Pelican Rapids, Minnesota

September 2001

Seven guys showed up for this year's trip which began September 8.  More were planning on coming during the week, but the events of September 11 drastically changed everyone's plans and priorities.

pr_2001fillet.jpg Gary and Rob (The "Minnesota Butcher") comparing their respective skills with the fillet knife.  The fish started out the same size.  Rob won the 2000 Big Fish Pot (based on pre-fillet weight).

pr_2001bungee2.jpg Jim and Lee.  Note the bungee cord. There's also one at the stern. It's customary to unhook both before leaving.
pr_2001cabin1.jpg One of Solinger's cabins and our 2001 Pelican Rapids headquarters.  This was an old boathouse that Jon Solinger's grandfather slid across the ice from the other side of the lake back in the 1950's.  He converted it into a spacious, "homey" cabin.
