It was a year ago when the Michiana Walleye Association banded with a few boat dealers to revitalize the Michiana Boat and Sport Show for South Bend.

Like me, they remembered the good ol’ days when South Bend had a jam-packed, fun-filled outdoors show.

Their inaugural event at the Century Center in late January showed a lot of promise. No, it wasn’t comparable to the excellent shows we saw there and at Notre Dame a few decades ago, but it was a good attempt in the short time they had to put it together.

So good, in fact, that the Michiana Walleye Association plans to step up its game at next month’s show that runs Jan. 31-Feb 2.

Bill Toth with an 11-pt.Now that we’re halfway through the deer firearms season, preliminary results indicate the deer harvest may be lagging behind previous years.

Is it the weather?

Did the EHD virus in previous years hurt the herd more than experts realize?

Was the rut running a little behind normal?

Or have the DNR’s liberal doe seasons in both states put a huge dent in the population?

It depends upon whom you ask.
