A beautiful day welcomed the 1,192 young anglers who participated in Sunday’s youth perch derby sponsored by the Bemdji chapter of the Minnesota Darkhouse and Angling Associaiton on Lake Bemidji. The anglers were treated to hot chocolate and hot dogs and had the opportunity to win one of many door prizes, including 125 donated bicycles. Among the anglers was Wyatt O’Beirne of Bagley who kept a watchful eye on his bobber.
