We're still a little early for what would be considered “prime time,” but burbot (aka eelpout) are already showing up and biting around central MN. The fight is incredible, they’re so ugly they’re pretty (I can relate), and the bite will only get better from here on out! It’s time to get out ice fishing for some burbot!

Drop a comment below and let me know what you think. 👊 Thx SO much for watching!

That I had 1) doused in more glow paint, 2) added a brass rattle chamber to the back, and 3) upgraded to a big #3 VMC Hybrid Treble for loading up with bait. 👊 Always tweaking to try and make a better mousetrap as Jeremy Smith would say.
