Ive heard there are burbot in Swan Lake, has anyone caught one this year?
mzmann

heard rumour of them in there as well but never seen/caught any there myself either.

as for being one of the best "fights" ever...are you sure you are talking about burbot Gearbox?, lol.....in my experience they come up like a wet size 12 baffin boot with the odd attempt at getting back to bottom, lol.
cagey

heard of them as well. The fish over Gearbox's way sure must be dead . All I have ever caught is boots that try to sink (as mzmann says !)

In saskatchewan they can live in lakes 100' deep. I think swan is around 100' in the middle? Haven't caught one in BC but growing up they were easy to catch Jan-Mar ice fishing. They came in pretty shallow 10-30 ft and were even active during daylight.

Nicola and Mamit have a good population of Burbot.
