It was a cold and rainy day on the Root River. Andy and I ventured out to connect with our first suckers of the season. None were spawning, although one shorthead had tubercules and some white suckers were squirting milt. We caught a lot of shorthead redhorse, including some sizeable ones, white suckers, northern hog suckers, and beefy smallmouth bass.
Oh, and one black redhorse.
Oh what a feeling. What a great way to start the year!
