RE:Sky Morning Blues

Just an unscientific observation on suckers. I have fished at least twice a week since Jan. 1 and had no run-ins with suckers. In the last three times out, I have landed three. I have noticed that as the water temps have slowly climbed (41 this morning) and the daylight hours lengthen, the algae growth has taken off. My hypothesis is that the suckers have either 1) come out of a winter hibernation in the deeper holes or 2)moved out of the snohomish up into the Sky to feed on this increased growth. Curious to see if anyone has any thoughts on this.

On the bright side, at least I know my tip is getting me deep enough.
