RBH, You can try Menomonee River by Miller Pork. They do come up there but I don't know if they are there now.

If anyone is willing to help me out, please PM me. Are there any rivers/ streams around Menomonee falls that I can find suckers?

A report from Price County Wisconsin, the redhorse are running well on the North Fork Flambeau River. These fish run earlier than those in the South Fork Flambeau, so more action is on its way. The currents are strong so be prepared to cast at least an ounce of weight. We still have plenty of ice on most inland lakes so walleye fishing opening weekend may be limited to rivers and systems with flowing water. Im keeping my fingers crossed. Good luck fishing

Have him use a basic hook and sinker on bottom with a piece of crawler. Usually best if the sinker is heavy enough to keep the bait in position. Hooks should be small-medium-ish - maybe size 4 or 6. Don't use a whole crawler - I usually break them into thirds but even smaller works.

Any rod works but I like lighter gear - 6lb mono and trout/panfish/light walleye rods. Better for seeing bites and more fun to catch them.

Fish pools and current breaks near riffles or dams. I don't fish that part of the state but basically all rivers around there should at least have White Suckers. Any river connected to the fox/bago system should be fine, fishing creeks just downstream of "designated trout water" is usually good.

In that neck of the woods there are River Redhorse (protected) so if you catch any large suckers (20" or more) with red tails make sure and release them as the fines can be steep.

Have fun!

My 11 year old son is a fishing nut! I would love to take him sucker fishing this upcoming weekend (4/26/14) and be able to take some suckers home for smoking and pickling. Where can I take him around the Appleton area and what would I have him use? I probably won't fish but then again who knows. Just want him to have a good time and be able to keep his catch. Any advise would be appreciated!

The vast majority are catching White Suckers. They run first, are really widespread and abundant. Places off the Great Lakes get Longnose Sucker runs too. They are abundant but not really found outside the Great Lakes.

As far as ID goes if you fish the Mississippi, St Croix, or lower Chippewa and Lower WI then you need to be careful.

Otherwise all you really need to know is that you don't have a River Redhorse. Like I said River Redhorse have bright red tail fins and an average one is 20"-25".

So release any big red-tailed suckers and you should be fine.
