      Negaunee celebrates Heikki Lunta

      Negaunee was bustling with activity Saturday for the 18th Annual Heikki Lunta celebration.

      The day started out with about 200 fisherman on Teal Lake for the fishing derby; that's several dozen more people than last year.

      More than $1,000 in prizes were awarded to those who caught the biggest fish.

      This year's biggest catch was a 37 inch, 15 1/2 pound pike.

      "It makes me feel really good that this many people showed up for the Fishing Derby today, and the weather is good and a lot of fish are being caught," said Irontown Association V.P. Ann Yoho.

      Heikki Lunta also featured dinner and dancing at the senior center, bonfires on Teal Lake, and a fireworks display to end the night.

      The lake was lined with families who wouldn't let the cold and snow keep them from celebrating.
