WISCONSIN-- Spring temperatures are finally here, just in time for fishing season.

In Wisconsin, the general fishing season opens Saturday, May 7.

All residents and non-residents over the age of 16 will need to have a valid fishing license with them.

The DNR is reminding anglers to check regulations before they head out as many walleye limits and size requirements have changed since last season.

Meanwhile, in Minnesota, we have a little longer to wait.

Spring fishing opener is May 14, for walleye, sauger and northern pike.

However, if you’re itching to get out on the water this weekend is “Take a Mom Fishing” Weekend and Minnesotan moms do not need to purchase a license.
