Dear Wyo_Ringo,

Since Burbot are listed as a non-game fish in Area 4, if caught they have to be killed immediately, but after killing them they could be used as cut-bait.

In looking at the 2017 Regs I see that trout beads can now be used above a bare hook, as well as a above an artificial fly (above meaning 2" or less from the eye of the hook), and further the Regs state that a trout bead used with a bare hook is considered an artificial lure in the same category as a jig, spoon, spinner etc. Within the definition for artificial lures the Regs state: "artificial flies and lures do not include living or dead organisms or edible parts thereof, natural or prepared organic food stuffs, or chemical attractants".  I'm thinking this is to further clarify the interpretation/definition of "artificial" when the lure itself is manufactured..., but I have a question below:

Q:  Provided one is not fishing in an artificial only area of water... Does this mean that a bare hook, with properly positioned trout bead can't be tipped with any type of bait like is common when jigging or trolling with a spoon or spinner?

Not sure the G&F guys will be checking in here since it's Spring and their probably busy elsewhere. You might check into MyFishFinder.com, the open water sister site to this one. If I recall correctly there was a couple of lengthy responses to the bead above a hook regs earlier in this thread, you might find it easiuer with the Search feature too. It gets kind of slow in here this time of year! Tight lines to you! ;D
