Me and my dad went to the Darby right when i got home from school. A surprise to me. the day started slow. Did see a big Buffalo carp off the bank (24 inches and 10 plus pounds, it was thick). my dad got a SM about 10 inches. i got a 8 1/2 inch rock bass and a 15 inch smallie. they were not hitting for the longest time. really had to find them today. the bigger smallie was my dads lol. he called me over to hold his other rod b/c he got it tangled on the first cast. he pointed out the fish. i told him that it was not a smallie, and that it was a BIG Northern Hog Sucker. but i looked at a the wrong fish, the smallie was 6 foot begind the sucker. so i casted to make the sucker move to prove my point lol and BAM the smallie hit. i felt real bad. it was his fish. i was holding 2 rods in hand so he went to get the hooks out. the fish kicked and set the hook right in my dads thumb. so he took his knife cut his thumb open and got the hook out it was cool lol. These Sucker were HUGE. biggest i have ever seen. i have heard of fly fishing for them but thought they were so small it would be no fun. but know that i have seen the Big ones i will fish for them. most were 15 plus inches but there were a couple 20 inches plus one looked like it was 30. CRAZY. they look alot like carp but after really looking at one, they were suckers. i want to catch one. they are bottom feeders (like carp) do ya think they would hit a live worm seeing how big they were. could not get them to hit anything though. they do spook easy. have any of you caught these? and if so how do they fight. another fish on must catch list. now its Gar, Sucker, and of couse Tarpon. well atleatsi can get Gar and Sucker here in ohio. Heres the Smallie i got.
