Each winter in early January I ice fish with a group of really fun guys in Sawyer County.

Several of these guys are from the Birchwood area and for years Chris Schiefelbein, who is a Realtor with Century 21, has been trying to get me to come fish with the gang on their pontoon boat that they rigged up to troll for walleye as well comfortably fish panfish out of.
