Sky Full of Bacon 12: In the Land of Whitefish from Michael Gebert on Vimeo.

Mike Gebert's latest Sky Full of Bacon video podcast continues his look into fishing and sustainability by turning his camera to Great Lakes whitefish. With some assistance from Carl Galvan of Supreme Lobster, Gebert went on a fishing run with a Wisconsin family that has been trolling Lake Michigan for whitefish for 130 years.

Gebert screened the podcast Monday night at the Shedd Aquarium. The pre-screening reception also featured some amazing whitefish dishes from Eve's Troy Graves and Paul Virant of Vie. Both chefs showed that, with the right care and preparation, whitefish can easily stand side-by-side with more popular seafood.
