    Default burbot

    Ive been doing some research on the game and fish website on areas to catch burbot. The only lake I can find reference to is Big Lake. Does anyone know a lake within a 3 hour drive of Anchorage that may have burbot in it? Thanks for any advice.

    But both Skilak and Tustumena have lakers, and to my knowledge do not have burbot. I have never seen a burbot taken out of Hidden, but the regs say no burbot may be retained, so one could infer that they are there. There are some in the lakes on the Resurrection Pass trail- the only official burbot lakes on the peninsula.

    when the big su freezes up it is also an option
    I choose to fly fish, not because its easy, but because its hard.
