Sucker-grabbing season opens March 15. To an Ozark angler, suckers are tasty fish with suction-cup mouths, and grabbing means snagging fish using an unbaited hook. If you’d like to give it a go, tie a heavy weight to your fishing line, then tie a large treble hook below that. Wrap the weight in bright duct tape so you can see it underwater. Cast the contraption into a school of suckers. When one swims between your weight and the hook, jerk the rod and hang on.
