ICE FISHING


Ice fishing is also very popular on Baikal and around the lake. The best lure is sandhoppers (bormash), bloodworm or maggots as well as artificial lure. It is also worth trying to catch bass on Warm lakes or glayling in Baikal. Locals continue catching legendary Omul even in winter which is a very interesting performance about how you can install and take out fishnet underneath the ice. Some prefer to catch Omul in winter with a fishing rod, they drill a whole in thick clear ice, lie on top trying to spot the fish in a passing by school of fish - but it is not easy because Omul winters at 200-300 meters depth. This method of catching Omul is gradually receding.
