Nice looking fish! I will definitely have to check that lake out. I used to fish Burnstick but I have not been back for many years.

It's a bright red tail! Especially in spawning time all fins are red (I will try to make a report with different pictures)
Yes we do have a Mountain whitefish, it is abundant, for example in Bow River. ...So no rush with cathing one  8)

haha. Well. I think those suckers are a good addition. In fact I think they take top spot from a kayak in Canada right now. Id say the White sucker might be a little smaller than one Russ snagged up last year but the red finned one looks like its the first I've seen so far. I will create a new thread for that species. Then add it. Any idea of its length? and thats a circle hook rig. What were you using for bait? Thanks bud

How the hell did you catch a sucker? I didn't think you COULD catch them without a net!

Just put a worm on the bottom of a deep pool or on the edge of fast and slow running water (in the river) and wait... I promise you will catch one!
My setup was a light sturgeon/walleye thing so the hook is kind of big and the leader is thick.  Use a light action rod and you will have lots of fun fighting them. If you have any more questions PM me.

Hi Mike! I thought you were headed to the Forks? How did you end up on the Red Deer? Which part of the Red Deer were you on?  We will have to hit the The Red Deer west of Innisfail. That is my favorite stretch after the melt water has passed through.
