I took my cousin out carp fishing on the LMR a few weeks ago. I haven't spent much time targeting carp on the LMR so I didn't know what to expect. Using oat pack bait, he landed to redhorse suckers and a smallmouth buffalo.
I also caught a few redhorse suckers on a carp trip in the upper section of Dale Hollow back in April.

Yep. I've caught redhorse and white suckers before, mostly redhorses though. I have accidentally foul hooked quillbacks also, never actually caught any though. Btw even though they all look somewhat like a carp, they are native. Some(all maybe?) species of redhorses actually are an indicator of good water quality.
