There was some talk a few weeks ago about moving up the fishing opener to May 5th because of the record warm March. Well now isn't that funny, considering up North in the Arrowhead there is at least a half of foot of snow on the ground today. Either way, what seemed like a good idea at the time has now had several lawmakers re-thinking the idea.

I know I'm having a difficult time now trying to plan out when opener is.  We all made plans for the 12th, but now we are trying to figure out if we are going a week early or not.  My vote, just leave it how it is.  If you wanted to move the date, it's too late.  It doesn't really matter, I don't catch fish on opener anyway, it's kind of a curse.
