JAX FOCO has waterdogs and live suckers

Just in JAX Fort Collins and they had live suckers so you can have fresh frozen above 7000' and waterdogs for pike!

Excuse my ignorance here, but I have never tried fishing with suckers (although I would like to try for lake trout this year). Are you talking about using them alive like minnows? How big are they? Or if you mean to freeze them to use them above 7000' does it make much of a difference if they are fresh frozen or have been frozen for a long time?

Fresh frozen are better. I don't know if they taste any better to the fish but fresh sucker sticks together better and it stays on your hook better. Stuff from previous years that I've used in the past usually falls apart more when you try and get it on the hook as opposed to some fresh from this season. The problem with buying Sucker from places like Cabelas is you really don't know if it was from last year or not where if you buy fresh ones that are live and freeze them yourself you know how old they are.

Jax has always had those. All the jax locations have them. the others you just have to ask for them as their tanks are in the back of the store.
