Gov. Pawlenty catches northern pike in fishing opener
A pre-dawn start paid off for Gov. Tim Pawlenty, who has reeled in a 15-inch northern pike during the Minnesota fishing opener.
Pawlenty spokesman Alex Carey said the governor was on White Bear Lake at 3:30 a.m. Saturday and caught the 1.5 pound fish around 7:30 a.m.
Pawlenty and first lady Mary Pawlenty caught at least four fish as of late Saturday morning.
