PARK RAPIDS - A city of 2,500 sprang up on the Fishook Lake in Park Rapids on Saturday, partaking in the region's largest ice fishing tournament.

The 11th Annual Community Fishing Contest attracted professionals, families, old guys and teenagers onto the ice - most dressed as if they were attending a casting call for the movie "Fargo."
