On most lakes, Roy says burbot anglers use catfish bait, such as chicken liver, dead minnows or sliced-up herring, on heavy spoons (or glow-in-the-dark spoons at night).
- What is the world record burbot? This time, the dynamic fishing duo of identical twins Adam and Sean Konrad, teamed up for this IGFA all-tackle world record 25.2-pound burbot, that Sean hooked in Sascatchewan's Lake Diefenbaker on March 27. The jumbo “ling,” as they often called, ate a whole herring soaked on a medium spinning outfit.
- What's the best bluegill bait? Live bait works especially well for bluegill. The most common baits are worms and night crawlers because they are readily available and bluegill love them. The key is to use only a piece of a worm—just enough to cover the hook. Other productive baits include crickets, grasshoppers, red wrigglers and meal worms.
- Are eelpout and burbot the same? With its slimy skin and tendency to wrap itself around your arm, the burbot is considered by many anglers to be the "ish" of fish. But this cousin to the saltwater cod, commonly known as eelpout, is a remarkable predator. The burbot looks like a cross between an eel and a catfish.
- Can you eat burbot liver? Which leaves me with some ambiguity about catching them. But their flesh is a thick and delicious white fish and their livers are especially nutritious. A burbot liver is six times the size of most other fish, and provides the Vitamin D that Suzanne and family need.
- Do you soak catfish in milk? Simply soak the catfish in milk for an hour before frying to eliminate any leftover fishy taste. The cornmeal crust creates a perfect light and crispy texture. Jack says the catfish are done when "most of the bubbling stops and the fillets begin to float."
- Why do you soak chicken in vinegar? Soak chicken in equal parts white vinegar and water for about 30 minutes. This is Edna Eaton's surprise preparation. The vinegar removes all the gooey, fatty residue from chicken skin so that chicken parts hold coating better. Rinse off vinegar water and pat chicken pieces dry.
