I’ll Be Reeling In Tomorrow’s Minnesota Fishing Opener

Pete Hanson circa 1975

Ladies & gentlemen, start you boat motors, as the 2014 Minnesota Fishing Opener hits at midnight tonight. Walleye, Northern, Bass, Crappie, Trout, Perch. Bring ‘em all on. I will be up north at the cabin for the big day tomorrow. Part fishing, part tradition, part looking’ forward to summer (and probably part making a fire).

The ‘Governor’s Fish Opener‘ takes place Saturday on Gull Lake, near Nisswa. ‘Pete’s Fishing Opener’ will be taking place on Aerie Lake near Alborn (pictured above).

This year the Minnesota DNR has created a nice ‘Fish Minnesota‘ website that is a catch-all for all your Minnesota fishing info and questions.

Also convenient, you can now purchase your Minnesota fishing license online, allowing you to print multiple copies (one for my vest, one for my boat, one for my wallet, one for my tackle box). Get yours here.

Good luck, and take 98 Country with you on the lake this weekend (mobile at 98Country.com).

Reel ‘em in & share your pics! (Twitter, Facebook, email.)
