The North American Ice Fishing Circuit (NAIFC) is coming to Canada and is holding its inaugural Canadian event on Sunday, January 9th, 2011 at Balsam Harbor, Lake Winnipeg, Manitoba.

The NAIFC tournaments are team (two anglers) events and there are 5 qualifying events this winter leading up to the championship tournament to be held December 12, 2011 at Rhinelander, Wiscinsin.

The Lake Winnipeg event is a walleye tournament that will surely attract many of Canada's walleye tournament teams looking to try their hands at a winter event.

What makes this event even more exciting is that the organizers of the Lake Winnipeg tournament have provided the SWT with a paid team entry ($250.00 value) to be given by draw to an SWT member.
