Rear caliper won't release.

I have an '04 3/4 4x4 that the left rear brake has been dragging on. I have it apart but can not get the caliper to back off the disc. Not sure if it is the caliper it's self or just the corrosion from this winter. Pads look fine and braking always feels fine. Every thing was replaced just before last winter and nothing looks amiss.:confused013:
Any ideas on how to get it to let go with out damaging any parts. A large pry bar against the rotor pulling on the pad edge is doing nothing.

If opening to bleed of fluid lets me get the caliper off will this cure the problem or is it another issue that needs addressed? As it is now I can't even move the disc let alone get the caliper off.
