Suckers 2018 in Musky, Tiger Musky & Pike (ESOX) Posted May 4, 2018 A number of years ago I caught a 50 inch musky on a sucker/quick strike rig while on vacation in Wisconsin. When I got home to NY I got all set for quick strike fishing on the St. Lawrence...only problem, no suckers. I even went to a bait shop on the Mohawk res past Massena. There isn't enough demand for them. All live bait has to be disease free, the only option is to catch your own. I gave up on it and went back to trolling.
