1. Next NWT stop: Saginaw Bay, MI.
Some locals are guessin’ the winner could crack 60 lbs for a 2-day bag. #SlugFest
2. CAN wants peeps to use less lead.
Not a position the CAN government is about to act upon, but FYI.
> An avg CAN angler can lose 11-15 jigs and sinkers per year while fishing…adds up to about 460 [metric tons] of lead lost every year into Canada’s lakes and waterways.
More like “per day” for me up there….
3. Johnnie Candle inducted to ND Fishing Hall of Fame.
Well-deserved, congrats man!
4. ND: Devils Lake bite es en fuego.
Ton of fish still cruising the shallow 2-5′ stuff. #BassFishingForWalleyes
Perfect timing: The Chamber walleye tournament is Jun 22-23.
5. Great Lakes: Cormorant hunting season comin’.
> The agency will issue permits to kill up to 18,270 cormorants this year in 8 Midwestern states. Those applying must submit photos of cormorant damage, how many they wish to kill and how they plan to do it.
> There were only 125 nesting pairs of Great Lakes cormorants in 1972…today there’s 40K[!]…causing a big problem on many of the region’s islands.
Won’t need decoys…just go where the fish are lol. Only thing almost as annoying as someone practicing their goose call in the truck would be a cormorant call. If you’ve never heard one, they sound exactly like this.
6. Bagley’s havin’ a massive bonfire!
Kiddin’. That’s a mountain of the extra-special balsa wood they’ve been using for 60+ years of making lures.
7. ND: Heads up — gotta buy live bait in-state.
It’s nothing new, but something you might not know: Can’t bring bait across state lines if you’re roadtrippin’ to NoDak. No matter if it’s minnows, suckers, leeches, waterdogs, frogs, kittens or squirrels…gotta buy it local.
8. Smooth Moves seat in action on big water.
A pair-uh Smooth Moves Ultras keep your back and hiney smiling:
9. IN DNR gives grants to fight invasive veggies.
