Walleye and Northern Pike Caught at Penasse, MN

This postcard pictures the members of the Knights of Columbus work party with the Walleye and Northern Pike caught on their annual outing to Lake of the Woods. The people in the photo were from Hastings, Minnesota. The location is American Point Resort, Penasse, Minnesota.

This postcard was postmarked at Penasse on June 17, 1966. There is no writing in the message section on the back. Possibly someone was just interested in getting a Penasse postmark. Penasse is the northernmost populated place in the contiguous United States. It had a post office from 1920 to 1969 that was the farthest north in the lower 48 states.
