What’s Up Outdoors: Fishing opener starts off with a bang
This year's opener was one of the nicest we’ve had in a while.
Is it possible we had a Minnesota fishing opener without snow or freezing temps?
Yep, this year's opener was one of the nicest we’ve had in a while. And you could definitely tell by the number of people on the water. Most boat landings were chaotic to say the least.
I did manage to stay up late and go out for the 12:00 a.m. start, which I haven’t done in a while. My buddy Timmy and I patiently waited for midnight and, with both of our first casts, we got a photo of our two walleyes before the clock struck 12:01 a.m. We really thought we were on to something but the next hour or so would go by with no other fish to show, but we sure started off with a bang.
