Unfortunately, at the very last moment, I was not able to make my annual trek north for the Minnesota Fishing Opener this past Saturday. The boat was packed, supplies were all organized, the family was all primed to go…but, alas, it was not meant to be. As I have previously chronicled in this blog…my mother is currently in her waning days of life and we had to make the tough decision that it just wasn’t prudent to be 5–hours away (at Fish Camp) during this moment in time.
That being said, several of the other guys in my group did make the trek to Bemidji, Minnesota staying at the Finn-n-Feather Resort. Here’s their weekend in pictures. Enjoy!
Perhaps now you better understand why missing the Minnesota Fishing Opener is not something I plan to do next year or any year thereafter.
