I debated using one of my stock photos of Norm Minas, but decided to stick with the standard studio shot when guests appear on "Outside,'' which features Norm this afternoon.
"Outside" airs from 4:30-5 p.m. Mondays on WKCC, a start-up public radio station in Kankakee. Click here for online listening options.
I have been out with Norm on various expeditions in my life, all along the Kankakee River or tribs of it. It was with Norm that I earned entry to the 32-degree club for smallmouth bass fishermen.
Norm is one of two thought to have fished all 20 some miles of shoreline at Kankakee River State Park.
Co-host Joel Greenberg has the perspective of somebody who doesn't fish regularly and has other interests. This was a different show the than the first four.
We touch on some of the efforts Norm has been involved in to protect the Kankakee watershed.
