IN THE MIDDLE WITH YOU.  We’re here at the midpoint of the holiday weekend and while the weather is mixed, the times should be good.  We cover boating safety, smelly baits and another seasonal midpoint in today’s Outdoors Roundup

OUTDOORS ROUNDUP:

SAFETY REMINDER.  The NDG&F Department shares boating safety tips in this week’s webcast as the summer season kicks off in earnest this weekend.  Have life jackets and necessary safety items in your boat and ready for use this season.

ODD BAITS.  From cutbaits to chicken liver, some of the stinkiest offerings can catch catfish, thanks to their strong sensory cells in the barbels around their mouths, they can pick up most any (somewhat) edible items in the water.

 

TIPPING POINT.  We celebrate today as the halfway point between the end of last pheasant season and the start of the next one on Oct. 12.
