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.
