Park Rapids fishing guide Jason Durham received praise from Gov. Mark Dayton Saturday morning after a successful fishing outing shortly after midnight.


“Jason is my new hero,” Dayton said Saturday morning. “He can walk on water.”

The governor caught a walleye at 12:25 a.m. Saturday. It was bigger than the other two fish he’s caught on previous openers combined, he said.
