Take a Mom Fishing Weekend

This Sunday is Mother’s Day and the state of Minnesota has a gift for Minnesota’s Moms. On Saturday and Sunday — May 10th and 11th — it’s official ‘Take A Mom Fishing Weekend.’

But what does that mean?

Well, tomorrow is the 2014 Minnesota fishing opener for walleye and northern pike and Moms will be able to fish without a license on both Saturday and Sunday.

So grab a card and some flowers — then grab a pole and some worms — and celebrate your Mom’s awesome-ness by taking her fishing this weekend.

Check out the DNR’s website for more details.

No boat? No problem!

Check out the Fishing in the Neighborhood program website for some helpful information and tips, and well as shore and pier fishing spots all over the seven county metro area.


Author’s Note to his Mother: Don’t worry, Mom — I know you don’t want to go fishing this weekend. I’ll skip the worms, and just buy flowers and take you to lunch instead. Love ya.

Brent and his dog Steve live in Eagan where they spend their time eating, sleeping and getting into adventures. Apart from the brutal, inhumane winters, they are both convinced Minnesota is a top five global destination. Brent is happiest when he is playing football, laughing, discussing philosophy, eating Chipotle, watching anything Larry David created, doing funny character voices while reading children's books to his two little nieces, or writing about whatever happens to cross his mind, unapologetically stretching sentence length and comma usage as far as the editor will allow. Also, Brent's nemesis is Burt Reynolds, though Mr. Reynolds is likely unaware of this rivalry.
