Gone ice fishing!

VANCOUVER – There is at least one Canadian pastime sport you won't see at the Winter Olympics: ice-fishing.

NBC News' Carlos Rigau and Raul Jaramillo drove 200 miles north of Vancouver to the frozen Lake Nicola, near Merritt, Canada, to learn more about what inspires people to sit in the freezing cold for hours on end.

They met with two ice fishermen who seemed to be the only people on the 13 mile long lake and to learned more about the secrets of the sport.

Guess what they use for bait? You'll have to watch the video to find out.
