Fishing Reports for Michigan's Upper Peninsula
Fishing For Burbot

These elongated, cylindrical, freshwater codfish inhabit most waters of Alaska, Canada and northern United States as well as corresponding latitudes of Eurasia.


This is one ugly fish

Despite the burbot's homely form, its meat is palatable and nutritious. A delicacy in Scandinavia, the burbot's liver contains oil said to rival that of the saltwater cod. Allow me to introduce you to some of Michigan's best fishing lakes, rivers and streams. Where do you want to go trout fishing?

Burbot \Bur"bot\, n.
A fresh-water fish of the genus Lota, having on the nose two very small barbels, and a larger one on the chin.
[Written also burbolt.]
[1913 Webster]

Note: The fish is also called an eelpout or ling, and is allied to the codfish. The Lota vulgaris is a common European species. An American species
({Lota maculosa) is found in New England, the Great Lakes, and farther north.
[1913 Webster]
