ACT PREP COURSE TO BE OFFERED

During this time of year we find many students thinking seriously about what their future may hold and what will be needed to help them make their dream career a reality.

If you have a desire to put a lunker walleye on the wall, and you don’t want to drive all the way to Ohio’s Lake Erie for a hopefully “sure thing,” you might consider a spring trip to Green Bay, WI. While we South Dakotans enjoy great walleye fishing, catching a big guy has become increasingly difficult as Oahe isn’t what it was years ago. I have long been an advocate of shutting down the walleye season during the spring spawn in March and April, at least in our Missouri River system, and what Wisconsin does is worth a hard look.
