Last Saturday's Minnesota fishing opener brought anglers to the lakes area from far and wide to try their hands at landing a lunker. Rudy Salinas of Fargo put his boat into the clear water of Big Cormorant Lake Saturday morning. "I like this lake," said Salinas, who bought property near Cormorant several years ago. "But I'm still trying to learn it." For those who didn't put the boat in the water, Long Bridge near Deadshot Bay was heavily fished all day long Saturday by the young and old alike.
