MINNESOTA — While some used Saturday to get some last minute gifts for their mothers, others tried to catch some Mother’s Day dinner.
The Minnesota fishing opener is here and the water may be choppy and the wind may be brisk, but area anglers found the perfect spot to reel in the big one.
Those anglers said last week’s snow has left some lingering effects.
“It’s a little rough right now, the water’s a little high. I think a lot of that snow had a lot to do with it,” said Pete Lemke of Kenyon.
He said he plans on fishing in Albert Lea every weekend possible for him despite his hour drive to get there.
Governor Mark Dayton got off to a hot start. He caught and released a walleye early Saturday morning near Park Rapids.
