Bristol Bay and Beyond, October 28, 2016: We’re happy to be back in our regular spot after a short break, and glad to you have joining us.  Coming up this week: "The winter's going to start off warm, but it looks like as we get along deeper into the winter, things should cool down to near normal." The latest on our winter outlook from the National Weather Service.

We’ll profile a fourth generation pilot who is just getting into the air taxi business, and already has a nickname according to his mom. "I was in the store the other day, and one of the passengers that flew in with Cade said how proud he was that Cade was flying, and the people were calling him "little cowboy," says Janet Schlagel. Plus BBRSDA Board President Mike Friccero joins to talk some post season fisheries issues and reflect on 2016. "My reaction to this season in a word is: WOW," he says. 

And Nanci Morris Lyon tells us how the annual Fish and Feast fundraiser in Bristol Bay went this year. "It has become the event of Bristol Bay and it makes it really fun because I refuse to let anyone know the menu before they get there so they never know what they're going to get fed." Plus the kids next door tell us what they’re gonna be on Monday. Those stories are coming up after a look back at some of the week’s news.
