Vikings lineman teamed up for Governor's Fishing Opener

While the crowd gathered at Breezy Point Resort around noon, anxiously waiting near the docks last Saturday to hear if the Governor and Lieutenant Governor had enough luck to land Minnesota's state fish, a crew of four anglers docked their boat and instantly changed each reporter's focus.

Mathias Carlson, of Pequot Lakes, was one of those anglers who had just experienced the opener of a lifetime. Not only did the fourth grade Eagle View Elementary School student get a chance to take part in the 2008 Governor's Fishing Opener, he spent the morning fishing with his dad, Neil, guide Bart Taylor from Cross Lake and Minnesota Viking's offensive lineman, Steve Hutchinson.
