Panfish, Eelpout and a device called the SeaQuilzer on Early Bird Fishing Guide


Jeff Sundin with Early Bird Fishing Guide

Jeff Sundin joins Heidi on the Thursday Morning Show for Early Bird Fishing Guide. This week they talk about the cold weather and the slush problem found in places where people have previously fished. Jeff gives us tips on fishing for panfish, and informs us that the DNR has removed eelpout from the rough fish category and the now categorizes them as a game fish.

Jeff talks about the SeaQualizer, a device that allows anglers to safely release fish back into deep water. He shares a link to a DNR video that demonstrates how this device works on his website jeffsundin.com.
