Thoughts on the fishing opener
May 14, Minnesota's Fishing Opener, is like a second Christmas to many folks in our neck of the woods, myself included. This year especially, it seems like we have been cooped up in the house for an unbelievable amount of time. With this winter unwilling to release its icy grip, some of those early pan fishing opportunities just haven't been available. If you are like me, you can't wait to hit the soft water and chase some wily walleyes or maybe some toothy pike.
