Around 500,000 people are expected to fish on opening day of the walleye and northern pike season Saturday. DNR Fisheries Chief Don Pereira says there is something special about being on the water during the first day of the season. He says that a big part is the tradition of it. After a long Minnesota winter, spring is finally here, you’ve got the boat out and it’s such a deeply rooted part of Minnesota culture. With over 5,000 lakes accessible for fishing and about 15,000 miles and streams it’s just central to what Minnesota is about. The annual Governor’s Fishing Opener is on Gull Lake in Nisswa this year, and KNUJ will again be bringing you reports from the opener throughout the weekend.
