Tom Miller, Bismarck, holds a 14-pound, 4-ounce walleye donated to the North Dakota Fishing Hall of Fame by the family of the late Rev. Bill Rushford. Rushford passed away in Bismarck Oct. 31, 2013, at age 89. He caught the huge fish Nov. 30, 1987, at Van Hook. Miller is a member of the Fishing Hall of Fame board of directors. He is joined by Keith Witt, Garrison, left, the hall of fame president, and Greg Gullickson, Benedict, the hall vice-president. Rushford’s fish ranked as the state’s No. 1 hook-and-line caught walleye for nearly 24 years until Alecia Berg of Minot landed a 15-pound, 4-ounce walleye Aug. 27, 2011. Aldon Olson of Williston matched Rushford’s catch with a 14-pound, 4-ounce walleye on May 12, 2001. North Dakota Fishing Hall of Fame items are currently on display at North Country Marine in Garrison. Nominations for 2014 Hall of Fame inductees will be accepted until May 1.
