Guide Confident Of Pawlenty Landing Fish

WHITE BEAR LAKE, Minn. (AP) ―

Gov. Tim Pawlenty's guide says he's confident he'll help Pawlenty land a fish during this weekend's Governor's Fishing Opener.

Dennis Merry of Hugo will take Pawlenty and his wife, Mary Pawlenty, out on White Bear Lake at 3:30 a.m. Saturday.

Merry says the early start should help Pawlenty land a walleye on the "really clear" lake. He says White Bear Lake is known as a "night-bite lake."

Merry, 33, says he fishes White Bear Lake four to five times a week, both in summer and winter.

Pawlenty has a string of catching at least one fish at each Governor's Fishing Opener.

It's the first time in the 61-year history of the Governor's Fishing Opener that the event has been held on a metro lake.

I bet the first fish is caught by his wife again.

    • Glad Lavine is gone! Added nothing but slam dunks to the team. I've been out of town for the past week, so I was very delighted to hear about this trade today.
    • Not unless they ban the toothpick crossbow here too. Takes those beetles out clean.   
    • That's called seasoning. Two years ago I took a trip to Germany and we spent a few days in the black forest where I got to see some authentic old world smoke houses dating back to the 1500's and the amount of buildup on the walls, hooks, poles etc is part of what gives their hams,bacon and sausage their flavor. They use juniper wood for smoking. Absolutely delicious.  But yeah, foil, Pam and other things can help. You can also use a power washer to clean them.
    •   "We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that."   Thanks for making my nite.  
    • Also woodpeckers beat on stuff to mark their territory.   I am pretty sure that there aren't any bugs on my metal downspouts.
    • You will often discover that birds are picking very small insects from decks and other woodwork around your house;  they do the same with trees and any other structure that might hold the bugs. We see them often on our decks and they usually pick a little bit and then move on,  perhaps just checking to see if there is anything edible there. These rascals also love hummingbird or oriole nectar, sunflower seeds and of course suet in winter. We have discovered  many species that will head straight for the nectar for orioles or hummingbirds and also plunge their beaks eagerly into the grape jam bowls orioles love. Birds will eat a greater variety than you might think. We have found they do not like limburger cheese, hot dogs, or Makers Mark bourbon.  I am thankful for that.
    • And pretty soon there'll be little chinese restaurants springing up everywhere...there goes the neighborhood. 
    • I use the ball of aluminum foil, too. Works well.
    • lay them in the grass over night and wipe off in the morning.  the dew soaks in if it's moist out.  other wise lay them out and place wet towels over them for awhile..
