Sucker Fishing

4 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?

Pretty much any stream or any river you can find will be a great place to find them. They are pretty easy to catch where the Sauk flows into the Miss (in Saint Cloud) and where the Watab flows into the Miss (in Sartell). You can also catch them down by Wilson Park, but I'd recommend either of the two places I mentioned earlier.

Yup, i'd agree with Mike those spots are filled with suckers. Below the st.cloud dam is to bad either. On the west side do past the wall and set up like you would for cats or carp with a nightcrawler. On the east side go down the shoreline to the sandy beach area and do the same thing ( that whole area is packed with em. Its been a while since I did that but from what I hear that part of the river hasn't changed much.

Hope that helps.

      I crossed over to the dark side of smallies about 15 years ago. Mostly chase pannies in winter but used to chase eyes a few times on the hard water each season.   I could post a ton of pics if you need more proof.

      I was up over the weekend and my shoreline was getting pretty sketchy.  Had a pocket of open water down the shore about a 100 yards. Where I could see the bottom in two to three feet of water.  Walked out about a hundred yards and popped four holes Saturday afternoon. There was 17- 18.5"s of ice in those four holes. Looking at the forecast I can't see the ice sticking around too much longer.  The holes I popped had 5-6" of pretty mushy cloudy stuff on top and about 12"s of pretty solid stuff underneath it.
