BW....yes we kept the burbot.....and we drove out....ice just a cracking...music to my ears.......Terry....ha rd to measure those devils when they keep curling up around your arm...best I could do was around 28 inches or so....nice piece of lobster off it though.....not too sure if this lake will produce the magical 30" though....possibly Lake Manitoba but definetely Lake Winnipeg for sure...Grump

I think i'd kill that for the good of the fishery.  Was that an eel pout?

 :clap:  Way to go MM...you keep GM in his place  ;)

Looks like the shack is seeing good use already.  Keep on going.  I'm taking Monday off to get my fix.  Weather looks like it will be a bit nicer, but that could put the fish off too.  I guess we'll see.

God grant me the Serenity to accept the size of the fish I catch,
the Courage not to fib about it,
and the Wisdom to know that no one would believe me anyway.

Your making my mouth water Moe. Keep em coming. If I can't find ice at least I can still see some nice ice pics.

I agree with you. The burbot is the vorace predator on any king of fish
Dont give up grumpymoe, great pics, ;)
It's important to be patient in life. ice fishing is the better place to find it and learning the real thing...;)
