Build-A-Burbot: How to Make & Set a Cusk Line for Ice Fishing

February 1, 2020 @ 3:00 pm - 5:00 pm

Have you ever wanted to go ice fishing but just never seemed to find the right time? Well on the first of February you can finally get your chance. Here at the Squam Lakes Association we will be learning how to create and set up a Cusk line! If you’re wondering what a cusk is you may have heard it by one of its other common names. The cusk or burbot (Lota lota) is a gorgeous fish. With long dorsal and anal fins and a streamlined body it looks very eel-like. Don’t let that confuse you though; the cusk is the only freshwater species in the Cod family. 

REGISTRATION REQUIRED: Limited to 5 participants. MUST HAVE A FISHING LICENSE. NO EXCEPTIONS $10.00 charge for cusk line materials if not bringing your own. Please bring check or cash on day of program.  Click here to register for this program.
