Park Rapids American Legion Fishing Contest


Recommended Posts

The best thing to do is come a day early and do some scouting. The contest is held north of the public access on fishhook lake. It is never in the exact same place each year. Bring your sounder,do some scouting and get to the contest early to get your spot.

There are 4 fish categories including pike/walleye, bass, perch and panfish. The holes are predrilled and your outside the entire time. The key to having fun is to say warm. The boy scouts will be selling food and pop so do your best to support them. Of course jigging will always catch fish but the trick involves keeping your line and gear from freezing up. If your not set up for cold weather outdoor fishing then you may want to use a tip-up. I would fish with a vexilar and without a bobber in some shallow weeds. The shallow end is usually the northeast end of the boundaries. I usually use a haili or other smaller bait that will catch about anything. I've weighed in fish every year but have yet to come back with anything. It takes about 30 minutes just to weigh a fish so don't spend any time weighing in a micro perch. Remember that your going for 3rd place! that's the truck winner.
