Minnesota fishing vacations are some of the best in the United States. From Central Minnesota known as Lake Country to the Brainerd Lakes area and north to Lake of the woods, you will find thousands of lakes to fish. Anglers keep 3.5
million walleyes every year. Nearly twice as many people fish for walleye in Minnesota as for other species. And they spend nearly twice the amount of time on the water. The Minnesota Walleye opener is May 12, 2018.
Walleyes remain in shallow locations until water warms in the summer months and bait supplies become more available in deeper water. During the fall, more trophy caliber fish are caught than any other time of the year. The fishing is good but the scenery with the changing colors makes for a great day on the lake.
