Lake Abashiri, which boasts the highest catch of the wakasagi in Hokkaido, is also famous for the fish farmed and released in lakes throughout Japan. For ice fishing, bore a hole in the ice, drop a line into the lake, and catch the fish. If you happen to be waiting at the right moment on the right spot, you can get one after another and can forget the severe cold of winter. Equipment for ice fishing such as rods and lines is available for rent.
