In approximately 5 days I will be heading into the boundary waters. This weekend is the statewide fishing opener for Minnesota. Most anglers across the state will be targeting stupid walleyes. Just like every other year, the masses will arrive at all of the popular and over-fished lakes. It will probably be the only day this year that many of them will even fish. Many disasters and fights to ensue. Very few fish caught.
Equipped with kayak, fly rods, and a weeks worth of gear/food – I will be slaying trout. Legendary brook trout. Lake trout on a fly. Twenty-five inch rainbows.
Don’t ever take up trout fishing. Keep pounding those 12″ walleyes. Leave the rest to me.
