Smallest City Hosts Big Fun!

Omer Sucker Festival 2011

Posted

Nets were lowered into the Rifle River starting at 12 a.m. Firday, April 1 to kick off Omer's annual Sucker Festival. Locals and fisherman from around Michigan gathered throughout the weekend to catch sucker fish.

"They're real bony, but they taste good," said Shad Garner of Hortonville as he cleaned and prepared some of his catch by the river.

This year's event showed a shift toward more family friendly activities, with a new children's fishing contest and age appropriate prizes for each of the four age categories.

In the end, said Sue Oliver of Omer, who helped organize the event, "we just hope everyone who came out had a good time."
