Traditional Ice Fishing In China

About two hundred fishermen gathered on Chagan Lake, Jilin province in China to capture fish in a traditional way that has been practiced for nearly a thousand years.

Fishermen cast thousand-meterlong net through holes that they’ve drilled on frozen lake. They later use horses to winch the net and harvest the fish. This old fishing technique attracts tourists to visit Chagan Lake where a Guiness World Record was created for the largest amount of fish capture with one net weighing 84,000 kilograms.
