WASECA, MN – It's t-minus two hours until anglers will be hitting the lakes in Minnesota.
Although, the weather is having an effect on how many will be out.
The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources blames the cool spring for slow fishing license sales heading into tomorrow's opener.
So far this year, only about 200,000 have been sold.
There are several factors Minnesota DNR officials believe are contributing to the slow sales.
"I think the drop in sales is likely due to the cold weather and the late ice out up north," Waterville Area Fisheries Supervisor T.J. DeBates said. "The northern third of the state, a lot of the larger lakes where a lot of people do their walleye fishing and pike fishing, are going to be locked up for the opener."
DNR officials expect the license sales to pick up after all of the ice melts off of the northern Minnesota lakes.
