Default Burbot, Flaming Gorge and Ice

Who's done it? Worth the trip?

Tips, techniques?

Looking at taking a trip with a few of my fishin' buddies. We've been talking about burbot, for two reasons... 1) we're fish killers and 2) they're trying to erradicate them, I figure we can help out a bit.

Anyone have any info that's been there, done that?

Thanks ahead of time...

I haven't done it, but have friends who do. Location is the key. Fish shelves at night 20-50 feet deep, adjacent to deep water, with glow jigheads and glow tubes or curly tails tipped with a piece of sucker meat. You can use up to 6 rods/tip ups.

I have a friend up there who is a brand new licensed ice fishing guide and he specializes in burbot. I recommend you guys go together and hire him for a night. If you want his number, let me know.

Be careful. These burbot bashers got a surprise over the weekend. http://www.ksl.com/index.php?nid=148&sid=14129268

There's a big burbot ice contest going on right now. http://www.heraldextra.com/sports/re...2d0eb93bf.html

Now that's a different way to troll.

"and the angler must be within 300 yards of all six lines"

Yes, they are. And they have now spread throughout the lake, all the way down to the dam.
