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.

      I've been scouting public land like crazy to find some spots for upcoming archery and the spring turkey season and haven't found a shed yet. I even ventured into a sure bedding area hoping I'd see one in there and no dice.    It shouldn't be too much longer.

      No one else getting concerned with the Wild's lack of intensity??? darn good when they want to be and awful mediocre when not buzzing....... Been a long time since I watched them play 3 full periods of real hockey.....

      Just looked at the harbor cam in canal park and looked like there was two guys out fishing from the pier. Now that the gates are open I would say that's what they were doing. Feel free to share any reports you have or would like to share. Good luck all!

      I grew up in this area and if walk in a ways  you can be all by yourself. Best time deer hunting can be during duck season when people are moving the deer.
