Does any one know of any lake or small streams around the Grand Forks area that might hold enough suckers to try catching a few. anything within 100 miles or so. Thanks

Upper Red lake might to close to that 100 mile mark but the ditches fill up full of suckers in the spring their. Bring a pickup and fill the box full if your looking to smoke fish. Just make sure it's a sucker and not a walleye!

You don't have to travel.

You can catch all the suckers you want, several species, including redhorse, down by the dams.

We have spent many days fishing below the Red Lake River dam on the Point, right down at the Point itself. Just put on a slip bobber and set it 1.5 to 2 feet deep. Put a crawler on the hook and drop the line in only two or three feet offshore along the rip-rap.

Fishing this way seems to be better on rip-rap along the Red Lake River side of the Point than on the EGF/dike side of the RLR.

Mixed bag of sucker, walleye, sauger, goldeye, a rare smallmouth, white bass even (true! one time only). Throw on minnows too for variety, and you won't catch many suckers but can add crappies to the list.

Yeah, all those species are no lie!

All you have to do is go the the north landing on the ND side and go down river a whays to that first inlet where they are doing all that land scaping and net they like crazy after may 1. or go the nest inlet where all the cement is. They are just thick in the spring. Just keep checking after May1. I am not positive on ND side for May 1. but MN is May1.

Good luck I just might see you there.

      I would love to test these out. But until Hunting season is over I may be a bit tied up.  😟

      Launching a new line of utility ropes (paracord, diamond braid and MFD) and looking to get feedback on them. You get the the product for free in exchange for a review. It's simple; private message me what item you would like to try and where you would like it shipped to. Once you get it please assess the product and leave a review of that specific part number on Amazon or Wal-mart. I am looking for 20  people to test them out. A few samples below. I look forward to hearing from you.

      I know most of the bays have a couple inches of ice and guys are ice fishing. I would doubt the main lake is locked up but there could be some ice to deal with. Better off packing the boat away instead no huge warm up in site.
