More Than a Fishing Story: Writer Works From an Ice Shack for Two Weeks

Over the next two weeks, GVO Editor Luke Laggis will post daily logs of his days on the ice, along with photos, videos and stories about working and fishing from his ice shack on Boom Lake in Rhinelander, Wisconsin. "Think of it as a two-week guided tour of a place that means a hell of a lot to me," Laggis says. "When it’s done, I hope you’ll understand why. Maybe come up and visit. It’s gorgeous this time of year."
