Redhorse sucker?

Catching them left and right up to 5lbs. I’m thinking spawn colors of white sucker. North central Mn.

Pretty fish. The Game and Fish should have some ID for it.

I agree with White Sucker

15-May-22
They’re grabbing jigs??

Interesting. I probably missed out on some good action. I do recall catching nose, but I don’t recall what they are called. Right now I’m trying to remember if I’ve caught them out here in the east. I do know that I never got into any that were anywhere close to 5 pounds, though…

In any case, pretty sure they’re native and not something that needs to be got rid of.

Hey Dana there’s one born every minute!

CORRECTION- I used to catch lots of river red horse suckers (a more northern species, not the long nose variety) in the spring when I was a boy, and according to my long gone father and grandfather, they're the best suckers to eat (when the water is cold).

Could be long nose but the DNR doesn’t list them as being in the lake/river.

Longnose and White are very similar. The heavier scaling makes me think White.

From: Lucas

Spawning White sucker. Longnose have fine scales. 5 pounds is a good one!

Thanks for the input, from all. I was just wondering as have not witnessed such brilliant spawning coloration in the white sucker before. The photo doesn’t even do it Justice. Most are in the 2lb range but have caught a few pushing 4-5 LBs. Look like great Musky bait!

Definitely White Sucker in spawning array.

The Mn DNR says there are short nose red horse and white sucker in Otter tail lake. I seen color phased sucker like those swimming by the river access last weekend.

We didn’t catch any suckers but did well on the walleyes.

Cool looking fish.

Rainbow Trout with Botax. ;0)))

Trout bait thief is what it is. No suckers in the lakes around here. Only in the rivers.

16-May-22
I guess that’s what you get for fishing for trout with bait!

LOL

I caught a sucker on a trot line once using a crawdad meant for catfish.
