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 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

      Nice fish and plenty of them is what has been happening this week. Almost as many slots as keepers.  We have been jigging but pulling spinners or cranks works great too. One of the attached pics is what is showing up in the deep mud, mostly Saugers now but more Walleyes and tons more fish piling in the next few weeks. Joe Paradis from Plummer Mn out with me this morning behind the fish board and, from Thursday fishing buddy Mike Lindholm with the biggest, fattest, best looking 25 incher I have seen in a while. Having plenty of fun fishing in the wind

      Bugs have been brutal all summer up their.   Glad you had fun!!!
    • JBMasterAngler
      Well, we went back up there to make up for last month. There was no making up anything! Bugs were horrendous, and the fishing was slow to nonexistent. The biggest point of going back up was to fish West Bearskin and Two Island lakes, and we didn't make it to either this time around either.    We still had lots of fun. Did a lot of hiking and sightseeing, particularly on the way up and he way home. Seen a lot of things I've never seen before. Was nice to sit out by the harbor and eat Sven & Ole's. Definitely a lot more people up there in July, as opposed to June. Well, we'll be back in October.

      BTW the "no fish on my spots" was just a riff on Tom''s "no fish under my dock".  Sorry for any confusion.  I'm not much of a musky fisherman, so wouldn't know if there are or not, really.
    • delcecchi
      It spit her out after the first bite..
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Have heard of people getting bit before but that was a really nasty looking wound!! And some claim that Muskies do not like to eat walleyes! People must taste better! Cliff

      My last trip to Mille Lacs I lost a big eye right before I saw it with the jiggin rap...Then 10 minutes later I hooked a 28.5" eye and that was the most scared I've been fighting a fish lol... Every head shake I was darn near dropping my rod tip in the water lol.
