New Record Walleye!

Bismarck Angler’s Walleye Breaks Record

 

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 32 and one-half inch fish broke the record that was established from Wood Lake in 1959 by Blair Chapman of Minnewaukan.

I was wondering when someone was going to post this. It hit Grand Forks Herald over 45 minutes ago. Now there won't be any more controversy over the record fish.

That is great, to reel in a 15lb 13oz walleye is something that most dream of but to be a State Record for sure those memories will always be there.  Broke a 60 year record so that is something to be talked about.  Congrats the to the angler, that is awesome and 1 hell of an accomplishment!  Great!
