BURBOT (EEL POUT, LAWYER)
More commonly referred to as an Eel Pout or a Lawyer have a continuous season with no limit.
The majority of the Burbout caught are during the winter months. An average fish runs in the 3-6 pound range with many up to 10 pounds. The state record was caught on Lake of the Woods and weighed in at 19.16 pounds! They are a rough fish and there is not a limit on how many you can keep. However, it is illegal to leave them laying on the ice. They may not be the prettiest fish, but eating their “backstraps” has become extremely popular. We can clean them up and cook them for you back at the lodge.
