More than 1,700 anglers converged on Fish Hook Lake Saturday for an afternoon of suntans and sunfish.

The 14th annual Park Rapids American Legion Community Fishing Contest yielded 483 weighed fish, thousands more that never tipped the scales, and a perfect day on the ice. The haul was 197 fish more than were caught in 2011, tourney statisticians said. Perch and rock bass were the most caught species.
