I've fished Nosbonsing in the past & never caught a herring there.
But that picture is a herring.
Also never caught a whitie there.

Could've been an oddball? Like the salmon caught in Nip some time ago?

I was also told of a splake caught in Nip. Odd because they apparently are not stocked anywhere near it.

Mark the day! To be fair, it's built like a Nip herring, which are built like whitefish. Way deeper in the body than average.

And according to the MNR's nets, they are the most abundant fish in Nosbonsing.

if it wasn't the fact that it was mnr testing i would have called bullshit. those numbers seem crazy seeing as know one on the lake or here or anyone else i have spoken to has ever heard of a Cisco being caught on nos.

Is there anyway to tell where the nets were pulled from? I know someone here posted pics of a net on shore with all the dead fish but i dont remember seeing any herring then either
