Anglers spending time on the ice in the Park Rapids area are experiencing some great panfish activity in addition to walleyes and northern pike. Most lakes offer 8-12" of ice which has given opportunity to travel by snowmobile, ATV and in some cases, vehicles for access. (Jason Durham / For the Enterprise)
