Ask The Aquatic Biologist - Mondays

Kev asks Dr. Andrew Hafs, Bemidji State University Aquatic Biologist, questions about fish and fishing.  In addition to Kev’s questions, Andy had his students put together a list of questions they have about fish.  Everything…and probably more…that you ever wanted to know about fish.

Lake of the Week - Thursdays

Kev scours the maps for those hidden gems throughout Paul Bunyan Country then gets all the information from the many outstanding professionals in the area DNR Fisheries offices.  You’ll have heard of some, but probably not most.  One thing all of these lakes have in common…they have fish in them!
