CATCH UP.  Learn about the new fishing regulations for the 2018-20 biennium in this week’s installment of the North Dakota Outdoors web series.  From bluegill to bait limits, the highlights you need to know are detailed up in this week’s segment.

AVERAGING OUT.  Long range forecasts show temperatures moderating into the very-seasonal 40s for highs, with a  few pokes at 50 possible in the mid-term.  While slightly below average, the consistency will help bring about more spring-like conditions and melt recent snow accumulations (and keep others from piling up).

CLIP & SPIN.  Looking for a quick addition to a crappie jig to add a little extra flash?  Maybe you need a little minnow-like attractant for those baitfish-free lakes?  Add in a clip-on spinner with a small Colorado blade for aggressive spring- and summertime slabs.

Stay Sharp!
