no ling but lotta moss and pesky trout
« on: November 02, 2019, 07:06:23 PM »

Went looking for ling( burbot) last night.
Most active in the winter and mostly at night. Prefer NO moon.
Last night it was very small and mostly hidden be hind the mountains.
10 mph wind and 37* not the best night but you take what you get.
The GD LOVES to fish ling. I saved some suckers from this summer, very best bait for burbot.
I think they sleep in the deep holes in the daylight then come out to hunt.
We get them at the very edge of the holes down stream.
BUT you gota be on the bottom, we pit on a 3/4 to 1 oz sinker and tie the hook with 6" of leader to it, right on the bottom.
There is still a LOT of moss on the bottom and floating down.
Between the pesky trout and the moss you only get like 2 minutes before your out of the strike zone.
DANG trout pick it up right away some times on the fall.
This time of year the BIG trout feed on the bottom too.
We got a couple of dozen trout most 3 pounds plus, slimmers!!!!
We kept 3.
No ling but the little GD and I had a good time.


I forgot to mention we had a BUNCH of small bats flying around us , the lantern attracts what ever flying bugs are out, they would hit our lines.

Glad you got out, D. Looks like a good time.
 I didn't get out this year. We spent the whole summer with the launch ramps under water and most of the roads leading to them closed due to flooding. Doesn't look like that's going to change anytime soon.

You and your GD must have had quite a time, D! "Pesky trout"! Wow, what we wouldn't give to have your problem with trout, LOL!

Your burbot must  be great eating!

When is your next outing and has a lot of your snow melted?

This old Indian looks forward to seeing you fellas here! I check every day to see if you fellas are here.

Burbot taste, looks,  and eat more like lobster then fish.
We are out doing something, going someplace at least once a week.
Looking at a second snowmobile.

  O0 Those burbots are for sure, worth chasing, D! Any luck getting another snowmobile?

No fishing here, I been working and killing squirrels. I would be chasing those burbots, too.

Any chance your son making it back home?

YUP he is back and finished working for the year.
Yes, I think we are getting a twin of our current machine.
Quite inexpensive.
