Good cloudy morning from Mill Stream Village.   Tomorrow is the fishing opener.  The first Minnesota Governor’s Fishing Opener was held in 1948 on Lake Mille Lacs. The event was established as a way to improve Minnesota’s economy through the development and promotion of the state’s recreational opportunities, especially fishing. This year my son Erik is the chair of the planning committee.  The festivities will be held in Otter Tail County.     

A couple of weeks ago Erik was having a tough time getting enough boat hosts to sign up.  So I used my Friday note to “get the word out”. 

Erik was able to find enough boat hosts to match up with the media folks that signed up for the event.  Walleye Wille and his grandpa Lee will be taking someone out on East Silent Lake on a pontoon.   My brother Craig is going to help and my sister’s grandson Adam talked a buddy with a boat into helping out also.

I love it when a plan comes together.
