I checked some creeks that run into the St.Louis the other day and didnt see any yet. It should start any time now that we got some rain and warm temps.

Like my Grandpa used to always say, The suckers run when the buds on the trees are the size of a mouses ear!!!!! I need to find a mouse and will get back to you on this one.

The suckers should be running any day now. The buds are the size of a small mouse ear but not quite the size of an average mouse ear. Sucker sale at the pike river hatchery.

The run seems to coincided with the two weeks before the Mn fishing opener. When I was younger, and if we were not catching any walleyes, which, by the way, is a rarity for me, we would go to the inlet or outlet at Pike Lake or the White Pine River and spear a few

As of last saturday they were starting to run up the midway river so im thinking after the rain and warm temps it should be in full swing next weekend.

I checked Miller Creek at the bottom of 24th Ave. West (Duluth)and nothing there. Miller has a big sucker run usually the first week in May.

Midway River runs midway between Duluth & Cloquet and flows into the St. Louis River near Jay Cooke Park. You can access at several bridges in the Esko area.

Ive never seen any around the bridges in esko. There is a big falls that they cant get over called sucker falls and there is a nice trail in esko to get to sucker falls. Its long trail but worth the hike when the suckers are there. Theres also some nice brook trout down there.

Find a creek running into the St. Louis and you will have a ball with the suckers.

You got that right... the crick near my house has produced mass numbers of suckers and eventually hits the st louis.. It's a very clear water creek and i used to see real nice walts and northerns in it when i was younger... I am out at school but bet a 100 bucks there are suckers all over it right now

      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. 
    • leech~~
      Nice video! Life jackets not needed in Yak's?  Just asking.

      Cigar guy, you got a good deal. They look like size 7 which is what I use the most for summer walleyes. Fleet Farm had all Rapalas 25% off last week so I stocked up.  I've used them a lot in the last 2-3 years.  If you fish them on rocks... you will lose some.  I try not to use them over the real bad snaggy stuff but sometimes I still do and usually end up losing one.  It takes a little practice, but they work well when you get it down.

      Funny, I first heard of this on LOTW also about 8-10 years ago.  They're tasty but honestly I often forget about doing it.

      Finally warm weather has arrived in Minnesota and I decided to hit the river for the first trip of the year in the Kayak. Felt good to be on open water after a very long winter. Even managed a few rough fish to get warmed up for the year!  Video: https://youtu.be/0gYDiOVH3As

      Spending some time in the turkey blind as it’s on solid ground. Had some jakes behind me but they don’t want to play. It’s okay as the have a free pass for now. In a couple weeks they will not have a free pass. If they would have come out I would have taken some photos. Lots for noise as everything is excited by the warm weather.
