Saturday marks the unofficial start to summer in Minnesota.
The state's walleye fishing opener got underway at 12:01 AM in the Land of 10,000 Lakes.
One of the hotspots is Lake Waconia, west of Minneapolis, where Governor Mark Dayton is casting his line.
As many as a half-million anglers typically hit the water on opening day in Minnesota.
And 1.4 million people buy Minnesota fishing licenses each year.
