Couple of questions.

What is the average time frame of the sucker sale?

What is the average size of the fish?

dtro,

The main run usually starts around mid April, or as soon as they can get their nets in.

I would guess the average size to be around 1-3/4 to 2-1/4 pounds.

Thanks Cliff, hopefully I'll be able to make it up when the "run" is on. Any idea how long the sale normally lasts?

As promised here is my intention Click me

dtro,

The main run usually last around 10 days, maybe a bit longer.

I live right across the river from the hatchery and will post as soon as the sucker trapping starts.

DTRO,

There is a pretty good sucker run going now.

They sell them every morning, starting at around 7;30am. It is best to get there at around 7:00 to get your name on top of the list!

You should also be getting a lot more of the larger females now.

I can see the hatchery from my place and it appears that they are selling suckers again this morning.

I believe that they sell them every day until they quit running. The DNR has to empty their trap nets every day anyway.

The sucker run is done at the hatchery!

They had a very good take again. Around 4,000 pounds.

The walleye egg take was also a very good one. The DNR said they thought that last night may have been the peak of the spawning run. It went very fast once they started to run.

Still lots of very nice sized walleyes in the traps this afternoon. smile.gif

It is possible that there may still be a few walleyes in the traps yet on Thursday.

I have caught some nice walleyes and panfish on the Pike River flowage.

      Funny, my wife and I drove by Big Rice on our way to Grand Rapids. I pointed to the launch and said, somewhere there's an old rotting couch in there, two clowns 🤡🤡 on the forum keep joking each other about pissing on. She said gross! Cuz that's what guys talk about on forums! 😆😅🤣

      You can still fish Mille Lacs during the closure from July 1-15.  You just can't specifically target a walleye or use live bait.  There's plenty of smallmouth bass and pike in the lake that you can target with artificial lures and you might get lucky with a muskie.   The wind can be an issue out there though.  If that doesn't sound appealing to you, try the Rum River.  There is an access in Kathio State Park that would work well for a kayak.  You could go upstream and downstream from there too.   I think you will need to purchase a daily pass to use that access in the park (it might be like 5 bucks).  I haven't fished there in years but I fish the Rum River further downstream every season and the fishing in there is fantastic during midsummer.  Look for current breaks, seams, and deeper holes.

      Sorry I didn't see your post earlier. Glad your place was ok. Lake Country power said they had 20 poles toppled in one area!

      You still have your trailer and place up there? Maybe you should do some summer rentals of it to help pay the taxes and up keep on it? 👍

      The water is starting to slowly go down. From what I can tell it looks like it’s down about 5-6 inches. The wind was terrible over the weekend though. I’m sure many properties suffered damages with Sundays winds. Things are finally starting to head in the right direction but it’s going to take a very long time for things to get back to even somewhat normal.

      Stopped at VC last week as well.  Didn't have pizza, but the sandwiches and appetizers we had were good.  The service was very good.  However, that's the first and only time we had been there.
    • delcecchi
      Any other info about VC?   Got kid and and fam coming up.  Been a couple years but really liked it.   Reviews on line still good.   Did Mark just hit on a bad night or has it gone down?   Being on west not a place we go often.
