Fishing Seasons – Minnesota

April 17, 2013 8:41 pm0 commentsViews: 103

Below are the key fishing season dates to know in Minnesota as posted by the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
Be sure to note key dates such as “Take a Mom Fishing Weekend” which happens to coincide with opening weekend and Mother’s day, a traditional point of friction for some Minnesota anglers over the years.

My brother in law Dave managed to get away with giving my sister Midge a fishing boat one Mother’s day, but spouses as tolerant as her are pretty rare.

If you have a Mother’s day story you would like to share here on the Occasional Fisher, drop Bobberhead Bob an email at enetwal @ gmail.com.
