Gov. Dayton catches first walleye at 12:25 a.m.
Ice is receding on the Fish Hook chain’s shorelines, “but not enough to fish” Saturday, May 11, the opening day for inland walleye, northern pike and lake trout.
Gov. Mark Dayton arrived Friday afternoon and addressed the Park Rapids community.
He joked about his past luck with fishing.
“I only hope I don’t disgrace the state of Minnesota and not catch a fish,” he said.
