    Default Burbot photos

    I have seen some vague pictures of Burbout and illustrations, but I have not caught any yet. I would like to see any good images of burbot that anyone has caught.
    Hike faster. I hear banjo music.

    Default I hate to admit it..

    the first time I caught one when I was 18 I threw it back. I thought it was a freaky fish/snake!

    Default 06' Burbot

    I had no choice to wear them gloves in that picture. If the winter gloves would have been covered in slime, someone would not have been very happy with me.
    This was the first one I ever caught, I was surprised that they smelled just like halibut. They've got that ivory in their heads too, but that takes a bit of digging to find. Absolutely delicous! Poor Man's Lobster with burbot was just awesome

    In Minnesota they're called Eelpout. I met some guys from Michigan and they call burbot "lawyers".....bottom feeders I guess! LOL

    Default Cusk

    In Maine we called them Cusk caught some real nice ones. We would fish for them at night, with tip ups on the bottom with dead bait. Some nights we would have half a dozen in a few hours. A big one would go about 5-10 pounds, only problem was they used to wrap the lines around everything they could find, so you needed really strong line, and a big hole. Even then sometimes we would haul up a monster only to find it stuck on the other side of a piece of driftwood or stump.
