Lakes are opening up on Early Bird Fishing Guide!


Jeff Sundin on the Thursday Morning Show

Jeff Sundin is our Early Bird Fishing Guide, he joins Heidi Holtan on the Thursday Morning Show. This week they talk about how people are still waiting for ice out on most area lakes. Jeff reports that lakes are open in Minnesota south of Aitken. He predicts Winnie will be open for the Governor’s Opener with a few ice chunks still floating around.

Jeff and Heidi talk about the minnow shortage this year with no shiner runs happening yet on the bigger lakes. When Heidi asks for tips on where to go for opening fishing Jeff tells her going south or west is the ticket this year. For more fishing tips go to jeffsundin.com.
