ice building up on the shores of Mille Lacs Lake, Central Minnesota.

Fishing opener and icy lakes don’t mix well.

In many states, Fishing Opener is a richly traditional event.  Beyond the fact that it marks the end of winter and beginning of another year on the lake, Fishing Opener is rich in family tradition.  It is typical to see multiple generations loading up gear on the dock, a grandfather helping his grandson rig up his pole while saying something like “I helped your Dad do this when he was your age.”

A fishing opener on ice leaves many feeling ‘sad, sad, sad.’

Ice is covering most lakes in Minnesota.  One wonders if the crowded bars this fishing opener would welcome nICE mug, or throw the ice glass against the wall.
