Identify the sucker please.

Recommended Posts

My buddy caught this big sucker out of Lake George around ice out. Anyone know what kind of fish it is, as far as I know white suckers don't grow anywhere near that big so is it a hybrid or something? Thanks in advance.

Specifically it's probably a River Redhorse or a Greater Redhorse.

 

The redhorses are good to eat, but very bony.

 

The meat from commercially-caught redhorses has sometimes been marketed as "mullet".

With that broad body and what appears to be a red tinge on the lower and tail fins, I'd echo the guys who said Redhorse Sucker too.

 

Down here there is a River Redhorse that resides in the lower Grand River.

I thought mullets were only found in the Peterborough area, and isolated parts of Hamilton??? hahahahahaah... jk, born and raised in the hammer.
