Poor man's Lobster...One Word - Disgusting!
February 19, 2022
All hail the once lowly burbot, which is now considered a game fish species in Minnesota. Disgusting, I say!
By last year, the burbot had risen from rough fish status in Minnesota, as indicated on Page 12 of the 2021 Minnesota Fishing Regulations book. When the new regulations come out sometime in the next few weeks, the burbot will be listed as a game fish.
It's long considered the "ish of fish", given its beady-eyes, slithery appearance and a tendency to curl its tail around your arm when held out of the water. Supposedly, the burbot has become cool recently. It never will in my opinion!...
