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.

      @Rick - think this should be moved to South Central?  For now, I will post a link to this one.

      1/8 oz Lindy Frostee Spoons in glow red are a killer choice too, sometimes you won't need bait and sometimes you will. When they are preferring bait I'll throw on a few waxies, a minnow head, or a whole minnow.

      Haven't heard anything about Andrusia, haven't really seen anybody out there lately.

      Resorts moving around to stay on walleyes. Warm weather and a lot of fish.  Most catching in 29-31 ft with glow red, chartreuse, pink and gold with a rattle on jigging spoons tipped with minnow head or tail.  Dead stick plain hook and live minnow or smaller jigs.  Walleye and sauger mix with a jumbo perch, eelpout and sturgeon as well. Electronics improving catch rate as fish are following jigs 4-5 feet off bottom to strike.  20"+ of ice on the lake in most areas along with only 3-6" of snow.  Ice roads allowing full sized vehicles.
      The Rainy River has had a great morning and evening bite but lots of slush on the ice right now. Know the river or use a resort or guide for safety.   The snowmobile trail is staked from Wheeler's Point to Baudette on the river.  Do not deviate from trail unless you are familiar with ice conditions.   Great fishing continues up at the NW Angle.  20+ inches of ice on ice roads traveled by resorts in good shape.  Resorts are fishing in 21-29 feet of water with a nice walleye, sauger, and perch bite. Best colors include glow red, silver, pink, green and gold.  Slab crappies in good numbers being caught in Ontario in 28-34'.  Crappies caught in 25' or greater have high mortality rate, thus keep up to limit and move on to another species.  Work through resorts and stay on ice road.
