Burbot in NY

(1/7) > >>

There are Burbot in Lake Ontario.  My place of employment has a water intake in 60 feet of water in Lake Ontario.  Every winter burbot show up in the intake filters.  Last year I found a 36" burbot that was dead in the filters.  I would love to find out how to catch them out of Lake Ontario.

They are alsofound in Champlain, they live on the bottom so I would say fishing baits close to the bottom would work maybe even dead bait laying right on the bottom. Somewhere on here I read that guys  catch them while lake trout fishing on champlain

good luck if and when you go

Gambell, here in NH, cusk is a major gamefish in the winter. many people use white or glowhead bucktails with a peice of cut sucker to sweeten the jig up. what ive had great luck with this year is a size 3 glow in the dark swedish pimple. also tipped with a little peice of sucker. hope this helps!


ps, at night is the best time for them!
