Gildow will be governor's fishing guide


Ray Gildow, a longtime professional fishing guide in the Brained lakes area, will be Gov. Mark Dayton’s guide in the 2014 Minnesota Governor’s Fishing Opener on May 10. Toby Kvalevog, also of the Brainerd area, will fish with Lt. Gov. Prettner Solon, Explore Minnesota Tourism officials said Friday.

This will be Gildow’s fourth opener where he’s served as a guide but in all of the previous events he said he’s hosted media anglers.
