And you thought Wisconsin was weird Money Quote: There is some potentially good news on the horizon as a movement has begun to end the madness. The group “Minnesotans for an Early Bass Fishing Season” is growing in numbers and unifying its vision before presenting to the powers that be. Hopefully, Minnesota will recognize their hypocrisy and make May 14 the statewide catch and release bass opener. Because in the end, no one can tell me Wisconsin’s bass fishing is any worse than Minnesota’s. They just get to have more fun, which is what fishing is supposed to be about.
Go read the whole thing.
Personally I am of the view that all of the MN closed bass season should be open to catch and release fishing for bass. Making pre-spawn catch and release bass fishing illegal is asinine and done completely without any scientific justification in terms of conserving the resource.
