Help getting puppy to come when outside.

Looking for some advice on what to try with my puppy. For the most part he listens great and will listen to all the commands he knows. When inside the house he will come and usually listen pretty well. I'm having trouble getting him to come when he's outside playing. If he goes to the bathroom and that's all he wants to do he will run back inside as soon as he's done, but when it's playtime or he gets distracted he will not come.

I've tried treats, works 100% of the time inside the house. But again, once outside he kinda just comes when he wants. It's a fenced in backyard so he's not on a leash. If inside the house, I can get him to sit, and then stay as I back up down my hallway (47 feet) and he won't move until I say "Bruno come" then he comes running to me and I reward. Or if he is on the other side of the room and I say come he usually listens. So he knows the command, just seems to do what he wants outside.

He's still young, almost 4 months so I know he gets distracted easily but sometimes he will just stare at me and listen to me call him. And he won't come

Get a longer lead and work with him. That way if you say come you can tug him back to you. Inside there's no distractions of the outside world that's exciting. So you have to work in your yard to get him to do it all with the distractions.

lorreann is an unknown quantity at this point
Be sure not to scold him when he comes in. Be sure he associates coming in with a positive reward. My dog likes to chase squirrels in the yard and the only thing I found that worked from breaking her hunting mindset and come when I called her was to know I had a biscuit waiting for her at the door. So it needs to be a positive thing to come in the house...whatever that would be to your dog.

He definitely knows it's not a bad thing, a lot of times he will come if I say "Bruno want a treat?" That will get his attention if he's not too distracted lol but other times he just won't come.

I'll have to get an extra long lead and work on it that way.
