Took the kids out April 1st. Managed to catch 3. Pretty slow so far, but it should start to get better.

Tried worms for suckers below a dam on a creek. No action.

I've twice had my kids still fishing a worm on bottom in a shallow pond while I sight-fished carp with wooly buggers. 

We've been shut out on bait so far and I've only had one carp take on a fly. It broke me off.

I sure am seeing a lot of carp, but they don't seem anxious to eat yet.

I have yet to see any evidence of a sucker run on the creeks I've visited. Haven't heard any good reports from others either.

Friends are catching a few redhorse on the St. Croix. Also I've been hearing reports of white suckers biting on sunny days near Becker MN. Have yet to catch one myself.

Went out today and got five redhorse on the Saint Croix. All on bottom rigged crawlers, bombed out as far as they can go. Three shortheads, one golden, and one silver. The sucker run is starting here, and it'll only get better.
