Hope you catch this message before you go out. The fishing for saugers and eyes is still there, but not the size. Fish has been around the 10"-13". There are schools of eyes around like three or four in a group which are 15"+ and who knows there might be even more in that school (I shorefish). Where I fish there are a lot of schools of baitfish. My friend and I nailed three walleyes (15 3/4", 17", 21") in and around wood structure with artificial jigs. The eyes were just swimming underneath the baitfish school I assume. Tips are: use visible underwater color choices and especially natural colors, keep the lure right in the strikezone, and use steady retrieves or jigging techniques. For a little extra kick, try adding some sent in your bait. It works.
