This week on the Lone Star Outdoors Show, we kick things off by talking with shark angler Tim McClellan of League City, Texas. Tim recently caught a tournament winning and new state record hammerhead shark that measured 14.5 inches and weighed 1033 lbs! We get the firsthand recount of this once in a lifetime catch that took 3 hours to reel in even while chasing the fish down in a 30 foot off shore boat!
Then we take a look at some concerning news coming out of Northern California and the conservation impact that it might have. Last week, the 2nd ever wolf pack was discovered in Northern California, the implications for deer and other cervid species could be huge as wolves continue their Southwestern expansion.
Next we are joined by Dr. Nancy Rabalais of Louisiana State University. We’ll discuss the Dead Zone in the Gulf where life ceases to exist due to a lack of oxygen in the water. The area, void of sealife is the size of the state of Vermont this year, the largest Dead Zone on record. Dr Rabalais tells us what causes it and how humans can help prevent it going forward.
Then we discuss summertime blues with Greg Pavur of Pavur Outdoors. Greg is on the blue catfish bite as usual and he tells us where to find ’em and how to catch them.
Join us Saturday Morning at 8, on Texas Thunder Radio!
