- n. The mongrel whitefish, Coregonus tullibee, of the Great Lakes.
Last winter provided one of the best tullibee bites in several years, and that should continue this season.
It's also worth mentioning the tullibee-catching opportunities on the lake.
According to Thurmer, there was no major die-off of tullibee this summer, which often happens when the water warms.
