Whitefish lake is not too far from where we usually fish so I decided to head there after seeing some nice walleye on Instagram posted by a local. Careful though the water level is down and there are exposed rock islands and large boulders at the launch, stay trimmed up for at least 100-200 yards out. We headed across to a couple underwater islands and started trolling crankbaits. The first to go was a minnow pattern Rapala Tail Dancer. The fish fought long and hard and turned out to be a big northern pike. Not a bad fish for the first fish ever at a lake. Beginners luck I guess. Then we went on to catch some nice walleye as well on crankbaits and jigging a kastmaster. Get out there and try it out seems to be loaded with fish judging by my fish finder.
