PODCASTS: Paul Bunyan Country Podcasts with Brian Brohsdahl, Nate Blasing and Mandy Uhrich

The ice was shaping up nicely…and then all that wet snow. That has set everything back and we check in with Nate Blasing to find out how things are (or are not) shaping up in the Brainerd Lakes area. The cold has helped the ice continue to thicken even under all that snow. He’s got it all…plus a Holiday Fast Five.

Listen here:

Bro Brosdahl loves this time of year. It’s finally cool enough for him! Now if we can just get that ice thick enough. Bro tells us what he’s seeing on the ice, where to find them, what to spend your Christmas money on AND even a Holiday Fast Five.


If Mandy Uhrich had her way, she’d fish for everything and hunt for everything…but there’s only so many hours in the day…and pesky jobs too. Nonetheless, we’ll find out about her hunting adventures as well as her thoughts on this snow dump we got before the ice was ideal. Plus a Holiday Fast Five and a Fishing/Hunting New Year’s Resolution.
