A ling, not sure I would even touch that thing.  Good catch, if you had a long trench you could go for a tobogan ride.

Right on Brent! I'm glad that you ate it as it's one of the best examples of not judging a book by its slimy cover.

I can see why people would despise them if they weren't a native species but man they get some serious hate put on them. They might as well be Asian carp for how they're despised. I just happened to be talking to a guy over Christmas that said he would often watch people (a couple friends included) leave them on the ice just to die. The people never ate them because they thought they were disgusting but he said there were people of certain ethnic groups that would collect them and they were snickered at.

He eventually cooked some up at a get together and said that it was some red snapper that he had caught. When his buddy had some he couldn't stop saying how great it was so of course that's when Tony let him know. "You're kidding!" lol.

So who's the unenlightened ethnic group?

Many people that will work to save the habitat of a cute creature would be more than happy to pave over a snake den. Beauty doesn't just lie inside the eyes of a creature, but rather in it's place within a healthy ecosystem. Just think of how many ugly things support your favorite game fish :D

I do think snakes are cute by the way :)

Anyway Brent, congratulations and good work.

My wife brought back some fillets from NWT last year.  I would agree that they are one of the best freshwater fishes I've ever ate (not as good as a brook trout on a very low maple campfire in Algonquin park).  Still ugly, slimy and I think they would take a lot of bashing on the head to stop it from slithering so you could fillet it.

They live a loooooong time out of water, especially when it's cold. How do I know this you ask? I'm not sure whether I should say this now that the karma thing is enabled and I blab on about ethics ...

Years and years ago I dropped a big one off at a friend's house as he said he would like one. He wasn't home and there I was with this fish so...

When he eventually got home, he heard splashing from the bathtub and had no clue what the noise was. Ran in to his bathroom to see this huge eel-like fish thrashing around lol. It had been in a bag for hours before I put it in his tub and added some water. They are adapted for deep and often low oxygen conditions - they're pretty tough.

What a slime fest too, I'm sure he used a little extra soap in his burbot bath the next time.
