The weekend of the Big Game usually has very few shows and related events. And note the main one this week – Capt. Ralph Steiger’s “Learn Lake Michigan Seminar” – is on Saturday, not Sunday the day of the Big Game.

Also, as has been the case the last few years, Rich Komar usually sends some tickets and I run a contest before the Tinley Park Fishing Show, entering its 26th year on Feb. 9-10.

This year for each of the five best stories about the Tinley Park Fishing Show that I receive –, Dale Bowman on Facebook or @BowmanOutside on Twitter – by 5 p.m. Friday, I will send a pair of tickets.

There’s also some ice fishing events this weekend, nearly perfect timing in this weather.

Here are the shows/ice-fishing events this week:

Capt. Ralph Steiger’s “Learn Lake Michigan Seminar” is at the Lake Michigan Angler in Winthrop Harbor on Saturday.
