NISSWA, Minn. -- By moonlight or by sunshine, it didn't seem to matter. Gov. Mark Dayton had nary a bite in two outings Saturday in the 2014 Governor's Fishing Opener on Gull Lake.


But that there was sunshine for the second part of Dayton's fishing marathon made up for a lack of fish.

Add guide Ray Gildow's brand of sunshine to the mix and it was good day.
