HURON – With spring’s arrival just a few days away, it’s once again time to starting thinking about spending leisurely hours in the South Dakota outdoors.
This weekend’s annual Performance Radio Outdoor Show at the Huron Arena is sure to put winter-weary folks in the right mood to explore all the possibilities.
Hours are 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 11 a.m. to 3 p.m. Sunday. Admission is free.
Two of the highlights of the show this year will feature a well-known South Dakota fishing guide and educator and the hosts of an Emmy-nominated television series.
Brad Jensen of Watertown will present a program on how to find and catch fish, beginning at 11 a.m. Saturday in the west lobby of the Arena.
Anglers who want to fish with Jensen can pick the lake of their choice or he will choose one based on his knowledge of the area and his network of bait shops and fellow fishermen.
He teaches different methods, such as casting for shallow water walleyes, slip bobber techniques, planer boards, snap jigging, pulling plugs for perch and more, according to his website.
Terri Lawrenz and Todd Magnuson are the hosts of the Nature Adventures Reptile Show.
