In a few hours, I will be heading to opening day of the Chicagoland Fishing, Travel & Outdoor Expo at the Schaumburg Convention Center.

“The Schaumburg Show” leads this week in shows around Chicago outdoors. I hope to make it in time for Brandon Palaniuk at 1:30 p.m.

This weekend is also what has become a winter tradition of Capt. Dan Keating leading his Great Lakes Angler Super Salmon School at the Lake Michigan Angler.

Here are the shows this week:

Chicagoland Fishing, Travel & Outdoor Expo opens at noon today and runs through Sunday at the Schaumburg Convention Center. As I said above I hope to make it in time to listen to Palaniuk, but there are also a lot of other things I want to poke my nose into. The show does a good job of utilizing the knowledge of our top anglers in the area. Tentatively, I plan to make it back Saturday in time to hear Mark ZonaClick here for more information.
