HEAVY FISH. The duo of Dan Steir and Dennis Bense racked up ten big walleyes to take the Masters Walleye Circuit event on Lake Sakakawea. Their ten-fish, two-day total was 55 pounds eight ounces, or about 5.5 pounds per walleye. Results from the event are available on the MWC Facebook page.
LOOK UP! Comet Neowise has grown into a highly-visible object in the night sky, with both morning and evening viewing of its bright core and long-trailing tail. Space.com has all the information on where and when to look for this object you won’t see again for another 6,800 years!
