Time for that time of year...BURBOT!

after visiting pout fest over the past weekend, the idea of slamming into the slimy buggers has been starting to itch my fever. Anyone starting to get a consistent bite out there yet? I plan on heading out hopefully everynight this week. When I head out there, I usually dont get out until 7 or later on lake bemidji. I want to try new lake structures this year, as the same popular spot seems like it gets more pressure every year. AFter looking at my gps, there are alot of humps on lake bemidji with the same type of structure and could have less pressure and more lobster. I'll give a report and hopefully some pictures when I start heading out...

Fish late evening and into the night, use glow in the dark lures (keep them charged up) that have horz. movement. airplane jig or walleye flyers work well. Bounce them off bottom then jig them about a foot up.. Use pretty good size lures and larger minnows like rainbows or shiners.

Some nice ling there Nate! They sure are fun when you can get into numbers....

Contrary to what BemidjiFisher uses, I like vertical baits. Big flashy spoons work very well. Phelp's Glow Spoons and Custom Jigs Slender Spoons in the bigger sizes work great. I've never had much luck with horizontal presentations...

I agree, glow baits work well. Keeping them charged is often times a pain, so you can add a glow stick for added glow and less reeling in to charge baits...

I tip my spoons with half a shiner with some guts hanging on one hook, and a full live minnow on another hook. I bang the bottom until I see a nice mark charging in, sometimes above my bait. A nice wiggle and BAM!

I've had good luck using 2-3 fatheads with a northalnd buckshot bouncing off the bottom, then you see that large red mark, bam!
I went out last thursday, 730-9 and nothing. last friday, my roomie went out, 21FOW 915-10:30, 3 pout. He went out again Sat Night,830-11 and caught 1. I still have to get more, like tonight!
where does everyone have their best luck depth wise this time of year and at what times?
I usually get them 19-17Ft after 8pm...

We caught ours in 19', we caught 3 between 7:30 and 8, and caught 2 pout in 2 minutes right around 9 PM. We had a glow fireball jig with a rattle and two live fatheads on the hot line. I caught the other on a blue Phelps Glow Spoon with a live fathead on one hook and half a fathead on another.

Never eatin pout....oh my are you in for a treat.
Given they are slimey suckers to clean ,but boy do they taste great.
I boil the back straps and tail meat for 5 minutes ,then I'll lay the meat on my broiler tray.Season with salt,pepper and garlic for another 5 minutes.
I'll melt up some butter for dunking and let me tell you.
Man.....what a meal!
