Look at the mouth, it does not look like a whitefish, and I fish Lake Superior. A whitefish's mouth simply does not open like that.

Changed my middle name to "You should have been here yesterday".         Remember it's called fishing, not catching.

yeah its a cisco. good size one! they are actually pretty good smoked. yeah you never know where you will find ciscos in the water column. they are all over the place. whitefish, 9 times out of 10 are on or just off bottom. pretty much a glorified carp! haha.

They are pretty good fried if eaten fresh and take the dark meat off teh backside.  But smoked is my fav for cisco ;)  That is a dandy cisco!

Here's a couple of whitefish vids from Big Bay De Noc.  The "Double Trouble jig" from Walleye's Choice out did the swedish pimple again.
