Beginning with a fishing lure swap meet tonight, there is stuff to do this weekend around Chicago outdoors.
- Let’s start with tonight when the Midwest Musky Club holds its swap meet at the Village Sportsmen’s Club in Alsip at 7 p.m. Bring your old or new lures to swap or sell.
- Mark O’Neill, pictured above, will be giving updates on HDS Gen 3 and HDS Touch from 9 a.m.-4 p.m. Saturday at the Cabela’s in Hoffman Estates. O’Neill, of structure-fishing.com, is the guy I consider best at explaining the ins and outs of electronics in a way that can be understood.
- From Saturday afternoon to Sunday morning, there will be the first BioBlitz at Dixon Waterfowl Refuge (Hennepin & Hopper lakes). I plan to be there Saturday afternoon and evening. Volunteers are needed, but you need to preregister at surveymonkey.com/s/DWRbioblitz
Emergency crews responded to a call of people in the water about 5 p.m. in the no-wake slip often referred to as “the Playpen,” Chicago fire officials said.
Brisker looked the part of expected Week 1 starter with impact plays. Sanborn, the Lake Zurich product, had a glorious Bears debut with two takeaways, a tackle for loss and two special-teams tackles.
Why are there so many good ones? Not that anybody’s complaining.
Jenkins was solid in the preseason game against the Chiefs on Saturday, which could help him find a spot. But not necessarily on the Bears.
