WHAT A MONTH! April in North Dakota’s outdoors was memorable for many reasons, including a new state record walleye, an expanding ND High School Trap League, and incredible numbers of applicants for the “Big Three” tags. Catch up on all the action.
A LOOK AHEAD. While colder conditions continue, save for a quick jump into the 60s on Saturday, a welcome extended warmup appears to be on tap for the second week of May, certain to bring anglers out in droves and spur more outdoor activity.
TOURN IT UP. The Big Muddy Walleye Tournament is set for this weekend. Based out of the Broken Oar in Mandan, 100 teams and nearly 300 anglers will take part in the annual event in search of Missouri River Gold.
