Minnesota’s State Fish
The walleye is the most sought-after fish in Minnesota. It’s
plentiful, fun to catch, and tasty to eat. About 4. 6 million
pounds of walleye are harvested annually.
Ice Fishing Fishing here doesn’t stop when the lakes
freeze! Just drop a line through a hole in the ice. Fish out in the
open air, or rent an ice fishing house with the comforts of home.
