NEW STATE RECORD!!!
« on: March 09, 2012, 12:49:41 PM »

Eelpout  ~roflmao




Bemidji Man Snags 19.5-pounder on Lake of the Woods

(WDAZ-TV) - A Bemidji man has bragging rights after a day of fishing on Lake of the Woods.
By: Meagan Millage, WDAZ

Aaron Guthrie caught a 19.54 pound Burbot, often referred to as an eelpout fish. Guthrie caught the fish in 34 feet of water near Long Point.


"It's a once-in-a-lifetime 'pout," Guthrie said.


The previous state record eelpout was 19 pounds, 3 ounces and was also caught on Lake of the Woods. The slimy fish has a tendency to wrap itself around an object like a snake would.


Guthrie has begun the certification process to be the new state record holder.

Researching the words associated with this fish it's very interesting :-*

Sounds like a blast to catch and apparently it's very good eating too.

Being from MN I'd say we could go head to head with the Lock Jaw boys as far as eating most anything  lo

There is a big Eelpout celebration back home in Ivanhoe every year....... Never did get into it as a kid but my family posts pics and story's on out family page every year.  ~gf

That's a big old fish,,,,, I cooked a 5lbs brisket for new years eve and just holding it over the sink it just hit me this would be a huge bass  lo

Fogy, they have a HUGE eelpout festival every year in Walker on Leech Lake. I've never been there but I've seen pics. It's just one giant party, Im not even sure half the people fish.

Many people remove the backstraps from the eelpout and boil them in 7-UP, dipped in butter it's supposed to taste like a poor-man's lobster.

Thats a big darn fish.  We used to catch (Not that big) them in Alaska in the Chena River there on Ft. Wainwright / Fairbanks.  They taste great deep fried with hush puppies and cole slaw too  ;)

I LOVE pickled herring on a club cracker! We usually only get it around the holidays though. Must be a Swedish/Norwegian thing. Infact my girlfriend's grandfather makes some wonderful pickled northern. I also like pickled eggs, have tried pickled turkey gizzards. But Im not brave enough for picked pigs feet.

Don't you guys have picked food down south?
