 half smelt on bottom in the tailrace, but your best bet would be ice fishing Audubon or sakakawea.  Keep in mind that ling numbers are way down for the last decade, so catching one will be a rarity.

Habitat

Burbot live in large, cold rivers, lakes, and reservoirs. Primarily preferring freshwater habitats, but able to thrive in brackish environments for spawning. During summer months, they are typically found in the colder water below the thermocline. In Lake Superior, burbot can live at depths below 300 meters.[4] As benthic fish, they tolerate an array of substrate types including mud, sand, rubble, boulder, silt, and gravel for feeding.[5] Adults will construct extensive burrows in the substrate for shelter during the day. As crepuscular fish, burbot are active hunters at night.[4] Burbot populations are adfluvial during the winter months, and they migrate to near-shore reefs and shoals to spawn,[4] preferring spawning grounds of sand or gravel

Sakakawea can produce ling.  In the lower water years it was not uncommon to pull one ling every other trip.  Some up to 6 to 9 pounds.

During high water years I caught zero.  This winter (ironically, lower water) my brother pulled one out of the ice.  We were out quite a bit this year so should have caught more but it just seems there is something about the low water years.  Maybe it is simple as the water levels force us into the area that the ling hangout regardless of water level but the only way anglers find them is if they fish.  During highwater years the places I fished this year would be way too deep for normal fishing.

Here's the beast from this spring.  April 27th actually:
