Adam Carpenter from the Outdoor Show on WFXD!

We started out with Nick from Superior Outfitters in downtown Marquette.  Runor had it that no one in Big Bay was carrying shiners for the Derby this weekend.  He confirmed that he does have shiners as well as a full array of other live bait including wigglers.  We discussed hot lures and his secret weapon for panfish and trout (or any light biting species of fish).  Its a form of tip up called the JAW JACKER.  We also spoke about recent winter steelheading reports and how good they were before this frigidness arrived.

Later, Pete Sorel from Settlers Co-Op in Bruce Crossing joined us in the studio.  He is in town to fish in the Big Bay Ice Fishing Derby on Lake Independence and he shared his plan of attack as well as some specific baits he will be trying.  Pete then shared ice fishing reports from western U.P. lakes including, Lake Gogebic, Lac Vieux Desert and others.  Have a listen:

We’ll be back next week with more on the Outdoor Show

Marquette, MI – February 12th, 2016 – Major Discount was at Super One Foods in Marquette today for the UPAWS (Upper Peninsula Animal Welfare Society) benefit, and we brought it all to you live on 103-FXD! The Major was there to mingle with all the fine people who came out to support a great cause, and he even had an awesome lunch thanks to Super One Foods and UPAWS!

It may have looked like a blizzard outside, but thousands of people still showed up to take advantage of the amazing deals! The scent of freshly-fried, humongous butterflied shrimp wafted through the store, and Major Discount and the gang from GLR made sure to take advantage of the great lunch deal! For only $4.00, UPAWS and Super One Foods provided a great lunch that included those amazing shrimp, fresh coleslaw, fries, and a pop! Make sure to check out the gallery of photos below to see all the fun that was had!

When customers were done taking advantage of the great lunch deal, they could choose from a litany of the freshest seafood around! There was fresh coho salmon for only $6.99 per pound, 16-20ct shrimp for just $9.99 per pound, and they had beautiful tuna steaks that were $7.77 per pound! They had king crab legs that were just $16.99 per pound, and the freshest oysters available were only $0.99 each!

Luke and Walt enjoying the fest!

Marquette, MI  –  February 12, 2016  –  Lafayette Collision recently performed a vehicle clean-up on a Ford F350 pickup for a client. Lafayette cleaned that F350 inside and out in a short amount of time!

Nick and the crew at Lafayette also repaired the trailer plug below the back bumper. The plug came apart from backing into snow banks during this long, dreary winter. By adding a 7-foot extension cable that can plug into that lower trailer plug, this 2006 F350 can now haul a gooseneck trailer!

Lafayette Collision does a lot of routine body repairs, but they’re also very good with trailers, wiring, and vehicle clean-ups.

Give Nick a call at 906-226-8686 and see what he can do for your gooseneck, 5th wheeler, or bumper pull trailer.
