On Saturday, Feb. 1, folks from the Finland area motored to Lax Lake to take advantage of the brief global warming period (14 degrees) and participate in “The Get-Together” fishing contest. There, 41 contestants were out- fished by Jordon Klemmer who caught an 8lb. 8oz. northern pike. Second place went to Don Saaristo with a 5lb. 3oz. northern and third place was won by Anna Klemmer with a 4lb. 8oz northern pike — living proof that it pays to take a kid fishing.
