Alexandria’s Gina Mickelson and her boyfriend Andrew Hittle had an opener to remember with a couple of giant walleyes to show for their efforts. Mickelson and Hittle were fishing Lake Ida with shiner minnows in about eight feet of water on Saturday. Hittle got the day off to a good start with a 31.5-inch, 12.8-pound walleye. A little while later, Mickelson got in on the action with another big fish, this one measuring 30.5 inches and weighing 10.9 pounds. “Andrew caught his first and I caught mine a few casts later,” Mickelson said. “It was a blast.” (Contributed)
