Sturgeon Fishing it is!
The extended walleye season on the border waters has now closed and anglers are waiting for the sturgeon tag season to start on April 24th. Sturgeon fishing is a catch-and-release sport for now,k but once open, you can tag one huge sturgeon (45-50 inches inclusive or over 75 inches.) per year.
There are signs of spring all around with some plants shoving out shoots to greet the warming temperatures. Ice on Rainy Lake is not expected to last a week, so you should be able to motor around as you wish for the walleye opener on May 9th
