the buzz





The North Star State is wedged between the Dakotas and Wisconsin, directly above Iowa. Minnesota shares a long border with Canada and is touched on to the northeast by Lake Superior. More than half of Minnesota’s population live in the greater Twin Cities metropolitan area of Minneapolis and St. Paul, leaving much of the state open to agriculture, prairie land, forests, and of course many, many lakes. In a land of 10,000 lakes, you can be sure that fishing is a major sport. The walleye is the official state fish of Minnesota; anglers also fish for bass, trout, pike, and muskies. Fishing is a year-round activity. In winter, intrepid anglers open holes in the ice and keep on fishing. Along the shores of Minnesota lakes, Native Americans once gathered wild rice (which is not really rice at all, but the seeds of a wild grass). Today wild rice is the official grain of the state of Minnesota – it makes a sensational side dish for fresh-caught fish or wild duck.
