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.
