Minnesota Fishing Opener, 070512, 030510      Photos

Fishing is a popular sport in
Minnesota , which is called “The Land of 10,000 Lakes.”  The fishing opener is this Saturday, May 10.  Some fish can be caught year-round, but many of the most desirable species are protected until the opener arrives*.  Thousands of Minnesota anglers will hit the lakes and rivers, hoping to catch their limit of fish.  Traditionally the governor of Minnesota goes fishing on the opener to promote the sport**.

The northbound highways on Friday, May 9 will be busy as people drive “up north” with their boats to the cabin.  Likewise, the southbound highways will be busy this Sunday afternoon as people return home from their fishing trips.  It is common for anglers to be on the water at their favorite “fishing hole”*** at sunrise on May 10.

Even those who don’t have cabins and boats can enjoy fishing from the shoreline of lakes, and there are many good fishing lakes within the metropolitan area.  Anglers must purchase a license to fish.
