Sucker Run On The Cannon?

7 posts in this topic

I drove through morristown today and stopped at the dam, I seen some fish trying to jump up the falls. At first I thought they were carp, but they were too dark and skinny and long. So I'm assuming the suckers are starting to run up the river? How much longer until the white bass are running? Man, I wanted to have a fishing pole with me so bad! It looked very promising to wet a line, especially after I spooked some fish along the shoreline...either sunnies or small stripers.

I wouldn't doubt if those were northerns that you were seeing! I can remeber that last year when the ice was coming off the lakes the gators were attempting to up the falls! I wasn't sure what they were at first but I went up to check it out and they were indeed pike! I have been catching some real nice ones since the ice came off (two days ago) on smelt in areas with current coming into the lakes!

Hopefully you were doing this in S.D. where I assume the season is still open? Anyway, I guess they could've been small ones. I never got a good look at them, but they were dark with orangish fins. And this is the time of year they are spawning.

Probably notherns,suckers are silvery,they run after the notherns,I'm told to eat the notherns eggs,I guess thats why their natural enemies!

      Hey, Here a quick update on actual ice thickness or snow cover on trout. 14 inchs of ice pressure ridge out there. if you are  on a snowmobile if traveling fast on it watch for it. Truck or car i do not recommend on trout with pressure ridge. And yes i have been on the whitefish chain this year in truck. just not on trout. just my 2 cents

      Thanks for the info everyone. And Borch that is good to know too.  I try to spend 2-3 hours looking on cedar each trip, but It's a lot of water to break down , and having only been out hardwater cattin 6 times so far I still have a lot to learn.  Generally I spend a lot of my 3 hours losing confidence and then wind up at the meth hole to catch a few .  Putting in the work is what makes it so fun once it all comes together though!
