Thank you everyone for the tips you posted and messaged me. Had a good night out last night in 57 feet of water in front of the Sunset Bay Motel. Good luck to everyone else out there!

CFish purchased a couple of years ago - this is a Cuddeback product sold out of Green Bay that's no longer available.  It uses a CRT type screen rather than LED which makes it less sensitive to cold temps.

Lightly used.   Battery charger included.   Everything works but there is an issue with the controller pad that could likely be resolved by someone handy with electronics.    The controller allows you to rotate the camera 360 degrees; currently this one continuously rotates and can't be stopped.   So it gives you constant scanning around your fishing area but can't be pointed in one direction until the controller pad problem is fixed.

Paid $200 new - looking to get $50.   Marquette / Gwinn area but travel through Escanaba / Menominee area and to the Copper Country fairly regular.

The one thing you can achieve with a fish that, as a species, has a high PCB level is to skin it and remove most of the body fat...standard cleaning with a burbot. Mercury distributes in both lean muscle mass and fatty tissues, PCB only in fatty tissue.  They eat well in chowders, or fish boils. When I first moved over here from the eastern U.P. you could drive up to a sportsman's club up toward Houghton and pick burbot up from a couple of dipping operations they carried-out on the Sturgeon...miss those days.

Burbot will eat juvenile lake trout, another reason I like them!

My dad called them freshwater cod and made fish chowder that was the best I ever ate. That fish helped get a family of 9 through some thin times. His poor mans lobster was fantastic w/venison t/loin for a surf an turf. Didn't know about the PCB's always thought they were pretty clean. Yeah the mighty lawyer reminded me how much I miss the old mans culinary skill.

A dead smelt set on bottom with a tip-up is also a nice pairing to the above.

Burbot have a single barbell off the bottom of their jaws, but basically feed like catfish and bullheads.  The spawn a water temperature ebb values, usually via forming a big aggregated "ball" in flowing water like a river or current swept bottom.

A thirty pound burbot would not be my choice to eat, but smaller fish are not as high in contaminants and are certainly not higher than a siscowet of equivalent size.

Lake Superior posts burbot as limited consumption, Lake Michigan has them listed at one meal a month. Basically, this tells me that not many burbot were analyzed from Lake Superior, given the background pollution levels in the two systems.  I will contact a friend who works on the Fish Cosumption Advisory guidelines and ask him how many and what size range of burbot were tested from Lake Superior waters.  The chemical of concern listed is Poly Chlorinated Bi-Phenyls (PCBs).  Lake trout are list at two cut points; greater than 24" and less than 24" total length with recommended consumption of less six times per year for fish <24" long

Some good info on eelpout-

> Jigging spoons that are 1/2 up to 1 1/8-oz (depending on how deep) pound the lake bottom to stir things up and call those nosy burbots in from a distance. The brighter it glows, the better. Reel up and recharge about every 10-15 minutes.

> Tip 'em with a pair of torn-in-half shiners/fatheads...don't be stingy on the minnows: Pile 'em on and replace 'em often to make sure you're getting as much scent into the water as possible. I'll even soak 'em in a bag with shad or crayfish scent.

> Swap out the braided line for 8-lb Sufix Ice Magic Mono. Doesn't absorb moisture/freeze up like braided line. Not a big deal when fishing out of a heated shack, but I rarely "set up camp" chasing burbs...prefer to hole-hop or fish out the truck door...moving spots every 15-20 minutes if there's no action.

How much per rod and reel? And what kind of spoons and what are you asking for them?
