Gov. Dayton was busy lowering expectations about his fishing prowess in the days leading up to the Fishing Opener. Dayton, however, didn’t get skunked at Pokegama Lake. Dayton caught a Northern pike earlier this morning.
The governor’s office says Grand Rapids fisherman Scott Glorvigen and Army National Guard Spc. Dennis Coan, who served in Afghanistan with the 114th Transportation Co., joined Dayton in the boat.
