The Minnesota Department of Natural Resources invites Minnesotans interested in fishing, wildlife and outdoor skills to tune into upcoming webinars that will discuss fishing lure choices and walleye fishing basics.

The first, on DNR staff’s favorite fishing lures, will be at noon Wednesday, May 11. As the fishing season opener nears for many of Minnesota’s game fish, DNR staff members will share some of their top picks for fishing lures and how to use them.

The second webinar, on walleye fishing for beginners, will be at noon Wednesday, May 18. Join pro-angler and bait shop owner Nancy Koep as she covers the basics of walleye fishing.

The webinars are part of the DNR’s Minnesota Outdoor Skills and Stewardship Series, which aims to give participants quick, relevant information on upcoming seasons and events, as well as skills to enjoy these opportunities.

The webinars are free, but registration is required. More information, including registration information for webinars, is available on the outdoor skills and stewardship page of the DNR website at mndnr.gov/Discover.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "Pineandlakes Echo Journal." Often, the "Pineandlakes Echo Journal" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
