5/11/2013 Lake Mille Lacs Non Fishing Opener / Ice Covered Lake B-Roll

Today was the state fishing opener in Minnesota but for areas north of the Twin Cities, the fishing opener is on hold until the ice melts away.

Normally on this day, the lake is filled with several hundreds of boats for the fishing opener but today you had to hunt to find one boat on the tiny sliver of open water.

B-Roll footage documenting the historical failure of the 2013 Minnesota fishing opener at iconic Mille Lacs Lake in northern Minnesota due to ice still covering most of the lake that largely did not occur due in part to the lake being nearly 97% ice covered for the date which has never occurred to this extent.
