How To Fish For Suckers With Rod And Reel?

Recommended Posts

Kind of went on a tangent asking this in a gigging related topic in general forum, but since it's most similar to carp out of the choices there are, I wanted to see just what kind of rigging and bait to use if I wanted to catch some suckers with rod and reel. Also been wondering if there's a way to substitute artificial lures, such as plastic worms or crawfish, for the real deal, while still having a reasonable chance of fooling them some of the time?

I've fooled a few using trout worms, real worms, and small jigs but it wasn't anything consistent at all. I wish I could catch more of them.

Today we used a night crawler on a number 1 circle hook, let half of them go and still have enough for breakfast tomorrow.

How in the world do you keep the panfish off your bait long enough for a sucker to find it?

I'm assuming they are talking clear water flows where the sucker inhabit the shallow mid river areas. The perch seem to avoid these areas, probably evolutionary insurance against herons. :D

Today's release is tomorrows gift to another fisherman.

We fished the fast water just below a shoal.
