Re: Indian summer?
[QUOTE=Vance G;1329944I managed to catch a couple jumbo perch and a nice ling/burbot. Their ugly is only overcome by their fine taste.[/QUOTE]
I am surprised at how many people throw the Burbots they catch back or kill them and throw them away. It is definitely the best tasting fish around here but like you say it's just butt ugly. When we were kids and the South Saskatchewan river wasn't full of mercury we would hike the few miles to the river. We'd spend the day fishing and we ate many a shore lunch of fresh caught Burbot. There was always a pliers in our pack for skinning them, we'd slit behind the gills and pull the skin off like a sock. Once cleaned they were cut up and fried in butter over a camp fire, mixed with baked beans and devoured. Walleye/Sauger was good this way too but not as good as the Burbot.
