You can now buy a DVD copy of a documentary about sturgeon spearing on the Lake Winnebago system.

A premiere was held in February in Fond du Lac for "The Frozen Chosen," which then aired on television in the Milwaukee area. The film follows two families, the Schumachers and Muches, over three spearing seasons.

"The Frozen Chosen" was directed by Steve Boettcher. Boettcher is an Appleton native and graduate of the University of Wisconsin-Oshkosh, who began his professional career as a photographer at WLUK-TV.

A portion of the proceeds from film sales will be donated to Sturgeon For Tomorrow, a local conservation group advocating for the preservation and enhancement of sturgeon resources.
