Here's a great resource for ID'ing suckers and any other fish present in WI.

U can keep shortheads. Several ways of telling them apart, river rh exist in large river systems in wi and depending on how fragmented the river your fishing is, rivers are likely nonexistent in your system. Another way is size, river rh are HUGE compared to shortheads. Another way is to count scales around the caudal peduncal, without looking it up pretty sure river rh have many more scales around theirs. Basically, depending on the system your fishing, your catching 99.99% shortheads just because river rh don't exist in huge numbers like shortheads, goldens, silvers

Just a question, on the WI DNR website, river redhorse are a threatended, species, does this mean that shorthead redhorse can be kept? How can you tell the difference?

It won't be long, have to put away the short poles and pull out the long rods, time to hit the creeks and get the smoker lit.

Anybody having luck in central WI with sucker or red horse this year? I am having a difficult time figuring them out with the high water early on and wouldn't be surprised if they are done running. If anybody is willing to share information you can PM me. Thanks
