New state record walleye
Tom Volk, Lincoln, set a new state record for walleye with this 16 lb., 9 oz. catch on Sunday. The 32 1/2-inch fish was caught from shore along the Heart River in Mandan. The previous record was 15 lbs., 13 oz. caught by Neal Leier of Bismarck on May 18, 2018. Leier’s fish came from the Missouri River and broke a record that stood for nearly 60 years.
