The top is what I know as a Cisco
The bottom. Tulibee or whitefish.

Whitefish have a mouth like a sucker or carp.

Cisco has a mouth similar to a perch.

Muskies and big walleyes love ciscos.

I've actually never kept a cisco, but I'm going to be on a lake that has them in a couple weeks and I will keep some if I get any.

I posted all 3 fish for clarification. Off the MN DNR fish I’d website. I have fished all three fish in my 40 yrs of fishing. White fish and Tulipee are good eating. MoonEye not so much. MoonEye is just one strange fish. The eye is huge.
