Handfishing Through the Ice the Russian Way [VIDEO]

In Russia, man catches fish by hand, not by fishing pole.

What can be tougher than this guy reaching into a frozen lake to grab a fish?

This fish gets a piece of him too, but he ultimately gets that fish.

While arm deep in a drilled out ice fishing hole on a northern lake this man gets it done. He appears to use his fingers as bait while “noodling” for a big fish. He ultimately pulls out this giant aquatic beast.

This tough fisherman, though bleeding from his fish bite injuries, is our new ice fishing champion.
