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.

      Went up to lake for week of fishing fished Adrian's  Morris point and Long point  6 days on lake. Fished Morris 3 days 18 ft of water west of resort. Did very well on good sized 16 to 18 in. walleyes. Slid out into 22 ft one day and did o.k. there too. Long point was just as good to me if not better fished 30 ft there. We had fish for a few meals and we brought our fish home. Didn't seem to matter what you had on. I used white glow  and pink glow.Sometimes minnow and bobber worked and sometimes jigging worked best. In my opinion fishing was good had no trouble catching fish.
