Icefishing for Amur sleeper (Percottus glehni)

Icefishing is one of extreme sports.  If the winter is not snowy, in November near Khabarovsk  there are many fires.
Amur sleeper is a tiny predator which survives in shallow winterkill lakes.  The biggest specimens can be over a pound.
 If you can not get to better water, it is possible to fish for sleepers at the ice of almost any shallow lake. 
 Sleeper is small but tasty fish
