Pout-O-Rama 2013 Dates?
<p>Loosely speaking Burbot are in the Tribs (somewhere) from early December to early February.&nbsp; The actual peak comes some time in early January.&nbsp; Pegging the exact peak is nearly impossible, Burbot are tricky critters and only they know their comings and goings.&nbsp; The first couple weeks of January mark a major change in behavior - due to the spawning activity the numbers of Burbot present in small areas becomes very large and they become active during the day.&nbsp; Outside of a a couple week window daytime Burbot are horribly inconsistent and unpredictable.&nbsp; Fortunately, males hit the spawning zones first and stay last so good action can be found even if you hit the spot a little early or a little late.&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>We need to pick some dates to start - any availablities the following dates?</p> <ul> <li> December 29th or 30th</li> <li> January 5th or 6th</li> <li> January 12th or 13th</li> </ul> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>I&#39;ll toss out that I&#39;m doubtful of my availablity for the 29th/30th but I might be able to make it work.&nbsp; My personal recommendation would be the 5th or 6th for the most probable date to catch one end or the other of the good action.</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>Post up your availablity please!</p> <p>&nbsp;</p> <p>&nbsp;</p>

I would think that 12/29-30

I would think that 12/29-30 would be tough for a lot of people with the holidays and all that. 1/5-6 would work for me, but I'm flexible.

Agreed that 5/6th is the

Agreed that 5/6th is the "best" date - though it wouldn't be much of a Pout-O-Rama if nobody showed up...

 

So lets toss this down - 5th or 6th please vote up if either or both of these dates work for you.  I'm neutral on the Sat vs. Sun thing - both days work for me but then I probably have the shortest drive...

I was gonna pass, but warm up

I was gonna pass, but warm up b*tches sounds like an awesome idea. Put me down for all three weekends! We will for sure need more parking and a more PC job title for the warming attendants.

 

the weekend of the 5th-6th is the more promissing of the three for me.

 

Carpy Diem!

I wonder how the ice will be

I wonder how the ice will be this year?  Any updates on the pout run?

No updates on the Pout run -

No updates on the Pout run - I still gotta call my buddy in town.  No question that at there are least a fair number of males in the river by now.  I do know people are ice fishing the river, not sure about gooseneck but that spot tends to form pretty good ice.  It isn't shaping up to be a great year for ice but Duluth and into the arrowhead is getting some nice cold nights.  Over here in Lake Superior's banana belt things are still pretty wide open.  The Big C isn't getting the cold nights they are getting to the west.  It should freeze up fast if we get them though, especially if the dang wind holds off...
