hey lewdog is it possible for me to fish a time or two with you this year? I noticed that we fish a lot of the waters, only you have wayyy more better days than me...I'm a shore fishermen at the moment, but if you have a boat, I'm down to split the days cost

Dang all you fishin buddies up there! Where's all the fisherman in the southwest lol! Call me the ole lone ranger... haha are river suckers more of a bait fish? If so send a few my way I could really use some good fresh baits. Can't buy a sucker down here anywhere unless your fishin with tootsie pops.

Hey catcherman i haven't caught one yet but my understanding is they are like carp. Try using a different bait. Suckers are just the " preferred by fisherman " bait you can use bluegill or carp or even perch as bait. That blugill meat is one of my favorite goto baits. Just a little hunk will do. Or if you are around Navajo put a whole live blugill on a big bobber n chuck it as pike bait.
