When you go down to the dock and see this .................
........ it might be time to admit that the open water fishing season in the Park Rapids area is over! And when you think back over the year, the ice went out on May 11th (opening day for fishing in Minnesota), and started to return on November 11th. That's just six months of open water, which is a shorter fishing season than normal.
As many of you probably know, Bob loves to fish. He made a conscious effort this past season to fish Two Inlets Lake and other Park Rapids area lakes whenever possible. He finally called it quits when he saw that the overnight temperature was going to be a mere 5 degrees three nights ago. He winterized his boat and put it in storage until next spring.
Overall he had a great season of fishing in northern Minnesota. Not only did he catch many walleyes, but he also caught a wide variety of fish species, and many of them were BIG. I thought I'd share a little fish gallery of pictures to give you an idea. If you were one of the lucky people that got to spend time in the boat with Bob, you may find yourself in one of these pictures. (All of the fish pictured in this blog were released.)

Fish of a lifetime for Russ! 29.5" walleye released. A fine example of a Park Rapids, MN walleye!
On a scale of 1 to 10, Mark rated his fishing trip with Bob a 20! A 29.5" July walleye. Not common!
38" northern. A complete fluke while walleye fishing. 27" whitefish. Whitefish live in the coldest water in the lake.
This eelpout was a complete surprise to haul into the boat. Another surprise was this different phase northern.
Some of the best panfishing is right off the dock. A beautiful September walleye, released.
Two Inlets Resort is a family fishing resort in the Park Rapids, MN area. Bob's favorite summer activity is walleye fishing, and he often takes resort guests out for the chance to catch a walleye, northern, crappie or small mouth bass.
