Vermont Master Anglers- Catching Burbot with Tipups

During this episode we team up with Jud Kratzer from the Vermont Fish and Wildlife Department in order to learn how to catch Burbot at night using Tip Ups. This episode was filmed in 2019 and since we've made this an annual tradition. Burbot are a unique species in VT that are not targeted by many anglers. They go by many names including; Eelpout, Ling Cod, Moriah, Lawyer fish, Cusk, Lota Lota, and more. Join us as we teach how to target this species and stay tuned for a cooking episode coming soon!... Did I mention that Burbot is a freshwater relative of the Cod? Also check out for more information on the bait bags we used to finally catch a Master Angler Burbot!
