Burbot for the what?!?!

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone,

I caught a eelpout this last weekend that was something to see. Some of the best color I have ever seen on one, as well as a pretty good size one for Winnie, where I caught it. I am pondering getting a replica mount of the fish, and am looking for suggestions for a good place to look. They are goofy creatures, but amazing all in one. Definitely my favorite winter quarry.

Thanks for the help.

When I caught a 42 inch northern on Mille Lacs in December of 1994 there weren't too many options and I went with Artistic Anglers in Duluth. One of the questions was "where did you catch it?" as they explained that they could match the coloring of the location it was caught. Interesting as it was tagged so I engraved the number in my minnow bucket and sent it in to the DNR. I have the certificate framed under the mount and you post made me realize it was over 20 years ago. Time flies but a great way to remember.

Mike Thelen in Brainerd, can't remember the company name, is very good at it and has been featured in many TV spots and magazines. Any Brainerd area guys here know his company name?

how something can be so pretty and so ugly at the same time amazes me. It is cool looking for sure and I've caught quite a few of those buggers over the years. None even close to that pattern.

Hey JCup, that looks great. The only thing you loose with the contrast switch are the little black dots in between that bars. I like the difference though, thank you. That is definitely how bright it was.

Artistic Anglers x2. They have the most realistic mounts and have the best painter in the business in my opinion. They have a huge backlog and it takes a year to get your mount but it is definitely worth it. If you order it at the Minneapolis Sportshow they have show discounts.

    • Box? i don't think I've ever seen them but will be looking in a little while
    • Buy a box of cheesy tots.  Cook.   Use rack over sheet pan on grill or in oven.  😀
    • Cheesy tots sound great! Anyone got a recipe?
    • If you're feeling adventurous some time follow the same process you just explained but instead of using a rib rub try using a generous amount of Montreal Chicken seasoning with yellow mustard as your glue.  Also, try a wing or thigh before using the Famous Dave sauce.   Goof Luck
    • I took wings, thighs and legs and put rib rub on them and let them sit for 4 hours then I smoked them for about 90 minutes this morning. Tonight I put them on the grill to crisp up and slathered with Famous Dave's. I seem to kill chicken on the grill but with the smoker I can regulate better plus all that flavor. Only way I'll do chicken now!
    • The grain belt is a bigger sin.😁
    • Yes, I noticed the bottled water in the back👺
    • I did 2 racks of St. Louis style ribs on the pellet smoker yesterday, rubbed with smoky mesquite seasonings...  so good no bbq sauce was used when they were eaten!!!  did the 3-2-1 method but used different temps from the last time I did them...  started at 175 for 3 hrs, then 230 wrapped and finished unwrapped at 230...  Oh Yea!!!
