Adults and kids from Silver Bay, Beaver Bay and Finland participated in an ice fishing contest on Lax Lake on Saturday, Feb. 9. The event has no official name, said one of its organizers, Gary Morris of Finland.

In years past a winter fishing contest was sponsored by the now disbanded Silver Bay VFW, but rather than see the event fall by the wayside, Morris and some local fisherman decided to plan a contest themselves.

"A bunch of guys who have fished together for years each put in $10 apiece," he said. This year there were 36 who put up the cash. The $360 was divided among first, second and third place prizes for the adult anglers and businesses were asked to donate prizes for the kids. Each child left the event with two or three prizes, Morris said.
