Sucker or Shiner?

Recommended Posts

Me and my buddies are goin out tip up fishing tomorrow and we were wondering what would work better for muskies/pike, SUCKERS? SHINERS? If you have had any experiences with either of them please share them.

Both, but if there are some bigger pike use suckers. I have used both and like both. But Shiner some times the perch wont leave them alone and that gets old. But try both and see what the fish are hitting more. Good Luck

Where you heading???

We had already headed out for the day by the time i got your post, but we got both shiners and suckers anyways. We went out to Steiger in Victoria. We fished for maybe 2 hours 0 flags, tried suckers and shiners. We fished anywhere from 9-17ft dropped the aquaview down and didn't even see a sunfish.

Hmm, that sucks. Maybe try shallower. I've only been on that lake a few times going for bass in the summer. But I spoke to some locals that fish for pike a lot. They claim there are some nice pike in there. I know the weedline is rather shallow. Ton of milfoil in the summer.

Ya i fish it in the summer for bass too, some real hogs in there. I heard the winning fish last year for there annual ice fishing contest was an 18lb northern. Someone can correct me on that one if i'm wrong.

    • It's always fun to rig up your own custom stuff then paying a bunch of money for things that may not work as well.  Looks like it should do the trick for you!  🙂
    • Dude, do you know how to use the emoticons?  It's always good to use one of these when making a Joke!  🙂 😀 😅 😂  😉
    • All deer in SE MN need to be wiped out.  90% herd reduction isn't going to stop the disease.  It is wreckless and stupid to do any less.  The whole state herd is going to go in the toilet if the SE guys don't get on the triggers and get their situation under control.  This talk of us vs the deer farms is a stupid smokescreen designed to try to take the focus off private land owners that don't want to cooperate with the mitigation plan.       Anything less will set the stage for CWD to roll hard to the north and get into the big woods where there will be zero chance of ever finding every deer.   
    • Gettin er done.    I have to take the "T" that the transducer pipe goes through to work so I can open the ID so the pipe can slide freely. 
    • I have a couple Garmin units for my boat. I'm going to also use one for ice fishing. Got it powered up and started playing with the colors schemes I'd like to use. The only one I like so far is with a blue background. But what I found that I like better is the black background the humminbird uses. Maybe Garmin could do an update to add a black mode. Lol. 
    • How do you keep those solid whole covers from freezing over the hole?
    • The ant moat idea seems interesting.  Go to a second had store or a Goodwill type of place and see if you can find a Bundt pan.  Use that and see how things work out.  
    • Could you be a little more specific on this cocktail timing deal? Size matters! 😏  
    • I have been doing whole prime rib on a weber grill since I was 20 years old and they cost 2.99 lb at the long ago defunct Country Club Market in St. Paul. I put the coals on each side for indirect heat and add salt and pepper and garlic. For the garlic I put the fat side up and take a knife and put holes into the fat down to meat. In each hole I put a garlic clove. I don't add any pellets or wood chips for smoke. I just want to taste that beef cooked in owns fat with a few spices but go ahead and add some smoke to it if that is what you want.
    • The storm last weekend  has moved the birds into the heavy duty winter cover. We had pretty good hunting in the cattails the last couple of days. Perfect weather helped.
