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.
