Getting rid of them
Sun Dec 31, 2017 8:12am

snakes is almost a lost cause. They prefer shallower water than trout plus warmer water temps. The only fish that keeps them in check are Musky's. Northern's like to spawn in shallow streams as soon as the ice goes out. The poachers go after them using lights and spears after dark .....very effective. Their eyes glow like little head lights in the dark. On the good side they are almost as good eating as walleyes are. Learn how to filet them though because of the Y bones, also excellent boiled as they have a somewhat texture and taste like Lobster. They are pretty easy to catch, all you need is something flashy like spoons chrome and red works good.

          are suckers in the rivers that will be most of their diet as they are slower and don't have dorsal fins on top. Get a fozen smelt and a Swedish hook, put on a set line after dark ....... this works.

            We do have suckers throughout the the river system. Smelt do run up the river but not past any dams. Huge shad runs which come into the river system to spawn. Some will pass the few of the lower... more
