Today is the day! The Minnesota Fishing opener is finally here. We have been waiting for this day. The Minnesota fishing opener is a state holiday according to some.
We have been watching the ice slowly slowly melt. There is just enough open water around Ely, MN for a number of Anglers to get out and fishing. We were worried people might still be ice fishing!
Today is looking to be a windy day. With the cold spring water please be careful out there and wear your life jackets.
