Carp/Sucker Pics From Last Week

5 posts in this topic

Hello everyone. I went fishing for a couple days last week and caught some carp and suckers. Here are the pictures.

The first two pictures are the bigger carp I caught.

This is the first sucker I've caught that looks like this, not sure of the exact species. Very interesting looking fish.

Yeppers... northern hogsucker! They have that dark ring around their mouth. They don't get a whole lot bigger than that either. Really cool fish!

Thanks for telling me the exact species.

Well the rod I use is a 7'6" Medium Heavy spinning rod. A decent sized spinning reel spooled with 12lb trilene big game line. The rig I use is a basic slip sinker rig, consisting of a 1/4-1/2oz egg sinker, bead, swivel, 6-12" fluorocarbon leader, and a number 6-8 sized octopus hook. For bait I use corn usually plain, or sweetened with a fruit flavoring. Sometimes I'll use boilies which also work very well. I'll use a hair rig if I remember to make some.

I love Carp fishing, so much fun.

    • I didn't have to because I framed with 2x3's and with inside wood on walls, siding, and heat shield on furnace I was close enough. It would be easy to put a little on the outside of the hose though. I'm a touch short but never caused me any problems. 
    • What kind of heaters are you guys running? Do you guys have to build your wall out if using a direct vent? Since most of them are for 4 1/2" walls.

    • Ya the Bush's think our current media is essential, the same media that tells lie after lie, focus mostly on ratings instead of news & of course colludes with politicians and government to cover up those dirty little secrets they don't want out. Not sure we have ever had a truly free press and people like Bush Family and the Clinton's just love it.

    • The fantasy is happening right now, the parties are already crumbling and people on both sides are flocking to outside candidates. This isn't some fluke, the parties are not going to straiten themselves out and suddenly get back supporters and clean up their acts. There time is at an end, who or what replaces them I don't know but change is in the air so I would try and embrace it.
