I have been fishing Lake Rosseau for years and have never seen a Whitefish come out of the hole. I know they are present as a friend used to net with MNRF and caught lots. Has anybody ever caught one while ice fishing or tried to specifically target them on Rosseau? I would like to give it a try. Any information would be appreciated.

A guy caught one last year when I was out there. Do what they do on simcoe meegs jig on bottom and a hook tied 2 feet up just like a drop shot and smash bottom.

I spoke to MNR when they were coming off Lake a couple years ago. They said there a ton of whitefish but they are in the deepest parts of the lake the average angler won’t reach them.

I saw one caught last year maybe a pound or two in size in one of the smaller bays at about 60- 80 fow. the guy was using 3" minnows on a jig head with a trailing minnow. after that i started setting my second line with a two way spreader and a couple smaller minnows that always seem to get into my bait bucket
