Jacob Wheeler, the comer of modern bass fishing, headlines Stray Casts No. 8. That's him in the photo below and right.
We have our usually packed show tonight.
Wheeler is on the "Bass Buzz" with Pat Renwick. Nick Ryan is on with Ryan Whitacre in "Local Hammer." Ben Dickinson, assistant Lake Michigan fisheries biologist for Indiana, is on the ``Stalwarts'' segment with me, Dale Bowman.
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, Bobby Bergren, Whitacre and myself.
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. I also tried to be more realistic in what our times are actually ending up being.
7 p.m.: Show intro: (It will rock you.) Not sure what the giveaways are this week, but they are usually doozies.
