Park Rapids Fishing & Activities
Picturesque Mantrap Lake’s 1,770 acres of deep, open water are bordered by 35 miles of shoreline, the ideal setting for a fishing adventure. With bays, islands and channels to fish by, an angler could spend years here in search of massive muskies. They can grow to over 50 inches at Mantrap, so be sure to bring a net!
Muskies aren’t the sole star of the show. Giant pike, abundant crappie, and both smallmouth and largemouth bass also make Mantrap Lake their home, so take your time mastering the nuances of this giant and undeveloped lake.
