    Congratulations Jedi,

    Nice fish, both of them. Have never caught a burbot this early. Did you get it while jigging for trout, or on bait?

    Have a wonderful Christmas?

    Photo says...bent elbow 10 pounds, straight armed 20 lbs...lol

    The hand scale at catch site was 11 lbs. Going to visit ADF&G Fairbanks with it for a certified weight tommorow, just hoping it breaks 8 lbs for a trophy cert. Anyone want to guess before I take it in? I say 10 lbs...

    I know its not a record breaker, but it is my PB with rod n reel. I am stoked, by far the largest burbot I have ever caught to date, then when I think about how, when and where I caught it I am simply mind boggled. Strange things happen. I will post the weight from ADF&G as soon as I get it.

    You know your not catching any fish when you start talking about the weather...

    That's awesome! What a fish! I love the shot of you waiting at the door with a big frozen fish under you arm.
