Any guesses when this will start this year. With ice out coming soon, I've gotta have something to look forward to. grin.gif

I'm also looking forward to the old sucker run. I made it out only twice last year and plan to do it a bit more this year.

I say we should be fishing suckers on April 5th

Once the new green shoots of grass poke through the old dead grass along the river bank about two inches. That's what usually signals to me anyway. confused.gif

We should pick a day for an informal gtg. Maybe some dogs, some brews, and a stretch of shore?

I think an informal GTG would be a great time.

Sat, April 14th?

I got in on it a bit last year. Definately a fun time. Could probably even do a evening GTG. Here's one from last year.

Nice Silver Redhorse! Those fish are a blast, and Southeast MN is home to the best Silver runs in the nation. I can't wait to get into them this spring! We have an annual weekend get-together during the sucker runs down on the Root, and it's a blast. ~hogsucker

      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

      Thanks Cliff for your Pike River deteriorating ice reports and pics . I. Really want to show my wife the hatchery when the action is really happening this year , I would assume you will be right on that when this happens , is there any way that you can give a shout out on here as to just when this scenario is happening up there . With the warmer temps being quite steady now , I would think the run will be rather strong this year when things get going ..

      I got the 4 smaller ones the other day. They are a little over 2" long and paid only $6.64 total to my door.  The quality seem pretty good, we shall see once I put them to some use!

      Thanks Leech! Ya you need a life jacket in a kayak. I have mine behind my seat, but Yes I should be wearing it.
