Radio Waves: Vic Santucci on Lake Michigan

| 1 Comment | No TrackBacks

Vic Santucci discusses recent and coming changes in Lake Michigan on ``Outside'' this afternoon.


The photo is one I caught when he was working as fisheries biologist and was helping with an assessment on the Chain O'Lakes.

That was part of the path that Santucci went along on the way to being named the head of the Lake Michigan program for the IDNR in November.

We got through most of the fish species (smallmouth, perch, salmon, trout, lakers, whitefish) I wanted to discuss, but we ran out of time before we could have an extended discussion on invasives, something Santucci knows a great deal about.

I suspect that will be for another day.

"Outside" airs from 4:30-5 p.m. Mondays on WKCC-FM (91.1) in Kankakee. Rebroadcasts of the show are at 12:30 p.m. on Sundays.

I would have to agree that the weather has contributed to the IL spring Perch season. A cold front every 3 days changes the water temp way to fast moves the fish out past 130 ft and they are inactive.
But when the SW flow starts up the fish tend to move back in to shallow water and seem to be happy.
