Ice fishing: Hobby, passion, tradition
April 6, 2021
RILEY LAKE, Wisc. — It was a sunny day at 25 degrees, right off the Forest County Potawatomi Reservation where ice fishermen are setting up to catch their first prey.
Ryon Alloway, Forest County Potawatomi, is no stranger to these waters. He’s been watching an eagle perched up in a tree that’s hanging over where they’re drilling their first hole of the day.
“They are waiting for a fish to come out,” Alloway said.
