South Dakota National Guard Converge on Dry Lake Gary Howey

Not far from Madison, S.D., you will find Dry Lake 2, one of the numerous Glacial Lakes located in Northeastern South Dakota
In mid July, members of the South Dakota National Guard converged on this lake, they weren’t there to assists with some natural disaster as they have on many other occasions, they were there to find out who would have the bragging rights for the 2015 SDNG Pro-Am Walleye Tournament. The 2nd annual event was sponsor by Berkley, the South Dakota National Guard, Lake Area Walleye Club, The Walleye Guys and others.
Members of the Guard, along with potential Guard members joined with members of the Lake Area Walleye Club, Madison, S.D. and several professional anglers to compete in the one-day SDNG Walleye Fishing Tournament.
Cameraman Bill Miller and I were fortunate enough to film the event for one of our shows on our Outdoorsmen Adventures television series. Our job would be to move from boat to boat, recording the event, which would air during our 2016 Outdoorsmen Adventures television season.As we arrived at the lake, it looked to be a great day for fishing; overcast with a slight breeze, perfect walleye fishing weather.The ten teams had their boats lined up along the fence line as they made plans on how to attack the lake. Dry Lake 2 is a 6,500-acre lake with a maximum depth of fifteen feet like many of these shallow northeastern South Dakota lakes and has a healthy weed growth coming out from the shoreline.
Prior to the start of the tournament, president of the Lake Area Walleye Club, Mike Dorris introduced the teams and explained the tournament rules, with each team’s top five largest fish used for heaviest weight to decide the winning team. [Read more…]
