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.

      If a stream is non-navigable but has been meandered, the shoreland owners own to the thread (centerline) of the stream. If a lake or stream is non-navigable and not meandered, ownership of the bed is as indicated on individual property deeds    its sad that just a few bad apples can ruin it for the rest of us,

      That would be unfortunate if it was shut down. But I wouldn't blame the property owners if they did, as I wouldn't like my property getting trashed either. My oldest daughter, and son, both caught their first rainbow trout out of there 2 years ago, and it's always a must stop on our way to Grand Marais. How is it possible that the river itself is private property?

      For anyone that's interested, the docks were not in on the east side of Island as of Saturday. It was nice to see the lake a little higher than it normally is this time of year but the water was still way too cold for much crappie action - at least where I was fishing. Lots of logs and debris floating around in the middle of the lake so pay attention out there!

      thanks everyone for the input, we have decided to drive and take our own kayaks for the convenience. plus we can carry more tackle.

      Thanks. So it hasn't changed much then. Still might go give it a whirl!
