Explore Minnesota's Alyssa Ebel joined Jerry Carlson and I Thursday to talk about the Governor's Fishing Opener. Alyssa is the organizer of the event at Lake Vermillion this year. The events begin today and continue through Saturday.
The appetite to let Minnesota's anglers hit the lakes a week earlier for the annual walleye opener seems to be fading at the state Capitol. Minnesota senators involved in outdoors issues gave it the thumbs-down Monday.
There's a move brewing in the Legislature to make this year's Minnesota fishing opener more mom-friendly. The state House has approved a game and fish bill with a provision to shift this year's game-fishing season up a week to May 5.
Gov. Mark Dayton is getting ready for Saturday's fishing opener by buying a fishing license. The first-term governor is scheduled to pick up a license at the Department of Natural Resources headquarters in St. Paul on Wednesday.
