ND angler w/e broke record

   :reporter; ND angler's walleye breaks 60-year record :doah:

 :coffee: .......
BISMARCK Neal Leier's walleye caught on May 18 broke the longest-standing state record fish in North Dakota, one that stood for nearly 60 years.

The Bismarck angler reeled in a 15-pound, 13-ounce walleye from the Missouri River near Fox Island, besting the old record by one ounce, the state's Game and Fish Department said in a release.

 :popcorn: ....
The 32-inch fish broke the record that was established from Wood Lake in 1959 by Blair Chapman of Minnewaukan

Interesting story his brother had caught 3 other big walleye over 13 lbs this spring they were using his boat.  They brought their dad along who backed the boat down the ramp the brothers launched, and Dad went to park the boat. Brother turned on electronics and saw a school of walleye just off boat dock. Pulled the boat to shore waiting for Dad to get back and told his brother not a big fisherman to cast a setup jig with white plastic tail ( no minnow).  First cast he thought he had a snag! Till the walleye head shake.   :happy1:
