Holiday demand high for Lake Michigan whitefish

Commercial fishing operators are doing a booming business for whitefish from Lake Michigan and the bay of Green Bay.  Late winter and early spring are traditionally big times for whitefish.  Charlie Henriksen, the owner of Henriksen Fisheries in Ellison Bay, says local stores and restaurants are leading the demand for whitefish.  

Henriksen also says the overlapping Easter and Passover holidays are generating a lot of orders, especially in larger cities.

Henriksen describes whitefish, which can be caught year-round, as the bread and butter for commercial fishing operators.
