May 11, 2010
Saturday is the first day of the 2010 Minnesota Fishing Season. It’s always a great day. But you know what happens after a few hours in the boat with your buddies.
The conversation dies.
Here is some additional information that may help to bridge those quiet times between bites.
First of all, the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources has assembled a huganic page of information related to the Minnesota Fishing Opener. There’s a lot to read on that page including the current list of Minnesota State fishing records and the DNR’s list of Top 10 Minnesota Walleye Lakes (Lake Vermilion is on that list). Politics is a topic that can ignite a lively exchange of viewpoints. Kick off the discussion with a story on Governor Pawlenty’s fishing trip to Lake Kabetogama. (With any luck the topic will turn to a partisan exchange on how to balance the state budget.) Fisheries management is a opinion sensitive topic. Study up at this DNR webpage.
Of course, the weather, is always a reliable and time-consuming topic.
Good luck on the lake!
