You need to use a long fishing rod with sturdy fishing line with a diameter of 0.4 mm, that it can withstand loads up to 6 pounds. The length of the line is 15 meters. You also need a heavy sinker and a single or double hooks from No. 1 to No. 6 (tees junk). The rod is fixed on the shore. At this time the fish is kept near the shore, so fishing is always performed from the shore. You can use up to 10 of the bottom rods. To arrange the fishing rods need each other for a few meters, so they are not confused. Do it before dark. Can be attached to a ground rod bell. This will help in the dark to hear the bite.
As bait live fish is the best delicacy for burbot. You can take the brush, roach or gudgeon. In the second place a dead fish. As well as a worm, frog or meat shells.
The sinker is lowered to the bottom and do supply of fishing line to one and a half meters. As soon as darkness falls, burbot goes hunting. He grabs everything he sees. It is best to use visible great white trolling with planted fish, which must lie at the bottom. Below burbot are sucked in the bait together with the catch and sinker, the distance from the hook to the sinkers should be left up to 5 cm

It is very slippery and difficult to hold in hands.
Always take a supply of leashes. If the fish swallowed the nozzle so deep that I can’t reach it, it is not necessary to pull out of the mouth hook. Better to put on a new one.
