WAUSAU, Wis. (AP) - The Russian team took gold in the World Ice Fishing Championships in central Wisconsin.
Eleven teams from around the world competed Saturday and Sunday on Big Eau Pleine Reservoir near Wausau.
The U.S. team took fourth, after winning the gold medal in 2010 at Boom Lake near Rhinelander. It finished 11th last year in Kazakhstan.
The top U.S. finisher was Chad Schaub of Michigan. Schaub won his section and weighed the most fish (0.676 kilograms) on Sunday to place third overall.
Finland took second and Lithuania took third.
Myron Gilbert, of Brooklyn, Mich., has been on Team USA for four years, and took the gold during the 2009 championships in Rhinelander.
He says his team struggled Saturday to find its footing, and couldn't pull through Sunday to take the win.
