The Bass Fishing Hall of Fame Board of Directors has announced the induction class of 2021, which includes three deserving individuals – Gene Gilliland, Jason Lucas and Trip Weldon.
The trio will be honored on Thursday, September 30 at Johnny Morris’ Wonders of Wildlife National Museum & Aquarium at a special reception within the Bass Fishing Hall of Fame venue, followed by the Hall’s annual dinner and induction activities.
The opening day of trout season for inland streams kicks off April 24 at 6 a.m.
DNR biologists have been stocking rainbow trout across the state.
While it’s true that balsa baits have long been favored by lure makers and anglers for their ability to deliver a desirable action, they lack in durability and consistency due to the imperfections that are inherent in natural materials.

BIRMINGHAM, Ala. - For just the third time in the event's storied history, the 2021 Academy Sports + Outdoors Bassmaster Classic will be coming to Texas.
The eyes of Texas ó and the world ó will be watching March 19-21, 2021 as the Super Bowl of Professional Bass Fishing heads to Fort Worth with fishing taking place at Lake Ray Roberts in nearby Denton.
It will mark the first time Fort Worth will host the Bassmaster Classic, as well as the first time a major B.A.S.S. tournament has been held on this fishery.
"There are very few firsts in the world of sports," said Chase Anderson, Chairman of B.A.S.S. "We can't wait to have a historic first when fishing's biggest stage comes to Fort Worth. Our fans, sponsors and anglers are sure to be in for an incredible experience."

When Indiana and Michigan governors issued “Stay at Home” orders, many people have asked, “What about fishing?”
Yes, you can go. The public is urged to engage in recreational activity providing you do it a safe distance from others.
The following statement was made yesterday by the Indiana DNR on its Division of Fish and Wildlife Facebook Page:
“There has been some misinformation circulating on social media recently stating that fishing in Indiana is suspended until a later date. We would like to set the record straight that fishing is NOT suspended and it is an activity you can enjoy while practicing social distancing.”
Likewise, the Michigan DNR issued the following statement on its Facebook Page:
“We've received some questions concerning the activity of fishing following the recent "stay home, stay safe" order from Gov. Gretchen Whitmer. The order given today stated that individuals may still engage in outdoor activities while following proper social distance from those around you.
“Fishing is one of those activities that can be done while following social distancing recommendations. We encourage you to spend some time fishing, but please keep your health and the health of others in mind.
“As a reminder, we have taken steps to close some facilities and cancel or postpone meetings and events to reduce coronavirus risk to Michigan residents. Check www.Michigan.gov/DNRClosures for the latest information available.”
