Default Flaming Gorge Burbot?

Soooo, I was planning to head out east, but it looks like the ice probably won't be good this weekend. I am now tinkering with ideas ranging from Wyoming to Nebraska, southern South Dakota, and even Oklahoma. One potential destination piqued my interest: Flaming Gorge. This trip out east was going to be a meat trip. It's a "necessary" evil; that's how I can afford to not eat as many fish from Colorado... Anyhow, Wyoming wants to get rid of burbot, so it would be a win-win. It won't even be a necessary evil, just a good deed on my part.

Anyone done it? Thoughts? Comments? Polemics? Would you do it again? What about access to the lake in winter conditions? Lodging? Anybody wants to ride? Etc... I did find some information online stating that burbot are more abundant in the upper part of the lake. Other than that, I have never been to the lake.

Define "like." For eating: those are toward the bottom of my list and largemouths are actually off the list. But I know you already know what I'm chasing out east. As far as fishing goes, only pike are of interest. If I knew how to catch bass, they would probably make the list too.

From what I heard, one of your brothers is married to one of my clan members. I even met him once or twice. Just didn't he was your brother at the time.
