Burbot
Size: 
11 pounds 10 ounces

I was out fishing for lake trout on the winter solstice over 80 feet of water and manged to catch this enormous size burbout that was hanging in the water column around twenty feet. Personal Best to date. I took the fish to Fairbanks ADF&G for a trophy fish entry. Alaska's Trophy Fish Program recognizes anglers who catch a burbot minimum 8lbs with a nice trophy certificate and enters the fish in a data base. I found out that my burbot was the second largest from the lake I caught it from recorded in the data base.
