Editorial: Good luck and safe fishing this weekend
Winter's hold has finally subsided as spring's arrival melted the final ice cover on Green Lake Thursday just in time for the Minnesota fishing opener today.
The Green Lake ice out date Thursday broke the 62-year-old record of the previous latest ice out date of May 7, 1951.
