Fishermen Hit The Water In Bismarck

Posted:

 

It barely made it above 40 degrees in Bismarck today, but that didn't stop die hard fishermen from hitting the water.

This afternoon dozens of boats were in the Missouri, filled with fishermen hoping to get a bite.

For some it's the first time they've been out on the water this spring.

<<"First time out this year, I just got the boat, batteries all charged and thought might as well take it out, it's a nice enough day to do it, so I was glad to go fishing" Bill Kraft said.
"This is our, this is my second time out, we were out on Saturday just test running, making sure that everything on the boat works, nothing wrecks a good outing like boat trouble," Jim Simmers said.>>

Bill Kraft and his brother Robert did catch a few fish today.

And even though it was a little cool outside, these guys are just happy to be out on the water.

<<"It's fishing it doesn't matter what the temperature is, or if the suns out, or if the wind is blowing, just better than working," Simmers said.
"Beautiful day, sun was shining, shining all day, the fish weren't real cooperative, but we did end up with four decent fish," Kraft said.>>

If you do plan to fish, you'll have to get a new license, licenses from last year expired March 31st.
