Daily Edge for Sat. Jan. 12

GOOD LOOKIN’ OUT. Calm conditions will make today – the chillier of the weekend pair – tolerable outdoors, so don’t abandon your plans, but maybe pack an extra layer.  We go around the horn with news and notes in today’s Three Things.

EDGE HOUR:    11:30AM-12:30PM. Watch for a mid-day bump in your ice fishing during the Edge Hour – perfect if you’re hitting one of the many derbies planned for today.


FEELIN’ FISHY. Scale size on fish can vary greatly.  From tiny ones on trout, to massive samples found on carp, fish scales serve a number of purposes from providing protection to coloring up the fish we’ve come to know.


CRUSH ON. Registration begins next week for the Bismarck-Mandan area high school trap teams participating in the North Dakota State High School Clay Target League.  In its first two spring seasons, the program has jumped from 38 shooters to 180, and 240 are anticipated this season from all six area schools.  Visit mrctl.org for more details on the teams and the ND CTL.


SNAPBACK. We’re watching next weekend’s conditions, as a cold snap is forecasted for the upper Midwest, suggesting that January really still is January.  We’ll keep an eye out while you enjoy this near-perfect weekend on ice.

Stay Sharp!
