2014 Minnesota GFO Fishing Host Application

The 2014 Minnesota Governor’s Fishing Opener will take place on Saturday, May 10, with activities headquartered out of Grand View Lodge on Gull Lake near Nisswa. Among the festivities, 110 volunteer fishing hosts will take media representatives and state officials, including the governor and lieutenant governor, fishing on the Gull Lake Chain and surrounding waters.

A strong contingent of knowledgeable local anglers have already signed up to take visitors fishing and help showcase the wealth of angling and vacation opportunities available throughout the Brainerd Lakes Area. A limited number of fishing host positions still remain, although interested parties are strongly encouraged to sign up before the roster is filled.
