  • Burbot fishing

    Fishing is tough when you have to put up with scenery like this.



    The Burbot were big and plentiful.

    I hear burbot is the poor mans lobster. I caught one on Montana Creek one time, it was nasty and it stunk some horrible. If it tastes anything like Ling Cod it cant be that bad.

      Burbot

      The burbot I've eaten from the Tanana and Yukon were as good as Halibut and nearly as good as a Minnesota Walleye.

                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.

                    methods

                    I moved up here in December of last year. I really want to do some burbot fishing this winter. I am from Arkansas and have never fished for them, someone told me I can catch them just like I catch catfish back home. How true is that. I would appreciate it if anyone can offer advice on tactics,gear, tips, and patterns of the fish. I am not asking for a place to catch them. People should earn their own fish!! Thanks for any info.

                        That is right. but for stink bait I use old roe instead of chicken livers.
                        It ain't about the # of pounds of meat we bring back, nor about how much we spent to go do it. Its about seeing what no one else sees.

                          I fish board traps overnight. I can't remember off the top of my head how many you can fish? You have to check them next day.

                          I use 2x4s cut about 12 inches long. I tie a small line to that. I put a leader on that line with a big hook. I put old smelt or troll herring on the hook. I come back in the morning and beat the ice off the 2x4 and open the hole back up. Pull it in and see if you have a burbot.

                          I hear on Big lake you can jig them as you can't baitfish. Also your name and address must be written on the traps.

                            you have to check the regs because set lines are not leagal every where.
