Alecia Berg hadn't wet a line this year before Saturday night, when she used her iPhone to buy a North Dakota fishing license on the way to the Garrison Dam Tailrace on the Missouri River.


"I've been on the boat quite a few times but not fishing because we have an 8-month-old daughter," said Berg, a Minot Realtor.

A few hours later, her first fish of the evening would turn out to be the largest walleye caught in North Dakota in more than 50 years.
