Governor Dayton has some political competition for this year’s Governor’s Fishing Opener. Republican rival Marty Seifert says he’ll hold his own 2014 Fishing Opener at Thumper Pond Resort and Rush Lake in Otter Tail County May 9th and 10th. Seifert is inviting reporters to cover his first catch Saturday morning. He’s one of five major candidates vying for their party’s endorsement at the Republican State Convention in Rochester at the end of May. The “real” Governor’s Fishing Opener has Governor Dayton travelling to Grandview Lodge on Gull Lake May 9th and 10th, and we will again have comprehensive coverage here on KNUJ.
