Minnesota Climatology has recorded it's 1st Minnesota lakes with open water for 2009.
3-22 Lake Sarah in Murray County
3-23 Lake Shetek in Murray County (When I was a Youth Pastor in Canby MN we were involved with Shetek Luthern Bible Camp. The camp is on road accessible Island with some good looking Shore fishing spots along the road. I can't remember if I caught a fish or not, I think I did but just don't have a clear enough memory. It's a nice camp.)
3-24 Budd Lake Martin County
3-24 Loon Lake Waseca County
It wouldn't surprise me at all if in the next few days they add more lakes as having gone out today with all the rain and wind we have had in the past couple of days.
