Welcome Sucka-Our newst Forum Guide Pro

Recommended Posts

Rick

I'd like to personally welcome Derek "The Sucka" as our newest Forum Guide Pro at Fishing Minnesota.

Here is a little about him:

He's always ready to get out on the water. He's a young buck going on his 25th year of fishing. As for patterning his fishing techniques he's only been doing that for about 13 years.

Rivers have always been his love. He makes a trip to lakes once in a while, but his true passion is in current.

The Mississippi and the St.Criox are such ancient and incredible fisherys that they attract most of his attention.

He loves to take people fishing and love it when people with him catch fish. He's always willing to give advise or listen to a tip relating to fishing.

He would like to spend some more time down on pools 3 and 4 and learn the fisherys there too.

His areas of proficiency lie on the Mississippi River between the Ford Dam to a little below downtown St.Paul and Marine to Kinnikinnic on the St. Croix River.

Derek will be here often to help all of us river buffs and share info along with our veteran Turk and Crappie Getter.

The Sucka really enjoys exchanging good fishing information to make those River Trips more enjoyable.

Welcome Sucka!!!

Goodfishin : )

Welcome aboard "The Sucka". I have been following your reports and it seems you know a thing or two about these rivers we all love!! I'm sure you will make a good addition as a moderator. Someday us moderators(and anyone else for that matter) should hook up on the river and wet a line. I have been talking to Turk a little bit about getting out but I have been busy hopefully sometime in Sept.

Good fishing to all!!

Welcome aboard Sucka! I will keep an eye out for you on the Croix. I don't get out there as often as I wish to anymore, but I really enjoy that awesome and diverse fishery so close to home. Quite honestly, I spend more time out there in the winter than the Summer. If you smell venison brats cooking over a propane heater, it's most likely me! Stop by for one!

Thank you all for the warm welcome mat! I hope I can help anyone catch fish as much as Crappie Getter and Turk have on the Croix.

I've seen some good posts from all of you that replied here. This really is a special forum to be a part of and I know it has helped me in my fishing as well as broadened my horizons on locations around the state.

Gem-Eye, you're the first person I've actually fished with from the boards here since I've started posting, thanx!

Rick, thanx for the bump, I'll try not to let you down! I have been trying to get out as much as possible just so I can come back home and report, heh heh!

See ya all on the water!!!!

      Pretty sure mine will be ready by the time the ice comes off our area lakes.... untill then, I hear the suckers are already starting to run
    • Rick G
      Was a good winter for sure. Had a blast and learned a few things fishing with you, Chris.

      We drive by the stripping station on Cutfoot weekly & try to keep people up on that too. I think it may be a bit later here, will check it out tomorrow

      Have a couple spots that are 10' open, I live on north side of Pike Bay, large rocks along shoreline helps heat water. Hard to see the ice condition on the Bay as there is a lot of slush on top, once that melts and the warm sun hits the ice it will go quick. Our new Chesapeake pup discovered she lives on a lake yesterday.

      Time to get the yak ready. Might need to paddle a couple spots on the sippi soon.

      Nice Crappie!

      Eyeguy and I made it out one last time yesterday. Access points are getting pretty bad in our area. Was finding roughly 2ft of  very chunky ice in the places we drilled holes. With the warm weather and bright sunahine we had, I'm guessing we lost a few inches through the day Fishing wasn't exactly fast and furious, we did get our fish... but really had to work for the quality.  The area we ended up finding our fish was a shallow 6-10ft dark bottom flat, close to where they will move come ice out.   It soon became apparent the fish we were targeting were almost swiming with their back right against the bottom of the ice, infact my two best crappies hit while my bait was only inches below my hole.  Baits we found better success with were the Northland slugbug and The Impulse Mayflies in bright colors. Jig size didn't seem to matter much due to the depth we were fishing. As I am typing this, my thoughts are already turning toward warmer days spent chasing smallies on the river. The boat and yak are soon to be ready, rods will be strung and so on. It was one heck of a long winter.... fished with some real good people from this site I had more good days than bad, got some monster fish locally... for these things I'm truly blesaed.... like I said,It's been a long winter....I'm glad it's over Pic is of my last big ice crappie for the season

      I will certainly keep you informed about the progress of the hatchery. I expect to see the nets and traps go in within the next two to three days. The run should be very strong as the fish are already moving into Pike Bay strongly. Cliff
