Kayaks, such as this one in 2019, will be one of the things I will be checking today at the Chicagoland Fishing, Travel & Outdoor Show.

Nuggets come each year at the Chicagoland Fishing, Travel & Outdoor Expo. The Chicago area’s big show opens at noon today and runs through Sunday at the Schaumburg Convention Center.

I plan to be there for the opening, then posting a report late tonight. Weather permitting, I will be back Friday for my show favorite, the muskie panel hosted by Jim Saric. The ``Musky Madness Forum’’ is at 6 p.m. Friday. Saric is but one of the major players of both regional and national note at the show.

While I enjoy the major figures, I also like the nuggets. Two nuggets I hope to catch today are Heather Hodson (``Fishing Photography,’’ 3 p.m., seminar room) and YouTuber Oliver Ngy (``The Secrets to Trophy Fishing,’’ 5:30 p.m., Hawg Trough).

The Chicagoland Fishing, Travel & Outdoor Expo opens today and runs through Sunday at the Schaumburg Convention Center.

Capt. Dan Keating Schools are at Lake Michigan Angler in Winthrop Harbor this weekend, Salmon 101 is Saturday, Advanced Tactics & Seasonal Strategies is Sunday.
