A sunny and mild day met hopefuls at the 48th annual VFW Post 6204 fishing contest on Lax Lake Feb. 20.
With a siren blast from the Lake County Search and Rescue team at 11 a.m., the fishing was on.
The first fish registered was a 16 pound, 3 ounce northern from Doug Lillback, easily the winning fish for the day.
The second-place fish was a 2 pound, 13 ounce northern caught by Jesse Roe.
Third place went to Ryan Byrnes and his 2 pound northern. Byrnes made the news just before the contest when he was grazed in the head with a stray bullet while fishing near Ely.
There was a tie for fourth place between Duane Robinson and Codie Finley with 1 pound, 11 ounce northerns.
Prizes were $100, $50, $30 and $20. Twenty fish were registered, way down from past years, reported Ed Maki Jr. from the VFW.
Entrants paid $2 for a raffle ticket, the first increase in 47 years. The money goes to a thankful VFW. It’s the biggest fund-raiser of the year for the post.
The William Kelley High School prom committee raised money as well by offering lunch on the ice.
