So, some how this river needs a little recognition. pass on the word, my brothers.:wink::smile2:

    Burbot are also called eelpout. They're a freshwater cod. I think they're mostly a far-north fish, and they are usually caught through the ice. Big, ugly and tasty...

    I know this is an old post. But they are also called Ling. Long looking catfish. The larger one will wrap their tails around your arm when you are taking the hook out. Usually grow to about 6 pounds max. on the Yellowstone. Montana state record 17lb on the Missouri near wolfpoint. Fillet,boil, dip in drawn butter.
