Anyone been finding any decent numbers of rough fish? I have shot a few, but have not found any decent numbers yet.

Its weird. I haven't even been seeing suckers where I have seen them in the past. I must just be in all the wrong places.

I've been told the sucker run has long passed. Last weekend I hooked into a huge redhorse, probably 8 plus, but lost him at the shore line, no net. This year has been one of the worst I have seen as far as suckers and redhorse. Didn't even get a chance to warm up the smoker frown.gif Dang the weather!

Not much of a sucker run here either, shot one smoker full. Been picking up a few carp, wish I had more time to be out there right now.

The suckers ran hard over 2 weeks ago, and it was a brief run. The carp ran shortly thereafter and I've seen some in the shallows, but numbers are really down compared to what I've seen in the past. confused.gif I accidently snagged a couple carp in the tail 2 weeks ago going for some crappies in the shallows. They were thick then, but suddenly disappeared. Good luck...

I can't help you there. All I noticed is the suckers and carp, and it has been an unusual run for these fish as already noted by other's observations.

      Great stuff guys

      The lakes took a beating and I was not out on Sunday to see the damage. Saturday I saw the first 4 to 5 inches turn soft. Be careful and check the ice conditions

      6 inch that is a 4.5 inch

      Sometimes you need em that size.      You guys did push me over the edge so I had to go out Sunday afternoon.  Thanks for that.

      I was going to try to go tomorrow (walking out in metro) despite the rain which appears to be light and I have a portable. Are you concerned about the ice conditions deteriorating throughout the day?  Or just for the rest of the week?
