I've decided that this fish will be my last open water fish of the year. The weather -- dropping to 10 degrees below zero this week -- might make the decision easy for me but even if we get a late October warming spell this lake whitefish just seems the right one to call it a day. Not as spectacular as Andy's River but I'll take it. Besides, the lake whitefish have been dicks all year and finally on Sunday I didn't feel like a total schmuck fishing for them. The bite was good as was the cisco run bountiful. Got some meat in the freezer. All ready for the crap storm of November, followed -- hopefully -- by five months of awesome ice fishing bliss.
Here's another pic from the Sunday. The beads I tied for this trip were killer, I must say.
