    yup, no fish in big lake. I caught the only 2 fish out of there and that was 5 years ago and 3 years ago, one was on bait before I knew that it was ilegal. HAHA Ok I am kidding, but I would hit a different lake, although, when we bought both those fish they were caught around 20 feet right off the bottom

    Burbot are bottom feeders, so that should get the fishing depth about perfect. They also happen to be night feeders.

    Trout can be anywhere in the water column and that can change hour to hour and day to day. A lot of guys use sonar to figure out what depth they're at. In the absence of electronic fish finding, a lot of folks just start fishing right off the bottom and if that doesn't pan out, slowly work your way up.
