Michigan's smallest city - Omer, Michigan - is known for spring sucker fishing festivities. This community festival coincides with the spring sucker spawning runs, where suckers (such as the common White Sucker) migrate from Lake Huron into Michigan's inland tributaries. For generations people have gathered to fish for these fish. The fish, driven by water temperatures, decide the exact timing of these spawning runs, typically aligning with the first spring rains.
