Last Saturday provided the perfect setting for the 62nd annual Minnesota Governor's Opener, held on Lake Kabetogama near the Ash River Trail.


If you've never been to 25,760 acre Lake Kabetogama, you probably have two questions; how do you pronounce that funky name and where is it located?

First, you may want to say Kabetogama a few times in private before attempting an oral recitation at dinner parties or the bait shop counter. Try this with me: Ka-buh-toe-guh-muh.
