Sucker through the ice

Fished Evergreen from 11am-1:30pm yesterday before the wind picked up. There were about 7 other fisherman out on the lake, and the ice was about 13Ē where I was at and making lots of noise. I was fishing in about 10 feet of water deadsticking with red salmon eggs. Only caught 1 white sucker that must have came in through the creek (released right after a quick pic). I did not notice anyone else pulling much through the ice. I did see some people fishing at the inlet which I never recommend. Also saw some kids trying to break through the ice which I also never recommend (even with 13Ē of ice). Stay safe and on the dry side everyone!

Thats a cool catch! Did it fight well? I keep trying to get one thru the ice but cant make it happen. From shore, easy.

Yo DJ, you just threw $5.99 down your hole. Those things are more prized to me than the coveted RBT for sure. Nice catch!

I just spent $18 on half that much bait... Nice catch for sure!

It's funny spring time those guys get thrown up on the banks because people think they're a trash fish. In the winter though people pay good moneys for them for bait. Funny how that works. Kool catch man
