OUTDOOR UPDATE:

 

WINTER WRAP.  Director Terry Steinwand reviews all the bills that impacted the NDG&F Dept., hunting and fishing in the state as part of the recently-wrapped 66th session of the ND legislature in this week’s Outdoors Online.

 

STING IN SPRING.  DEO’s Nick Simonson shares two livebait rigs to help with finicky spring walleyes on the Run Down at Runnings.com.  From the subtle Lindy rig to adding a little sting to a jig, these measures help catch moody post-spawn ‘eyes.

 

STILL CHILL.  Cooler temperatures and calm conditions settle in for today and tomorrow and hang on through much of the week.  Any signs of a renewed spring warm up are at least six days out.

Stay Sharp!
