Morels and Gobblers

Posted by: Dan in Untagged  on

We'll be talking plenty of turkey on Buckeye Sportsman now that the season is underway through Mid-May -- that and morel mushroom hunting, which is a welcome distraction to those of us lucky enough to stumble upon a patch of 'shrooms while scouting for gobblers. As with the annual Lake Erie walleye spawning runs, the mushroom season has been held up a bit by our lingering winter, but both opportunities should be busting out all over as April proceeds. Early next month, look for a show on fishing select state park waters, as well as a catfishing feature. Meanwhile, good luck and hunt safe in the turkey woods and thanks for tuning in to Buckeye Sportsman.--Dan

Bears, Trout, Walleyes and Turkeys

Posted by: Dan in Untagged  on

We talk about bears in Ohio, how to fool stocked rainbow trout, how to catch ice-out walleyes and how to hunt turkeys with bow and shotgun on upcoming shows. April is a time of year when lots of outdoor options are on the table -- and I'll do my best to keep you covered with the latest tips and info from guest experts who hunt and fish here in the Buckeye State. Thanks for tuning in and Happy Spring! -- Dan

At Cabela's This Weekend

Posted by: Dan in Untagged  on

I'll be leading my Kids Fishing 411 program at 1 p.m. this Saturday and Sunday, March 15 and 16, at the Columbus Cabela's store. After those two seminar times I'll be heading down to the Ohio Deer & Turkey Expo, which comes to town Friday through Sunday, to catch some of turkey hunting seminars. Producer Glenn Helgeland is my guest this week on the show, and will be sharing some info on the programs he's offering at the expo this year. See you there -- or at Cabela's!

Big Walleyes and Blue Catfish

Posted by: Dan in Untagged  on

I joined Capt Mike Patterson on the ice at Lake Erie last weekend, fishing six miles off Crane Creek in 22 feet, and saw some huge walleye caught -- as well as netting a few nice fish on my own between photos shoots of anglers with enormous walleyes -- including a 12 pounder. Go to the fishing link at to see my story and photos. This week on the show we talk winter open water fishing for big blue cats on the Ohio River with Cincy-based guide Dale Broughton (see Dan's Links for contact info), who captains a boat with a heated cabin for those who choose to fish from the comfort of a boat on open water rather than the comfort of a heated shanty on the ice...Tune in!

Big Walleye Being Caught

Posted by: Dan in Untagged  on

We debunk a record walleye rumor about a reported 18 pound fish being caught through the ice week before last. Turned out to be a 31.5 inch, 12.2 pound fish, which is still huge, a photo of which people re-posted on line and kept "increasing" it's size.... I talked to Capt Mike Patterson, who guided the angler, and he says they are catching 10 pound plus walleye regularly off Catawba right now. Call Mike at 419-308-6925 to book a shanty. South Bass Island fish -- walleye and perch -- are active as well (see my previous blog for Kostura's ferry service and ice guide Bud Gehring's contact info). -- Dan
