ULAANBAATAR, MONGOLIA | MARCH 4 – 11, 2024
ICE FISHING CHAMPIONSHIP
“We Fish for Gold” is a slogan we are proud of as USAngling teams travel all over the world for the coveted “Gold Medal” of fishing. The USA Ice Fishing Team will be travelling to Mongolia for the WIFC (World Ice Fishing Championship) in 2024.
Captain Myron Gilbert is no stranger to traveling and competing for the Ice Team. Myron was a competitor on USA Ice Fishing Team when they won the Gold at the 2010 WIFC. Myron commented, “We are excited to be travelling to a country outside of Europe as we feel it will be a level playing field and our chances of medals increases.”
Most of the events held in Europe make it easy for the teams to travel and pre-fish the areas for weeks at a time prior to the event. In this case, Mongolia is way too far for any of the teams to get in any pre-fishing time.
