GROVE CITY, OH - Columbus, Ohio resident Scott Albrecht, an avid ice fisherman from near Columbus, OH, has been selected to join the 2016 USA Ice Team. Albrecht will represent Team USA, as a spotter, when the 2016 team travels to either Poland or Latvia to compete in the World Ice Fishing Championships.

Albrecht is the first USA Ice Team member to represent the state of Ohio. "I want to be an ambassador for ice fishing in this region. I travel across the country each winter to share my love for the sport of ice fishing, but people don't realize that there's a lot of ice in Ohio, and some great fishing," said Albrecht.

The WIFC is a semi-Olympic event that 13-14 countries send a team to each year. USA has been consistently sending teams since 2009 and won Gold in 2010 in Rhinelander, WI. The 2015 team plans to travel to Finland at the end of March to fish in the WIFC event this year.
