North St. Paul firefighters nibble ice fishing contest comeback

Betty Enright remembers when North St. Paul anglers dragged couches onto a frozen Silver Lake a decade or so ago, as a cozy way to compete in the North St. Paul Lions Club’s popular ice fishing contest.
Her late husband, Ray, the keeper of many pails and a past club president, used to help organize the annual event that, due to dwindling membership and thin-ice cancellations, the club hasn’t hosted for the past few years.
“I just remember it took a lot of manpower,” said Enright, who’s been living in North St. Paul since 1944.
