Ice Fishing For Burbot – Lures and Techniques for Ling Cod

Ling, or fresh water cod are probably one of the most prolific species that one can plan to target in the cold, deep northern lakes of Ontario.  These fish are primarily a nocturnal feeder.  They live deep, very deep, and at night they slither their way up from these depths seeking forage in shallower areas.  They will continue to feed right through the night, providing tons of action for you and your fishing buddies for many hours.

Aside from their enormous populations in most northern lakes is the fact that these are one of the tastiest fish species available to be angled through the ice in northern Ontario.  Once you’ve tasted some fresh battered and fried ling, you’ll quickly realize why they’ve come to be called “poor mans lobster”.

Watch the video below for some great tips from Tim Smyth of Mad Fisher Media on how to target this easy to catch fish while ice fishing.
