Hook and Hunting: Sucker Fish Netting

Posted: Updated:

Spring is here, and so are the sucker fish.

One group in Traverse City came out to net these suckers, a dying hobby that they do once a year, every spring.

They netted the fish in Mitchell Creek in Traverse City.

One group "herds" the fish down the creek, where another group blocks the creek with nets, causing the sucker fish to swim right in.

It's a quick and easy way to catch hundreds of fish at one time.
