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.

      Based on Cliff's water temp of 38°F, I'm not too sure about Dec. 3-5.  Think it will be more like Dec. 7-9.  I have ice fever and I need a cure.  Last year's first ice PB of 29", 8½# shown below would definitely cure that, but it may not be until Dec. 15-16 now.

      Hey all,   I'm sure everyone has heard, but we're finally getting some nice freezing weather heading in from up north (https://weather.com/weather/tenday/l/56303:4:US). Early next week nightly lows will be sub 10's. So with ice season quickly approaching, I'd like to know what everyone usually does getting prepared to walk on water. As a newbie to ice fishing (only done it the last two seasons), I'm curious to see how everyone preps their gear and what other things you all do before going out on the ice. I finally got my hands on a nice flasher and power auger to add to the rest of my gear, any suggestions for nifty equipment to help make things easier?    This is open for any discussion on any ice fishing tips for newer fishers! Please feel free to ask questions or discuss your prep process for the season. Let's all hope for this forecast to follow through and get some good ice out there.    -JK

      Forecast temperature-wise looks favorable for ice mid- to late-next week, but it does not look like the winds are going to cooperate.

      Would be nice to get some ice that's for sure. No doubt these forums have gone cold. 5-6 years ago there would be dozens of posts daily just on this thread. Maybe the newness of these forums has wore off or because everything has been hashed over a couple hundred times I don't know. I'm ready for some ice fishing I know that.
