East Silent Lake Turtle

What a TURTLE!!!

While Perham, MN has the largest Turtle Races in Minnesota...East Silent Resort just may have the largest turtle. Check out the enormous turtle hauled in by the Olmstead family. During their many summer vacations at East Silent Resort, catching (and releasing) turtles has become a yearly tradition. This big fella (estimated 35+ lbs) may be their largest ever. Thanks for sharing your special tradition with the rest of us!!!

Large Bass

East Silent Resort Fishing

While East Silent Lake is known for its walleye...it also has large numbers of bass and pan fish. Kevin and the Rozeboom clan show off a nice 3.5 lb. large mouth bass caught from the dock. Kevin released the nice size fish shortly after the photo so you'll have a chance at him too!

Baseball Great Visits East Silent Resort

East Silent Resort had a very special guest recently...former major league baseball star Jack Dittmer (pictured below wearing hat). Jack and his wife Darlene, along with good friends (the Matt's) enjoyed touring Otter Tail County.

Jack played basketball, football, and baseball for the University of Iowa in the 1940's. In fact, he was the last athlete to earn 9 letters!!! He was chosen Iowa's Most Valuable Player in 1949, and was in the school record book for a long time as the career leader in touchdown catches with 13. As a senior, he set a Big Ten Conference season record for yards gained in pass receiving with 333.


Jack's first year in the majors was with the then-Boston Braves in 1952. In 93 games, he hit .193. But improvement came quickly.His best season was 1953, after the franchise was moved to Milwaukee. It was his first season as a regular, and he hit .266, belted nine home runs and 22 doubles and had 63 runs-batted-in.
