What's Sancheoneo Ice fishing?

Every winter, 1st grade clean river in Hwacheon is frozen up (Thicker than 30cm), so people make holes on the ice and catch 1st grade fish Sancheoneo.
You can use trolls or small reel rods. To prevent water pollution, alive baits are not allowed to use. Choose suitable baits like warm and metal for today's weather.
You can enjoy sashimi, grilled fish, and steamed fish with Sancheoneo you catch.
