Crookston, MN (WDAY TV) - Another huge story Saturday, Minnesota's fishing opener kicked off just after midnight.
It's practically an unofficial holiday for many fishers throughout the region; with around 500,000 people expected to throw out a line Saturday.
DETROIT LAKES, MN - Things are looking good for this year’s fishing opener on Saturday – the ice has been off area lakes for about two weeks, the shiners have started to run, crappies are biting – and people are eager to get out on the open water after a long, cold winter.
The Wisconsin fishing opener is six days away, and people were still ice-fishing this past week. Many anglers think most lakes will remain ice-covered when the season opens Saturday. That was the case last year, too.
“Everyone around here — we’re all grumpy and gloomy,” said Steve Genson at Hayward Bait and Tackle in Hayward. “Last year was pretty good. Tourism here was good. We just lost a whole month.”
