Welcome Sucka-Our newst Forum Guide Pro

5 posts in this topic

I'd like to personally welcome Derek "The Sucka" as our newest Forum Guide Pro at Fishing Minnesota.

Here is a little about him:

He's always ready to get out on the water. He's a young buck going on his 25th year of fishing. As for patterning his fishing techniques he's only been doing that for about 13 years.

Rivers have always been his love. He makes a trip to lakes once in a while, but his true passion is in current.

The Mississippi and the St.Criox are such ancient and incredible fisherys that they attract most of his attention.

He loves to take people fishing and love it when people with him catch fish. He's always willing to give advise or listen to a tip relating to fishing.

He would like to spend some more time down on pools 3 and 4 and learn the fisherys there too.

His areas of proficiency lie on the Mississippi River between the Ford Dam to a little below downtown St.Paul and Marine to Kinnikinnic on the St. Croix River.

Derek will be here often to help all of us river buffs and share info along with our veteran Turk and Crappie Getter.

The Sucka really enjoys exchanging good fishing information to make those River Trips more enjoyable.

Welcome Sucka!!!

Goodfishin : )

Welcome aboard "The Sucka". I have been following your reports and it seems you know a thing or two about these rivers we all love!! I'm sure you will make a good addition as a moderator. Someday us moderators(and anyone else for that matter) should hook up on the river and wet a line. I have been talking to Turk a little bit about getting out but I have been busy hopefully sometime in Sept.

Good fishing to all!!

Welcome aboard Sucka! I will keep an eye out for you on the Croix. I don't get out there as often as I wish to anymore, but I really enjoy that awesome and diverse fishery so close to home. Quite honestly, I spend more time out there in the winter than the Summer. If you smell venison brats cooking over a propane heater, it's most likely me! Stop by for one!

Thank you all for the warm welcome mat! I hope I can help anyone catch fish as much as Crappie Getter and Turk have on the Croix.

I've seen some good posts from all of you that replied here. This really is a special forum to be a part of and I know it has helped me in my fishing as well as broadened my horizons on locations around the state.

Gem-Eye, you're the first person I've actually fished with from the boards here since I've started posting, thanx!

Rick, thanx for the bump, I'll try not to let you down! I have been trying to get out as much as possible just so I can come back home and report, heh heh!

See ya all on the water!!!!

      For all you pan fish lovers, check out this beautiful pumpkin seed I found guarding the bed while I was out bass fishing. Couldn't help but get some video of this beaut! Enjoy!

      My live well has an adjustable shut off valve in side for filling and running fresh water. If I don't turn it down to a tickle when I have fish in it, it will over flow into the boat once full because the pump is pumping faster then the overflow can keep up.  Not sure if you have one of them in yours?  I've even had a few big eyes flipping around in there hit the valve open more.

      I believe minnows are a class of fish that remain small throughout their lives. They are part of the food chain and because of their small size we take advantage of their position in the ecosystem and use them for bait. There are exceptions of course but, as an example, for the most part adult golden shiners will typically grow to about 3" - 5" long. Adult fathead minnows will be 2" - 3" long typically.

      If the hoses or hose connections are not leaking check : Live well intake connection, make sure that it is screwed on tight into the transom and that it is sealing. Could be live well splash over also if you are in rough water, but probably not with your type of leak. It may still be leaking rivets as they may not leak unless you put a lot of water inside of the boat. It does sound like you have a bad connection in one of your live well connections! Cliff

      Just wondering if any one will give me pointers on this lake??  Not specific spots.  Going to be at Pocahontas Resort July 1 - July 8th.  I am bass guy for most part but have kids (6 & 4) that love to fish for panfish and want them to keep entertained.  Any tips or information would be greatly appreciated!!!  Thanks!
