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.

Its funny the bait shops carry them in the winter months for ice fishing but not as readily during the open water seasons. Suckers are a great bait becuse they are so hearty.

I should imagine they are still running in some streams up that way because the water temps are still quite a ways behind schedule so wherever they can be taken legally is the way I'd be going just cull the smallest mixed with the spawners:)
