My wife and I are on a mission to visit all the oversized local landmarks throughout Minnesota. This blog chronicles those visits and covers other related topics.

World's Largest Fishing Bobber

June 18th, 2006 - Our first stop for the project.
World's Largest Fishing Bobber
We went to visit my wife's grandfather at his home near Nisswa, which is also very close to Pequot Lakes. In the afternoon we had some time to get away and head into Pequot Lakes. While there we went into a couple gift shoppy type places, got some ice cream, and looked at a big stuff. Ice cream and big stuff is a combination we really like. Pelican Rapids is also a great place for ice cream and big stuff.

The World's Largest Fishing Bobber, or Paul Bunyan's Fishing Bobber as I've also seen it called (I don't know why Paul would write Pequot Lakes on his fishing bobber, but ok.), was the city's water tower until 2000 when it was replaced. The fishing bobber still stands, obviously, but is empty.
