Minnesota welcomes back the fishing season with four days of activities, stretching from May 8-May 11. The 2014 Minnesota Governor’s Fishing Opener will be hosted by Gov. Mark Dayton and Brainerd Lakes Chamber, with Grand View Lodge as headquarters for the event. The event is being coordinated by Explore Minnesota Tourism, in partnership with the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources.
