Sucker and carp fishing. The Mississippi was not, but the Rum was hot!

5 posts in this topic

Well, I could not stayed penned up. A bad day fishing, is better than a day not fishing at all. My two boy’s were bugging me as well. We tried the Otsego park twice this week. A couple of bits was all we got. Kid’s had fun on the play ground. This evening we tried a spot on the Rum River. Boy, what a difference. In an hour and a half, we caught 5 suckers and the carp displayed below. What a blast. The kids had fun and I had fun. The Group of kids in back ground were fishing for sucker, but caught several walleye’s and a couple of cats. Needless to say, my boys and I will be down again on Saturday and possibly Sunday. Nothing bets a fun day with the kids. Below carp photo, I will post some Otsego images. Good luck and will post later.

P.S.

Rivers are very low. This is not normal spring time occurance. I have found my "spring standby spots" are not were they should be foe level. It made things tough.

      If you chase panfish late ice, make sure you get a sled with high sides. My Otter Pro has already made several water crossings, while keeping my gear high and dry.

        You just have to remove any and all the bird seed at least 10 minutes before the warden arrives and you're legal.    Near as we could tell the little guy got spooked by something and when he barreled through the yard the clearest path seemed to be the lower deck due to our loaded sleds n cars n stuff.  The most daylight was coming through the railing.  Instead of jumping the railing he lowered his head to part the spindles like saplings but these didn't move!    If you look at the spindle above hind quarter you can see the mark where his face planted.  There was a tuft of hair stuck to it that matched what was missing by his eye.   I was out there when it happened.  I didn't see him do it but heard the crash and the bellar and thought someone fell.  I hustled up there calling to see if someone needed help and found the deer kicking and taking his last breaths.  The others in the house heard it too and came to the door.  We were all pretty stunned.     Thats the best I can come up with.  I hope you can buy it!

      Mercury is emitted from coal burning power plants and can travel a long ways.  Sulfate or maybe it is sulfide is from mining.
