Thanks for the Patience & Some Launch Ramp Tips

Posted by: Dan in Untagged  on

Thanks for standing by late last week as we tweaked this web site and it was off line for a couple of days. We're growing at Buckeye Sportsman and as we do so are taking more things in house to help manage same, and that was part of the process. Look for some great shows in June, with plenty of fishing content, starting with some interesting data about boating access as it relates to fishermen and some tips on the proper way to launch and load a boat at a busy launch ramp to be shared on the final show in May this Saturday -- just in time for National Fishing & Boating Week June 1-9. 'Here's to a great summer! -- Dan

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!
