mr. Walleye”, Mark Martin is the focus of hour number three.  Mark talks to us from the Detroit River where he’s pre fishing for a tournament.  During the conversation the veteran angler catches a couple of nice fish and has some great advice on how to catch more walleye.

We wrap it all up with wild game chef Dixie Dave Minar.  This week Dave has our traditional springtime recipe of Turkey with morel mushrooms and fiddlehead ferns.

A busy show for a busy weekend.  I hope you like it.
