How do I catch open water whitefish? I've always wanted to catch whitefish out of the boat but I'm not sure were I should start. Anyone have any proven methods that they don't mind sharing? Any information would be very appreciated!
Spoons usually are the hot ticket for me...just today I caught three on Diefenbaker using a small No. 00 silver spoon. shawno
Use a gill net! (just kidding)
I've never really targeted white fish but catch then regularly. I've found them on the same structure I fish for walleye using same lures. I usually put them back 'cause I don't care for them, but that's just me.
I was kinda thinking a 12 gauge. I always see them surfacing near the boat while going along with the electric. Plenty close enough for the 3 inch mags.
