GARRISON, Minn.—We're barely into our first drift on this breezy Saturday morning, and Scott Jensen is into a walleye. A good one, too, by the looks of it. For his two fishing partners, both UND hockey fans, it's tough to take when a fisherman wearing a blinding-yellow Minnesota Gophers hoodie hooks into the first fish of the day. At least he's replaced his Gophers hat from the previous evening with a Minnesota Twins cap. "Don't lose that fish," one of his buddies blurts, in keeping with fishing trip tradition; or words to that effect.
