    Default What A night!

    We made the run at around 3pm out to long lake in search of burbot and some lakers. Goin was a bit slow at first. only thing we had was a flag from the tip up until later in the night. went to check some lines we put out and had nothing. returned to the shack recharged our glow in the dark jigs and immediately appon dropping them back into the water had a fish on. it was a laker which was a top of the hole release. weather was insane high wind and negative temps. we managed to land one laker and send it back to grow. we did see another smaller size burbot hangign around the bottom of the hole. totals for the night: lakers-1 for 4, and burbot 2 for 3. all in all great fun. also had one of the burbots for some hard water dinner. boiled in water added butter and some seasoning. now thats tasty. here are some picks enjoys. AkMud thanks for the invite. these were also the first for these species thru the ice and first for laker ever.

    Just a thought..... remember that if you get laker fever, it is hard to shake.

    And the one you caught is just a wee lad. 10-15 pounders are fairly common. It takes a bit of time on the ice, but you don't seem to have any problems with the cold.
    My time is coming..... I just have to be patient.
