The Saugers were hitting good by Prescott last night. I was out between 5pm and 7pm Monday night and caught about 20 Saugers and Walleyes. All of the Walleyes were small to very small as was the case for many of the Saugers. Ended up keeping 6 Saugers from 15" to 18". First time I have taken home a limit so this was a very good night for me. The fish were in 25' and hitting on jig/minnow or 3way with plain hook/minnow. I tried running 2 lines but only caught fish on the pole that was actually jigging. I seemed that if you were not actively jigging you were not catching fish. A big thanks to all that have given tips on catching Walleyes, because if it were not for you I would not have tried some of these techniques.

I had a similar experience on Sunday night, lots of dinks, I had 7 all eyes and none over 14. I got a couple on my stinger. I am wondering if anyone has preferences of stingers and how they like to rig them. Just using a jig we where losing all of our bait. So we tried rigging with stingers, DO you like to hook the stinger into the bait? Top or bottom? Hopefully getting back on the water this weekend.

I tried Sunday morning and got several walleyes shy of 15 inches. In a way, no fish fry, but it was fun catching them.

      If you haven't read it yet, a couple of slobs are about to ruin it for the rest of us. Pick up your garbage and respect private property. The land owners who allow access to the lower sucker river are about to shut it down because they are so fed up with it. http://minnesotasteelheader.blogspot.com

      With the wind being fairly strong today I opted to hit the back waters of Little Rock. Have done goid there in yrs past.... so I figured it would be worth a shot. Finding crappies was pretty easy, they were holding tight to the brush and downed trees. Finding crappies over 8inches was tough...lol.  I don't think I broke 9inches. But did manage one big carp. Guessing right around 30in, pulled me and the yak all over the lake before I got it boat side

      Hit the one down by Watkins a couple times this winter. There were a lot of people that fished it this last winter. Got gills and crappies of all different sizes. If your looking for keeper size fish, other area lakes will provide better numbers. Haven't been on the other one of  in a few yrs. There were good numbers of 6-7in sunfish if I remember right.
