NANFA-- Hog sucker
Fri, 22 Feb 2002 00:15:37 EST

Last summer I caught two hog suckers in a small creek called Turkey Fork.
Turkey Fork is near Ripley W.Va. Turkey Fork doesn't run year round and in
late summer is just a series of small pools. The hog suckers there are always
small, 8" or less. Does anyone know the breeding habits of hog suckers? How
big, how old, and where and how? It comes to mind because one of my hog
suckers came up missing tonight. I guess it must have jumped out of my 125. I
still have the smaller of the two and I found them to be a very interesting
fish with a lot of personality. Does anyone have any details about them?
after they lost their shyness they were always first for a meal of frozen
bloodworms or blackworms and only gave way to the elephantnose fish at meal
time. Ok so I like ugly fish!
