    Hey guys, I was wondering if you guys have had any luck finding sucker so far this season around the upper nuese around knightdale or anywhere else. I have been out several times and have had great luck finding schools of shad to stock up my freezer. Ive only ever caught one sucker in the cast net and I had bites within minutes of baiting him up when nothing would touch the shad, I cut the sucker into three pieces or so, landed one good striper and hooked up with a big cat. Ive been hoping to come across more but havent found any. Do they swim in schools like other baitfish, or do they cruise solo like some bluegill and other baitfish? I do bankfish so the area I can explore is limited. Thanks guys.
