Minnesota Eelpout Fishing
They’re not much to look at, but they taste great. These freshwater cod are very deep and hard to locate during the open-water season. Fortunately they’re active and not hard to catch through the ice.
Winter: Found in the same areas as walleyes – flats, bars, humps, etc. The late-February spawning period is particularly good. The most productive time is before first light in the morning and from sunset on. A Northland Buckshot Rattle
Spoon or jigs tipped with a minnow head
and fished near the bottom will trigger them.
Tip…. glow colors are hot!
