I know the Sheboygan Fishing Guy has a nice video on Burbot  from a couple years ago.  Google “Sheboygan Fishing Guy” and scroll down to his December video from either 2017 or 2016.  Good action and nice “How To” instruction.  If I lived closer I’d be out there now

Burbots are good eating in the warmer months too, just throw them on ice after unhooking, it only takes about an hour of cold to firm them up, and yes, the BEST fish boil you'll ever wrap your lips around, don't even need drawn butter.

The only thing i know abought these fish even though i never caught one is that the reason why you never herd of them being kept and ate during warm water months is that thay are really deep water thay will be found 400 feet of water in lake michigan thay spawn under the ice. Spawning season is from december through January but will still feed in shallow all the way to march befor going deep. I have always wanted to fish these i did all the reserch.

Thanks for the replies, what I am really after is do guys/gals keep them when caught during warm weather months.  I see most fish them through the ice..
