Bad Medicine Report - Eel Pout -- Help!!!

2 posts in this topic

Went out Saturday after the cold front hit. 55-degrees, east wind @ 15mph and raining. My wife caught a nice bass in 40Ft of water on a crawler and we let it go...big fun!! Then I caught an 19-inch Eeel-Pout (I think burbot?) in 40Ft of water on the botom using a night crawler. I didn't know what is was at first...had to look it up and decided it must have been and Eeel-Pout. Very wierd. Anybody else ever catch one of these on Bad Medcine?

Yep, a few years ago, I caught one on a crankbait pulled by a downrigger. I got kind of close to shallow water and he must have come a little ways to get it. I guessed it to be about 4lbs. I just grabbed the hooks with a needlenose and shook like H_E_double toothpicks until it fell off.
