Holland, and what’s next for Sportsmen . . .

    #142: Wading In

    Waders. Every duck hunter has a love/hate relationship with waders. On one hand, when they work, they’re the greatest invention of all time.  But.  When they don’t. Well – let’s just say it can make for a very “moist” season. What do we look for in waders, what do we like, dislike, want, and what we bought! Plus, free advice on non-lead shot, Foster Dogs, Taylor Swift, Billie Eilish, Mesh Pants, unity sandwiches, the Cape Sable Seaside Sparrow and the Great American Outdoors Act!

    Conversations #2.15: Dr. Jason Ferrell

    Dr. Jason Ferrell is the director of the Center for Aquatic Invasive Plants at the University of Florida. In short, he’s an expert on the subject of one of the hottest topics in Florida: invasive plant, which in turn are generally handled by spraying. In this conversation, we unpack these plants and their behaviors, herbicides, both the good and bad sides, and we go in depth on aquatic harvesters, including detailed discussion of the recent pilot study done on Lake Toho.  This is a packed episode with a ton of amazing information around a very difficult subject . . .

    #141: What’s New, ICAST?

    Every year, we do a “New Product Showcase” Review from our time at the ICAST Fishing Industry Trade Show . . . With this year’s show being virtual, we decided to take a different tact and wander through the New Product Showcase Winners – while this goes against our governing principle of always looking for the innovation and newcomers, it also saved us hours upon hours of combing the internet doing research! With that said, here’s our take on the New Product Showcase winners, including the Best in Show Kayak with a built in trolling motor . . . Plus, we defend Power-pole’s honor, we talk about hope for the Citrus industry in Florida, the Cape Sable Seaside Sparrow makes and appearance, weighted blankets, duck hunts at Reelfoot Lake, Brooklyn 99 and so much more . . .

Best podcast ever

BMaxusSC ,

Excelent show on sporting dogs!

Love the podcast!
Enjoy the drafts y'all do and the guests that you have on. Looking forward to some fishing reports, stories, and tips from this fishing season.

Stay safe guys and God bless!

Side note- Travis, speak up (insert sarcasm font here) and stop with the "soft spoken soap opera guy" voice.
In other words figure out how to bring your audio up to match everyone else
