    I have caught them on just about anything but they seem to prefer local fish parts. I have good luck on grayling heads and insides as well as whitefish parts. Frozen hearing worked but was way slow then again it could have been the waters I was fishing?

    Before taking any of my advice for granted on here research the legal ramifications thoroughly I am not the Troopers nor am I the Judge that will be presiding over your case/hearing. Please read the hunting and sportfishing regulations and feel free to interpret their meaning on your own.

    Talking Bait and stuff

    Best two baits 1. Whitefish 2. Eels. If in Fairbanks, get the whitefish at Santas smokehouse and dig eels in Chena Rv bank sand/muck behind Carlson ctr. Thats always worked for me for burbot in the 8-12 pound range. Frozen herring works, but is less effective. I use about a 2 ounce sinker on terminal end with 3-way swivle, and hook about 16 inches up from that.....fish it like cat fishn...keep line tight, and I often use a bell clipped on rod tip so I can relax. Sit back, open beer and enjoy the setting sun. Only thing left is finding a nice rocky hole along an unnamed river.
