Sucker Fishing

6 posts in this topic

I realize it's early for this question, but thought I'd try to get a jumpstart on it.

I'm looking for a place to try to catch suckers this spring. We take them to Canada (filleted, of course) to use for lake trout fishing. Anyone have any recommendations where I can find them in streams or rivers in the area?

Try the creek between Cedar and Clearwater on Co. Rd 6. They used to run in there pretty hard but its been a few years since I have been down there.

They would be hard to catch there the current is pretty strong and the water is shallow. We catch alot of carp and suckers south of French Lake shore fishing the crow river. There is an access you can fish from.

as jiggin jim stated the crow river, but i think that we always caught redhorse (same thing if you ask me). i used to live in saint michael and there is a spot there that a lot of kids used to hang out, not sure if it is still a hang out anymore but great fishing. if your interested in its location shoot me an e-mail bearbait87@yahoo

      They guy that taught me to diver hunt had all wood decoys. They ride totally different than the plastic decoy. In low light hard to tell from real birds. That was in 1976. I think he put out about 50 bills and goldeneye dekes

      I think it might be time for calling season. I've got the itch. Been working the hand calls the last few days. The neighborhood dogs and cats fall for em almost every time. New batteries in the foxpro and the critter just in case. Got plenty of #3 buckshot for the 20ga and the rifle is ready to bark(as soon as muzzle deer is closed).   please stop and share your seasons ups and downs here. Otherwise I will try not to bore you all too bad with my pour calling and shooting.    Good of luck and happy calling.

      Yep, glad they took the snow out of the forecast for next week except for some flurries on Sunday but that shouldn't hurt anything. They lowered the temps a little more also. If the forecast holds and the wind stays down I think the lake could lock up by the 9th or 10th. Walked down to the shore this morning expecting to see some ice along the shore but nope. Looked like there was a little skim out in the bulrushes but that was it.
