Dennis Anderson – Star Tribune

ON UPPER RED LAKE – Opening day was different this year on this walleye wonderland of a lake, but the difference wasn't in the number of anglers who showed up eager to bait a hook with a minnow.

By all accounts, the flotilla of aluminum and fiberglass watercraft carrying bundled-up fishing hopefuls seemed every bit as large Saturday when Minnesota's inland-waters season opened for walleyes and northern pike as it did a year ago.
