This trip was LONG overdue! My buddy hollywood_pete and his family moved to the Park Rapids area this past summer, and we finally made it over to get the kids together and check out their new crib. While the wives caught up and the kiddos played, we hit a PR area trout puddle for a couple of hours.

We started in 40-50' of water and had our best luck in that area, despite drilling a pile of holes up shallower as well. hollywood was using a darter and would switch it up to a small jig with a waxie if the fish were negative toward the bigger presentation. I stuck with a perch Lindy Frostee all day. We found hoards of fish 4-10' below the ice, and managed to ice 8-9 rainbows, with one nice fish thrown in for smiles...

Fun little trip!

Nice job guys! I was thinking of hitting a local trout hole too as they are always a blast!

What did the one in the picture measure Matt?

MasterGopherHunter, it is. I wasn't in Hubbard Co.

Loren, I will tape it before it gets cleaned. Rough measure on the scoop was 15-16".

I have a very good idea where he was fishing, and it's NOT in Hubbard Cty. Just because I post in the Leech Lake Area Forum, doesn't mean I am fishing Leech! Same thing here, Park Rapids Area.

Nice fish Matt!
