does anyone know what dipnetting for whitefish  is ?   you make a hole a foot wide and eight feet long through the ice put into it a 8x8 foot net and let it set on the bottom then you set a dark house over the hole when you see a few fish swiming low aver the net you pull like hell till the frame of the net hits the ice and traps the fish between the ice and the net to get the fish you use a landing net which sometimes takes a long time and you are swearing at the person with the landing net because you see a bunch going under the net  usually we can get our limit for 3 people in 4 hours 25lbs plus on fish per person.

I have never heard there were whitefish in Balsam lake. I did not think it was deep enough.

I know absolutely nothing about whitefishing in Balsam lake or anywhere else.  What I do know is that I need to turn my BS filter all the way up when surfing Lake-Link.com.  I'm not saying there aren't whitefish in Balsam, Fishuhalik, nor I'm I questioning your prowess as fisherman or web surfer.  Just saying that L-L is full of misinfo, in my experience and that IS is wonderfully honest and informative.  Ice fishermen are the best.  I'm still glad I found you guys.

Hmm, maybe I'll have to re-evaluate my thinking about 'em.  I've only been on the site for a couple weeks.  Thanks for the heads up, though
