Young girl ice fishing with her father.

Fishing is practised in all seasons. Winter is the season for ice fishing. The fisherman bores a hole in the ice and lowers a baited hook through it. The line is held in place by a tip-up, which moves when a fish bites the hook. The main species targeted are Northern Pike and Walleye.
