Sucker Report (3/12) - 5 pics

Recommended Posts

This past Wed I had the opportunity to soak a few crawlers down on the river with a few buddies. It ended up being a good day even thou the bite was slower than normal.

I Started the morning with a willow cat, followed by a black bullhead. Next to bat were the redhorse where I ended with about 6 goldens, 1 silver, and 1 shorthead. I also caught a white sucker and a carp. Perch and gills finished out the morning.

All in all it was a good multi-species day.

White Sucker (small scales)


Silver Redhorse (Convex dorsal fin & large fleshy mouth)


Shorthead Redhorse (red tail & very small mouth)


Golden Redhorse (smallish mouth & convex dorsal fin)


Carp (large scales and whiskers)


All fish were caught with a 1/2 crawler on the bottom. The bite was extremely light with many bumps and drops. Probably hooked 30% of the bites which is unusual.

The river was good on that particular day. I heard it was fast and high over the weekend, but it might be OK again now. The sucker fishin will only get better as the water warms, and I suspect the panfish and bass(season closed) will move in too. Once the pannies and bass thick I usually move to a different spot.

I never broke off, but there are snags around there. Lots of rocks and some wood.

PS. The dark pics and daylight pics "might" be taken at different locations??..
