Thx guys! Yeah they are different! That little mouth! I've fished this river 3 times and got my first ever Whitefish(12") on my first trip(15 months ago)! Yesterday my friend and I landed some decent Browns but nothing over 16".So this fish was the big fish of the day.

Really nice Whitefish. That's one of the biggest I've seen in this state. WTG

Thx,I was telling my friend about them before we starting fishing that they get up to 5+ LBS! So being able to land a real nice one made the day!
