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.

      Thanks for the ice report, Sculpin.  With the weather forecasted for the upcoming week, I'm sure I'll be up there next weekend, hopefully walking out from the northwest side.   van, yeah, I hear you.  I've been up to LOW a few times, and it is very fun to know there's the chance of catching a monster....but driving all that way for a bucket full of 12'' fish?  Not my cup of tea. I'll save the money and buy three dozen T-bones to make it through the winter. I'm sure people who know the lake better than I do have done better on the weekends I'm up there, but the reports at the resort we used were pretty similar.    I like the northwest side on ML because it's where we've been for almost 20 years, but it also has close access to sand, rocks, whatever weeds remain, mud flats, transitions, etc. The only thing we don't have up there is extensive gravel.

      I'm curious to see how this works out. Do you plan to keep the battery warm while not is use on the water?
