We’ll be at the Bismarck Sports Show this afternoon helping out with the ND Clay Target League booth, so stop by and say hi! This afternoon and Saturday will be conducive to good ice fishing, so get out there and give it a go. We talk about the great access this winter has allowed for hardwater angling in today’s Three Things.
