    Default Round Whitefish?

    How common are these things here in Ontario and do people catch them often?

    Not common in Ontario & I never caught one.
    Don't even know if they are present here.

    Their numbers certainly aren't as high as Lake whitefish, and may never have been, but they're mostly (completely?) river spawners and we've ruined much of their spawning habitat. Also, given the similarity there is a good chance that the ones that are caught are lumped in with lake whitefish most of the time.

    I caught whitefish in a lake near Kinmount. I think they were Round whitefish.We caught them before Christmas through the ice. They were all about the same size, none over about 16 inches.

    Tullibee is another name for cisco/lake herring.

    They're more common in NW Ontario than in Southern Ontario (according to the ROM guide), that being said there's a fair population of them in around Algonquin Park. They are also found in the Great Lakes although I would imagine their numbers would be down due to habitat destruction. They have a preference for deep water so I would imagine they're rarely encountered by anglers (they're probably just as catchable as Lake Whitefish though).

    I've caught them in the Saugeen and they do run most falls. I think they're in most Great Lakes tribs at some point in the fall/winter. My sons and I had a great time with them one July off a pier going into Lake Superior in Sault Ste. Marie.

    If you go to the Fish-on website and type in Round Whitefish in the search area, it will mark out all lakes that the MNR claims to hold Round Whitefish

    We would catch them in rivers on Manitoulin during the deer hunt. Also in Michigan off the Frankfurt pier where locals called them menominee.
