Great Outdoors: Minnesota Fishing Opener
Sorry, this video is no longer available
The Minnesota fishing season officially kicked off this past weekend allowing anglers to cast their lines in the state’s vast lakes and rivers.
It all began at the Governor’s Open on Lake Vermilion for the first time in 10 years.
“Lake Vermilion is probably one of the greatest multispecies lakes we have in Minnesota,” said fishing guide, Billy Rosner. “I like to say it’s God’s country over here. I mean, there’s all the amenities, but if you want to get away from it, it’s the entrance to the Boundary Waters, you’ve got the Vermilion River that runs 40 miles into Crane Lake.”
Governor Mark Dayton ended up catching nine fish during the opener.
