Jeff Sundin on Early Bird Fishing Guide

Jeff Sundin joins Heidi Holtan on the Thursday Morning Show for Early Bird Fishing. This week they talk about the recent weather making fishing from plowed roads necessary, resort openings at Lake of the Woods, fishing for whitefish in Green Bay and ice conditions on Mille Lacs.

Jeff talks about barotrauma, happening when fish are brought up from deep water too fast and the rapid change in pressure causes the gases in the fish's body to expand which is most likely fatal for the fish. For more on barotrauma visit
