In 1983, Ron and Al Lindner along with In-Fisherman Magazine and TV show owned and operated "Camp Fish"-- The finest and most comprehensive fishing camp in the United States. It was located on the shores of Long Lake in Walker, Minnesota. It's purpose--to teach the sport of fishing to all anglers. Today, a group of "Camp Fishers" are aiming to get 'er going again.
Gail force winds, surprise thunderstorms and cold fronts, anxious eager clients, dozens of different lake environments, 100's of special requests and thousands of miles of road all came together to make the 2010 guiding season a success.
What's the big deal? If you wanna be a fishing guide, then get the Coast Guard Captains license and be proud of it. Minnesota fishing guides need standards and regulations whether through the Coast Guard or on a state level.
Whether the focus is the famous walleye or a weekend with the family, the 2009 Minnesota fishing opener is getting closer by the minute. The reels need new line, the boat needs a tune-up, hooks need sharpening, and dont forget the Mother's Day card!
