The late ice-out on area lakes this season has put a damper on the walleye fishing opener. “We don’t make any money, and it’s a weekend we don’t get back,” said John Store, owner of Quality Bait & Tackle in Detroit Lakes. Resorts that cater to anglers have been seeing cancellations and reschedulings, said Dan Berg, owner of Lakecrest Resort on Long Lake near Detroit Lakes, and president of the Minnesota Resort and Campground Association. “If people are there to fish, and they can’t put their boat in the water, they’re not going to come,” he said.
