We wrap up the month with some interesting guests and topics.
First, retired Michigan DNR Fisheries Technician Don Barnard talks about the impact of the failure of Michigan’s Edenville and Sanford Dams. Don has spent a lot of time on Wixom and Sanford Lakes doing research, and fishing. He says those fisheries have been decimated, but that they could come back quickly if the dams are re-built and water restored to the impoundments.
Then, Tom Campbell from Woods-n-Waternews has a look at their June edition.
Hour two kicks off with Dave Kimar of Kimar’s Charters on Lake Superior. Dave was one of the first Charter Captains to take clients out to Stannard Rock to fish for giant Lake Trout…and his company is still running those trips today.
Jeff Poet is up next. Jeff talks about the status of the Michigan Wildlife Council’s “Here for Generations” campaign, now that funding for the project has temporarily dried up. He also discusses the re-opening of Jay’s Sporting Goods after being closed for several weeks because of Covid 19.
The Off Shore Tackle company is the topic of discussion in Hour 3 as Nick DeShano joins me. Nick describes the history of Off Shore and how his Dad Bruce started with just one downrigger release. Nick also explains why trolling can be such a productive method to catch fish.
Wild game chef Dave Minar wraps it all up with a very nice fish recipe.
I hope you like the show.
