Across Minnesota, an easygoing fishing opener yields smiles and plenty of bites

Minnesotans jockeyed to launch boats from crowded access points all over the state Saturday as bluebird skies, cool water and mild breezes beckoned them in large numbers to partake in the fishing opener.

The bite was slow in some places and adequate in others, but the elements were universally sublime.

"Everyone's happy," said Robyn Dwight, who fished with her husband, Brian, on Upper Red Lake in Beltrami County. "It's nice just to be able to sit on the lake and relax. There was just enough breeze to rock our boat and put me to sleep."
