Dan McNeil headlines Stray Casts No. 6.
The photo to the left is from an outing with him last spring on LaSalle Lake.
Probably should have asked him for a muskie photo.
I suspect muskies will come up at some point tonight.
But he is hardly alone on Stray Casts tonight.
We have our usually packed show.
James Watson is on the "Bass Buzz" with Pat Renwick. Ben Boettcher talks reel tuning and repair with Bobby Bergren. Ryan Chandler is on with Ryan Whitacre in "Local Hammer."
Every Wednesday, the show streams live 7-9 p.m. (Central) on an internet-connected device near you. Almost immediately, the show will be up as a podcast on our YouTube channel.
The easiest way for most is to go to our YouTube Channel, you can do that by clicking here. Otherwise, you can click the hot button at the top of straycasts.net.
Our four regular hosts are Renwick, Bergren, Whitacre and myself (Dale Bowman).
If you are listening while it is live streaming, you can call in at (219) 228-1492.
Social media contacts are @StrayCasts on Twitter, Stray Casts on Facebook and stray_casts on Instagram. You can also comment on the YouTube channel during the live stream.
Here are the general times for segments. I will try to make a note to do this on social media during the show.
7 p.m.: Show intro: (It will rock you.) Not sure what the giveaways are this week, but they are usually doozies.
7:05: Bowman Outside: Turkey, smelt, dancing woodcock, sexing sauger and other stuff.
7:21 Bass Buzz: Pat leads an interview with Watson (right).
7:55: On the Water and in the Box: Bobby takes us around his special box of goodies and gear with help this time from Boettcher.
8:14: Local hammer: Ryan has Chandler, from Hebron, Ind., on this week.
8:30: Outdoor Stalwart: I lead an interview with McNeil, but I suspect it will be a feeding fest of bass, muskie, fishing and radio spots talk.
8:45: Fishing Reports: This segment might get tightened up this week.
8:57: Audience wrap:
Times subject to change on the fly.
