On his fourth expedition to gooseneck bend, Catfish_1 finally found success. He braved the frigid weather to finally achieve his goal - to catch a burbot for his lifelist! This beautiful fish is going to become burbot chowder tomorrow, and all of us at roughfish.com hope he will share his recipe - if it turns out to be as delicious as I think it will. Congrats!
