Outdoor Journal Radio – February 11 2017


Angelo is cupid this week as we approach Valentine’s Day! Outdoor writer, and accomplished bass fisherman Wil Wegman, joins Angelo to talk about Licence Free Fishing Weekend on February 18th to 20th. Wil teaches fishing in a series of clinics held across Ontario. This week he’s in Ottawa teaching fishing 101.

Ontario’s moose population is in decline and there’s a push to end the calf hunt. John Kaplanis from the Northwestern Ontario Sportsmen’s Alliance in Thunder Bay, will join Angelo to offer his views on behalf of the resident hunters and outfitters.

On the Go Fish in Ontario segment, Brian Stubbings joins Angelo from Anchorage Resort near Bancroft. Brian operates ice huts on Paudash Lake. He takes novices, groups, seniors and those with mobility problems to his ice huts, and gives them fishing lessons. The winter fishing is for splake and lake trout, but Angelo wants to know more about the bass fishing and the bass tournaments in
the area.

The haddock population on the east coast has exploded with an estimated 264 million fish in the swim. Department of Fisheries and Oceans Biologist Monica Finley joins Angelo to explain how the 2013 year class was so successful, and what this means for the commercial and sport fishery.
