Whitefish Topic of discussion

How about a whitefish category?
They're one of my prime targets & others in Canada & the northern states also target them.

If there was enough member support for white fish it would be a no brainer. As it is you might be the only guy on the whole site who has ever caught one. I can't dedicate slim resources like that. Show me twenty guys who fish for them, who would participate in the tournament, and your on.

I watched an icefishing show on whitefish the other day. They looked like fun! The fisherman said that if you are going to eat them, you need to slit their throats and bleed them out. They looked like a decent sized fish too. A fella could get some nice fillets off of them. It said that they were pretty good eating. I've never seen one, let alone eaten one. Do you eat them?

Ive heard that whitefish are very good to eat, never had any. Dont think they are around here, Maybe the big pond to the north.
Early to bed early to rise. Fish like hell and make up Lies!!

I eat them all the time.
Their excellent eating, fried or poached in white wine.
IMO they are the best smoked fish there is.
They are in all the Great Lakes and also deeper inland lakes in Canada & the northern US.
Generally most places that have lake trout will have whitefish.
They are targeted across Canada, Wisconsin, the UP of Michigan & parts Maine that I know of.

BTW: That's a whitefish in my avatar. IIRC it was about 6 1/2 lbs.
