I have fished lake athapapuskow for several years now with good success.Always used sucker for chum,now I can get white fish easyer than sucker.Would whitefish be as good as sucker for chum? Both being bait fish and all.

Whitefish will work better than the sucker, whitefish have more body fat than lean suckers.
Whitefish are in the same family as the Ciscoe and will have more fatty oils which should last longer than suckers. I use large tulibee (Ciscoes) ground up for winter pike, dispersed a day or two before fishing and while were there.
