The next governor of Minnesota will be in Albert Lea for the 2019 Minnesota Governor's Fishing Opener.

The Albert Lea Lakes Area is hosting the 72nd annual event for the first time in the history of the governor's opener.
Governor Dayton spent this last weekend fishing on Green Lake near Willmar.
He said that while this might be his last fishing opener as governor, he's still planning to cast a line, since he has plenty of grandchildren to spend future openers with.
Minnesota's newest governor will host the event on Fountain Lake in Albert Lea from May 9-12.
