It is knownreal estate for sale in waukesha county,homes for sale in lake country real estate,home sale in waukesha county wisconsin,relocating or moving to oconomowoc wisconsin as ice fishing and some take it pretty seriously around these parts. One being known as my son Spencer Braatz, the Ice Fishing Master and Ice fishing Aficionado. He treats it as an art form, and to him it is pure art. I can still remember the day a few winters ago when my son comes up to me and asks if he can use my credit card. As I ask him for what he mentions he is just going to go buy an ice fishing shanty. I said to my self "How much can a Frabill ice shanty cost?" Well, times have changed and I realized this when he came back with one that had multiple independent swivel seats, and extra room, windows and more. I just about fainted. I know he enjoys it and I went with it.

"I sure am Dad, I have lots of good things to eat, snacks for Glenn, and plenty ofreal estate for sale in waukesha county,homes for sale in lake country real estate,home sale in waukesha county wisconsin,relocating or moving to oconomowoc wisconsin food. Oh, by the way Dad stop at the gas station so I can get some shiners for Northern. I'll even buy you a cup of coffee." I knew at that moment I had raised a negotiator and I was already going down the road in single digit temperatures. The sun would come up soon and the day would be 8 hours long ( sometimes 10 or more ) for Spencer. He always catches fish and he reminds me that he is doing something safe and healthy for a 6'8" 300 pound 18 yr old. Back to that raising a negotiator thing. Anyone that has met my son will tell you that he is a good kid, a big hearted kid, but a really good kid. I certainly would have to concur. Want to know about ice fishing or learn how to in the Waukesha County Real estate and Lake Country real estate markets? Do I have the teacher for you!

Ice fishing is definitely an acquired taste. Great post for buyers to know what is happening in the area. I would be more inclined to find an alternative with blue skies and warmer weather.... alas I live in upstate NY.. what went wrong??

What a wonderful story about an inspiring young man.  I have to agree with Spencer at least he is doing something productive.  What a great teacher he would be for someone that's new to the area or who wants to know more about Ice Fishing.

Myself, I had never even heard of such a thing til I read this article.  Thanks for sharing Tom.
