While the lakes were busy in Park Rapids last weekend, some traveled to Lake Kabetogama to get a taste of the 62nd annual Governor's Fishing Opener.


Several Park Rapids area representatives made the trip to Kabetogama, including Dennis Mackedanz, Blake Johnson, Katie Magozzi, Butch DeLaHunt and Jason Durham. This group, along with other volunteers, stepped up this spring to work on having Park Rapids host the Governor's Fishing Opener in 2012. The application is due Oct. 1.
