Any guesses when this will start this year. With ice out coming soon, I've gotta have something to look forward to. grin.gif

I'm also looking forward to the old sucker run. I made it out only twice last year and plan to do it a bit more this year.

I say we should be fishing suckers on April 5th

Once the new green shoots of grass poke through the old dead grass along the river bank about two inches. That's what usually signals to me anyway. confused.gif

We should pick a day for an informal gtg. Maybe some dogs, some brews, and a stretch of shore?

I think an informal GTG would be a great time.

Sat, April 14th?

I'd be game for a GTG, just don't pick April 14. Stream trout opener, I'll be chasing trout.

I got in on it a bit last year. Definately a fun time. Could probably even do a evening GTG. Here's one from last year.

Nice Silver Redhorse! Those fish are a blast, and Southeast MN is home to the best Silver runs in the nation. I can't wait to get into them this spring! We have an annual weekend get-together during the sucker runs down on the Root, and it's a blast. ~hogsucker

      I read that they are going to close the walleye season on 9-5-17 regardless of whether the state's quota is met. Fall fishing gone again........    With these highly restrictive regulations that favor ones desire over another's desire will start to pit fisherman against each other.   If we need to have less fishing pressure on the lake then maybe we should close down all of the public launches. Then some would fish other lakes but the balance would be forced to pay to launch at a resort since we are worried about them. Then that extra business could cover their losses if we eliminate live bait which would hurt their fishing launch business. Maybe we should just ban all paid launch fishing and ban all paid guide service on the lake which just brings additional undesired fishing pressure. Maybe restrict the number of hours any one person is allowed to fish the lake throughout the year.   Heck, I would even favor closing walleye fishing for 3 or 4 years straight if that would get us back to some normal regulations.   Yes, these outbursts are why I do not text any more after 10:00 at night. Time to give up the keyboard also.......

      I would look in holes and flats near them.  Deep depends on how shallow the section that you're fishing is.
