1. Garmin’s kicking out new Perspective Mode.
> With the new Perspective Mode mount, the LiveScope LVS32 transducer can be easily adjusted to fit an angler’s fishing techniques and preferences, no tools required, and the chartplotter will automatically detect what mode is being used.
> Simply turn the transducer sideways to enable the new ‘top down’ Perspective Mode to see a wide view of what’s in front of the boat up to 50′ away. Point the transducer forward to see around the boat, and point it down to see directly below the boat.

2. MN: Bill would make “extreme poaching” a felony.
> “…under state law…each crappie or sunfish over the limit is $5…it’s $400 for bears and turkeys, $500 for deer and $1K for a trophy deer.
> “[The bill would] make it a felony to have game valued at more than $2K in your possession.
> “To reach this level…somebody would need to illegally take 400 crappies, 66 walleyes, 40 ducks, 5 bears, 5 wild turkeys or 4 deer or 2 trophy deer over the limit….”
Still feels like a slap on the wrist to me….
3. ND: Ice tourney cheaters busted…
…on the Missouri River…right below Lake Sakakawea. This write-up said:
> “…allegedly fishing outside of the tournament boundaries…also allegedly using 2 ice houses. (Rules stated only 1 ice house per team was allowed.) Sources say that 1 of the ice houses was covered with a white bed sheet to help it blend in with the surrounding snow and ice.
4. 2020 Lund Ultimate Fish Camp.

I got to help out at one a few years back…was AWESOME getting to fish out of each pro’s rig and see why they chose the model they did:
