Daily Edge for Sun. Aug. 19

FULL FRONTAL.  The overnight front and the strong winds behind it will keep many off the water today.  While we wait for the rebound of better conditions, we go around the horn in today’s Three Things.

OPEN UP.  For a full listing of North Dakota’s state openers, visit the NDG&F Season Dates Page.  It’s a complete calendaring resource setting out not only this year’s opening and closing dates, but tentative forecasts for future seasons until they’re confirmed.

TEN INCHER.  Not that you’d find a nightcrawler that long, but on snells with three hooks, the maximum distance between the first and last hook can be 10 inches, and not 10 inches between every hook, as clarified by the NDG&F Department for Dakota Edge Outdoors.

LOON MOVES. Looking east to loon populations, you’ll start to see seasonal movements in the next few weeks.  Adults will depart the region around Labor Day, while this year’s crop of young birds will take off a couple weeks later, when their wings and flight muscles are strong.

Stay Sharp!
