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.

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
