I will be fishing up here the week after game fish closes and am looking to target burbot.   Im thinking of fishing around a 30' depth with tip ups close to bottom and maybe jigging a glow rattle spoon.   

I would appreciate any info from anyone on any tips to catch these fish.   

Please pm and I will reply with how I did to you.

Hi, I was wondering what technique people use on this lake in order to catch burbot and if they are very common to catch.... If you could give me a general idea on where to go that would be great as well.

Thanks!

"I have friend who has a cabin on Black Oak lake and will be heading up there early January to do some ice fishing."

Last year it was wide open in the middle come the first week of January. You might wanna bring water wings.

Tough lake to fish.  If you are looking for action I'd suggest taking the 10 minute drive to LVD, fish daytime for Northerns, easy for numbers and action.

Save Black Oak for the magic evening hours, still not easy but improves your odds.

I have friend who has a cabin on Black Oak lake and will be heading up there early January to do some ice fishing. He doesn't get up there often. I'm looking to fish pike and whatever else will eat a shiner. And also to jig some walleye at dusk and into the evening. Any suggestions?

When's the best time of year to catch them through the ice?

Forget the walleye, this is a great Burbot Lake

Caught 2 burbot through the ice over the past 3 days, while fishing for Walleye, they measured 25" and 30". I have fished this lake many times during this time of the year and have never caught this species before. Coincidence or are they growing in numbers in Black Oak?
