"Extra days of fishing for walleye, sauger, northern pike and several other game fish are among new regulations that will affect anglers in the near future, according to the Minnesota Department of Natural Resources (DNR). Changes for the coming fishing season and a summary of all Minnesota fishing regulations are included in the 2006 Fishing Regulations handbook, available now wherever fishing and hunting licenses are sold. The 2006 fishing license year begins March 1."
"Anglers will have extra days to pursue walleye, sauger, northern pike, muskie, largemouth and smallmouth bass, thanks to a recent change that keeps the fishing season for those species open until the last Sunday in February Feb. 26 this year."
If you've got short, stubby fingers and wear reading glasses, any relaxation you would normally derive from fly fishing is completely eliminated when you try to tie on a fly. ~ Jack Ohman, Fear of Fly Fishing, 1988
