Elbow Lake Lodge 2015 Fishing Opener Specials | Explore Minnesota

The Minnesota Fishing opener is an iconic event throughout the State of Hockey … I mean Minnesota. Each year, the state watches as the Minnesota governor casts the first line into the water representing the beginning of a season of fishing and fun on one of our “10,000” lakes. This year, with the Minnesota Wild in the playoffs, and an early fishing opener, there is sure a lot to get excited about this May. Elbow Lake Lodge is celebrating the Minnesota fishing opener by offering a great deal. So it’s time for you to stand up right now and say it with me … Let’s! Play! Hockey! … and do some fishing on the melted ponds. It’s time to explore Minnesota.

But What About The Fishing you ask?

I have fished this lake for over 20 years. It has plenty of Walleye that can be found in the shallows this time of year. When the bite is on, get ready, because it will be crazy. You will also find plenty of Northern Pike by fishing the shoreline. Elbow Lake is also an excellent bass lake, so think about visiting after the bass opener as well.
