Any pointers on where to look for suckers in this area?

Thanks in advance,

Suckers are good in all rivers around here. The St Fransis, The Elk River and Mississippi. Crow and Rum are good as well. I realy never tried in area lakes for suckers. Have tried for carp in Little Elk, Mitchell, Big lake and Briggs.

You could give Buffalo a try. Might hold some because of the river running through it. I hope it helps.

For suckers, look for smaller streams that are a little cleaner. I fished suckers in the creek between Prior lake and Spring had a great time, most the fish weight over 6lbs.

only used jigs with plastics.

A little early yet, but in a couple more weeks they should be stacking up like cord wood in the rivers. Any deeper holes or around bends seem to really get hot around the end of April, first of May.

good luck

Well we finally got into them today. It took three trips this week, but me and my boys found them. This evening we got 5 suckers and this carp in about 1 1/2 hours on the Rum River. We had been on the Old Mississippi twice this week and had not found them. We had fun though. Will be back down on Saturday and possibly Sunday. My boys are troupers and brave the cold with me. The Mississippi was not happening, but the Rum was a blast. The kids in the back ground were fishing for suckers and caught some walleye's and cats to. Between the group of them they caught over 15 fish in a couple of hours. Good luck and will post more in a day or two.

      Cliff, you finally made it down to our end of the lake!  Did anybody catch a walleye?  I'm not totally turned off by them, I'll still stop by for a snack or drink...or both. You can't beat the setting - sitting out on the deck!

      Today the Lake Vermilion Guides League held an ice fishing day for 35 5th and 6th graders from the Cook area at the Landing. The Landing very graciously hosted this group of kids for us. I found the owners to be very friendly and happy to be a part of the kids outing! I would not hesitate to stop in there for a meal or drink if I get in that area again! Cliff

      I was on an Annandale area lake yesterday with only about 9" of ice which was getting rotten and black in places. The lake had 15" of clear ice and I was driving a Silverado on it a week earlier. There were quite a few areas where water had drained though cracks and opened up fist-sized holes within the crack.   All in all, the lake was perfectly safe for walking and more than likely not rotten or thin enough to make it unsafe for ATVs at this point. The landing was is pretty good shape, all things considered, but if one were to put an ATV in the drink, that'd be where it'd happen.
