Sucker, Northern Hog

First, I found some juvenile hogsuckers that were actively feeding. I was disappointed there weren’t any larger ones. However, any hogsucker is a good one. I then drove a few miles downstream and was very pleased with this upgrade: a sizable adult pugamoo with beautiful coloration. The deep, fast water made it difficult to catch, but it was well worth it. This is my favorite fish I caught that day (June 1st). Photo is probably the best I could do with a self timer

Wow, that big one has such beautiful camouflage markings! Never seen anything like it, but it makes sense since you've got different colored pebbles out there.

Yeah, all the rivers I've found them in have perfect pebbly/cobble areas. I love hogsuckers so much
