Interesting.

Where I came from, people put a hut with a hole in the floor on the ice, and don't use rods. Enterprising Chinese should make some huts and rent them out to weekend fishermen. You can even put a heater in those huts.

By the way, where can you go ice fishing without enjoying the bitter cold weather ? Sign me up when you find a place like that.
