Hand to Hand Combat for Dakota Eye’s Hand to Hand Combat for Dakota Eye’s

Hand to Hand Combat for Dakota Eye’s By Tom Kemos As a touring Walleye Pro, I have been fortunate enough to experience the finest walleye fisheries in the World.  While I cut my teeth and still reside in Wisconsin, the waters of North and South Dakota feel like home to me.  I love the ever changing water conditions, whether it is the super fertile prairie lakes or the rapidly changing Missouri River system.  One thing that all of the walleyes in these two great states have...

The Ongoing Search for Big Fish The Ongoing Search for Big Fish

The Ongoing Search for Big Fish by Doug Leier NDGFD I spend the bulk of my fishing hours each year at the same mom-and-pop pond. The family and I enjoy fishing, in our own way, just like everyone else. Some may prefer the world-class fisheries of Devils Lake, Lake Sakakawea or the Missouri River System.
