The Knights Of Columbus Walleye Classic’s 20th Anniversary Celebration is this Saturday, and the quickly changing Covid regulations have given them the opportunity to have a true celebration. K of C Walleye Chair Jon Marcum and committee member Joe Czapiewski joined the show to get us updated on what’s happening. The Knights got approval from the City to have the waterfront open for the Awards Ceremony. Jon and Joe lay out the whole day and much more.
Also on the today’s show, Dave Weitzel of the Grand Rapids Area Fisheries Office was the chair of the Panfish Technical Committee that has put together a plan to bring back big panfish (in particular blue gills). The plan went into effect March 1. The most notable aspect was the change in panfish regs on approximately 100 lakes in the state. Dave discusses the changes, the response from the public, the hoped for results and what might be coming next.
