#5 or #7 Shad Raps Deep Divers in Baby Bass, and Clown for me. Baby Bass has a green top and a white bottom so it coincides with what was working for Kaz. Baby Bass is pretty much my favorite since I tried it a couple of years ago.

I have had great success with Rattiling Glass Raps this year. We tried one earlier this summer and had such good results we bought more and never took them off!! #7 for size and colors were green and the shad color. We used a purple too. I really like the way they run through the water smile.gif

      I catch saugers in rivers or in lakes with large river tributaries - they seem to be more of a river fish. Given there aren't big feeder rivers into V, i'm not surprised by lack of saugers. I've never caught one in V, nor have i heard of anyone.

      From the MN DNR-   The walleye is native to most of Minnesota, flourishing in large, shallow, windswept lakes with gravel shoals, such as Mille Lacs, Leech, Winnibigoshish, Upper and Lower Red Lake, Lake of the Woods and Lake Vermilion. It is also native to many smaller lakes and steams in all of Minnesota's major drainages. Because of its popularity as a game and food fish, the walleye was introduced to many other lakes, where it has become established. The walleye now occupies about 1,700 lakes totaling 2 million acres and 100 warm-water streams totaling 3,000 miles.

      As far as I know walleyes are native to almost every lake that they are found in up north. Cliff
