Thanks Artie for the Fishing Opener update and picture! (report below) Great fishing and limits of walleyes were reported for the Minnesota/South Dakota border water opener on Big Stone Lake which started at midnight Friday April 17. The first BIG fish of the year may have gone to the Bryon Schloemer of New Market, MN! Caught just 10 minutes after midnight was this nice 29″ walleye which is a personal best for Byron! The fish was caught in 6′ of water on the rocks! The first BIG fish of the year may have gone to the Bryon Schloemer! Caught 10 minutes after midnight was this nice 29″ walleye!

Our second Community Blogger went on-line last night! Janine Teske will be blogging for Clinton – and she has been busy. With Janine’s experience with WordPress (the blogging software used for this site) on the Clinton Celebration website, there was no learning curve for her – as soon as the log-in information was sent to her she was working on the site! She was also busy collecting Clinton area business information before she was sent the log-in information and has quite a list of updates. The business listing on MNbump will be updated with those additions today! If you are in the Clinton area and have a business or an event that you’d like covered, please contact Janine. Link to Clinton’s Blog and Janine’s contact information: MNClinton.wordpress.com Bloggers for Ortonville, Graceville & Johnson, and Beardsley & Barry will be going on-line soon!
