Funny weather leaves area anglers cheerless in opener


Gov. Mark Dayton didn’t have any luck landing a lunker on Minnesota’s fishing opener in Brainerd and few, it appears, did much better.

As openers go in west-central Minnesota, this one was fair to cloudy.

The weather was mild (in the 50s) but the lakes are cold and the fish, overall, seemed disinterested.
