Fishing for Suckers in the Delaware
In the Delaware river, the sucker has larger
scales than those caught elsewhere. As a general rule,
the sucker is not esteemed highly as a table fish, nor
is there usually much sport in fishing them. They suck
in the bait, and nibble at the hook. They are not very
lively when pulled up and unless cooked immediately
their flesh grows soft. In my view, the sucker doesn't have a lot to recommend it!
