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.
