Just about to bring the bass boat out when I saw this big trash fish over on the other dock, so I snagged it with the tube, killed it and threw it in the trash. Update* turned out that that Sucker was actually a state record, that sucks that I didn't certify it.

      I'm just going off of what a fish and game officer told me, I'll do some more research but untill I learn for myself otherwise I see them as what I was told ...more by F&G, invasive

      I really hate the term trash fish, as a fishermen you should respect all catches because they ultimately effect your favorite fishes too, only truly invasive fish ...more should be removed and this is not one

      It is a large scale sucker I agree with you there but they are very native to the entire Northwest including Idaho. I think you need to do some research on them ...more but they certainly shouldn't be killed.

      This fish is native, not trash. Your confusing them with carp. Too bad you killed it

      I tried to eat em, can't be done and this species is actually invasive to this lake and, if I remember right, illegal to release @Mason_Cizek @TennesseeTroutboy ...more @hunter_nessen

      Theres no such thing as a "trash fish" i know people who eat carp and gar. Even someone who eats suckers. That couldve been someones next meal.
