    Is the burbot fishery a night time deal. Can they be caught during the day? I'm in bed by 9:30, so I can only dream about catching them.

    They are primarily night feeders.

    I've only caught burbot through the ice but its always been after dark with something glow. Not just a bottom deal either. I've had them come way up aggressively. Pretty cool looking on the flasher when they come charging up and hit like a truck.

    As a teen, up on Lake Superior, we would catch them all afternoon and evening.

    My son and his friends were out there last night. Not sure what the final tally was. Must of been a late night. He was already in bed when I got home from hunting.

    Not really a bad way to cook them. Any way you would cook walleye you can do it with burbot also.
