Traditional Ice Fishing In China

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 practised for nearly a thousand years.

Fishermen cast thousand-meter long net through holes that they’ve drilled on a 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 Guinness World Record was created for the largest amount of fish capture with one net weighing 84,000 kilograms.
