For those of you following our quest, you'll remember that we've been fishing Silver Lake in Madison for three years looking for this fish... so far we've caught Bass, Perch, Sunfish, Pickerel and Lake Trout but no sign of the whitefish.
|Dave is determined to catch this fish!|
Our hopes as always were very high when we headed out, but it was extremely windy which made it nearly impossible to get our lines down to the fish. Whitefish spend time in the cold depths of the lake, we were fishing between 60 and 150 feet of water. Our fish finder was saying we were near the fish, but the wind caused our boat to move so fast that our lures were waterskiing behind the boat as we sailed across the lake.
|Catch of the Day!|
So we are dealing with another epic failure, but we are resilient and will rally!
