For those of us not in the know, which suckers are you referring to and where do they run?

The stone bridge 1/4 mile past hawks heading towards the west end, and
Moon bay which is the first creek past sand bay before snake island is full of suckers right now. Thier both deeper and faster than normal. When you first walk up to the creek you think theres none there, but walk along the side of the creek and you will see them dart out from underneath the banks. Nite time is a good time to go look w/flashlights.

We arrived on April 24th and they were running, by Monday 28th they were not as thick. We stopped and looked when we left on May 2nd and they were finished for the most part. we got 60 in about 40 minutes...took us 4 days to smoke them all!!!

We ended up getting some Saturday (May 3) and it looked like that was the end of it unless they start again - Saw about 1/2 dozen on Sunday
