Early Bird Fishing Guide: Fishing Opener is here!


Early Bird Fishing Guide with Jeff Sundin

Jeff Sundin joins the Thursday Morning Show for Early Bird Fishing Guide. He talks with Heidi about the upcoming fishing opener this weekend. Jeff reports that most lakes in the listening area are now open.

Heidi and Jeff discuss the lack of live bait in the area, particularly shiner minnows. He advises the people that are coming from the Twin Cities area to fish up north to buy your bait down south. Jeff is providing a page on his website for a shiner supply update.

Opener advice includes checking your boats battery and using the MN DNR recreational compass interactive app on your phone. More at jeffsundin.com.
