It was fun to be there and meet a few BFT'rs. It turned into a really nice windless, bright moon night on FG. The catching was a dissapointment compared to reports from past weeks, but compared to a lot of the other reports I'm reading, maybe we diddn't do too bad.
We had a group of 5, me from slc & my dad and 3 of his buddies from Evanston. Started fishing around 4:30 and fished till around 1:30 am. We caught a total of 7. We met a really cool guy named Jimmy. He was having better sucess than us. He was fishing alone, no lights or anything, and about 250 yards from any other fishermen. He caught a total of 5, which he gave to us. This may add to the theory of too much activity on the ice scared em'.

So the Dannynoonan party oversaw the killing of 12 burbot which we floured and fried during football on Sunday, and they were really good. We will head back and do it again sometime for sure.

Thanks to my fishn' crew- Dad, Dave, Mark & Bart, to a cool stranger, Jimmy, for the extra fish and some good conversation, and to BFT for putting the Bash together...

We pulled up stakes about 1am. I think they just wanted to shut me down as I just started to catch fish and landed a 25 incher.Tongue

The people closest to us left about the same time and they had caught 1.

Good idea, I was trying to get a running tally on other post too. There was 13 of us and we iced about 30 burbot and a few macks on Friday night by 9:30pm.

Over by the main group along the cliffs I only caught 2 in two hours, and missed exactly 3 hits. I moved over by the confluence point and missed all my few hits there, less than five. Than over closer to where I had parked my car on the other side I picked up more throughout the night. Total was 7. Mighty strange.

Looks just like what Ryno, Craig, and Drew Cushing have been saying about the ling. I tell you what, I remember last year we was catching alot more crayfish along with the burbot. Looks like they are moving around the lake looking for the food. I think they just weren't in our area in big numbers that day. I am heading up next weekend or next week for a little longer and I want to fish that cliff wall close to the Balcks Fork or some other spots.

Which spot were you all fishing? There was a couple guys on an ATV that came up and said there were getting 50 ling in no time farther down closer to the Blacks Fork. Were you in that group?

Together, "The Champ" and I caught 6 burbot Saturday night between 6 pm and midnight. She caught 6, so that tells you (1) how many I caught and (2) why she's called "The Champ." The worst part was that she used only one pole, and I had six. Every time I went out of the tent to check my set lines, which never caught anything, I came back and she had another one. Apparently, she had the right technique, and I didn't. Neither did my set lines. I had two tip ups and three poles with glow curly tail jigs and sucker meat at various depths. All night long, they produced nothing, which brings up my question. Did anyone catch anything on an unattended pole? I don't mean legally unattended (they were all within a few feet of our tent), but I mean not constantly being watched. To us it seemed that you had to be right there to react whenever a burbot started gently pulling on your line. That was "The Champ's" secret, and it worked for her.

we went down past confluence point on the east side off the rocky point and cliff line we punched a ton of hole and every one moved around and bs and hit a hole for 10-15min then kept moving that is the only reason we caught any has any one noticed how small the ling were no were near what we have been catch in down by anvil and holmes my son got a 6'' ling sat night just my 2cents we do better down lake from lost dog it has been hammered every night and i think ryno is on to something it will allso pick up after these guys spawn just like last yr . no we didnt do an atv but some kids from gr were runin around on one thay thought thay were perty cool till thay saw a pile of ling .

I'm liking the thread LH2. After reading all the numbers i'm thinking location was the key. Fishley moved a lot, I like that method. Me and you found a good burbot pathway, really great when you find one. Like people are saying dont let one skunk trip stop you, just keep trying to figure it out.

As you already know how many we caught, we took ours into Rock Springs and stayed with some family. Woke up the next mourning and Grandma cooked us Porterhouse Steaks, burbot, and egs for breakfast. She boiled the burbot in a light sugar water and then we dipped the filets in hot butter and lemon. Some say it is as good as Lobster, I thought it was better ! The meal was worth the time put in and I am definatley going back for more.

Smile I did'nt make it down to register because I was up the lake a ways from the bash but could see everyone on the point for the clinic. With the rageing wind and not wanting to leave all my stuff unattended that far away I just stayed put and fished. I did meet a couple of other Bfters but can't remember their names I'm terrible with names.

we had a great time laughing and talking about past fishing trips. We ended up with 1 mack and 5 burbot and lost a few others. We had other bites but with all the laughing and B.S.ing buy the time we saw the flags sticking up we had missed them. The fishing had been great 4 me up until the full moon. That could have been part of the problem. the 4 wheelers that were spinning cookies on the ice all day and even after dark really did'nt help things either they kept their distance but did'nt stop for very long, just for more beer or gas.Mad

Well it was'nt fast and furious fishing but each of us caught some burbot. These were their first burbot and they were able to take 5 home for a taste. We had a great time fishing and laughing. For me I love to catch fish but It sure is nice when you meet new people and have a good time just being out on the ice relaxing and being able to forget about all the day to day problems everyone faces these days. They said they learned a lot a the burbot bash clinic and fishing together and would be back soon.

We all need to remember that lifes to short to be upset everytime we get skunked fishing, instead just be happy that we are all able to go fishing and do other things we enjoy whenever we want to hear in the USA. We should all give those a big thank you, help out where you can, support our troops and say a prayer for all those that have lost their lives fighting for us to have the freedom we have. Don't give up get out there and catch some burbot they are still out there and are in need of a hot butter and lemon bath. Smile
thank you to all that help and donated to the 2009 burbot bash
good luck and have a happy ice fishing seasonFishin'
