No Fish Tales Here

     I admit I have been doing quite a bit of joking around lately but I am telling the truth when I say the fishing has been awesome this year.  Almost every group has reported great fishing and our guests are having a blast.  If you don’t believe me then check out these pictures and reports from the Minnesota DNR, or better yet, come on up and see for yourself.

Preliminary catch, harvest, and pressure estimates obtained during spring creel surveys indicate that fishing is, and should continue to be, very good to exceptional throughout many of the state’s major fishing waters, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR)….

Although spring fishing has been superb, the overall angling pressure has been below average. This year’s late ice out and prolonged, cold spring have kept some anglers off the lake.

But, as many anglers know, a late spring and cool water temperatures usually means that good walleye fishing will extend later into the summer. As expected, angling activity is picking up.

“If you haven’t gotten your line wet yet this year, there is still plenty of time to get in on the excitement,” said Drewes. “Summer is just beginning and fishing licenses are good until next April, so grab your gear and go. Or, better yet, bring along a friend or neighbor kid and introduce someone new to fishing.”
