    Found a good spot with Suckers 4"-6"
    Now how do you catch them? The spot is not good for a cast net,but I have an umbrella net.
    Or I could use a fishin pole but don't know what to use for bait.....Need Help!
    Thanks Jeff :confused2:

    bigger than that, you can use salmon egg hooks and little pieces of doughball, or even crawlers. that size... good luck. them little "suckers" are usually too fast for a cast net. try a seine. keep it stationary, and have a bunch of people storm the creek towards the net and when they get close lift it up..

    I can only catch suckers in winter here, but I like to use a size 8-12 hook with a small piece of worm. I load my freezer and bait pond with them for Summer.
