Last Thursday the sauger were hitting pretty well. I got mine on hair with meat, but I saw guys doing quite well on plastic as well. Blades were working for others. Guys are saying they are not suicidal yet, but the bite was pretty good.

Judging from the guys in the fish cleaning shack & the pails of entrails at Everts, the sauger fishing is pretty darn good down there right now. I was actually down there last night but we were targeting channel cats, and accidentally catching mud puppies. Weird!

Got on the water at about 11 am. on Sat. and headed up to the dam to rub paint with all the boats. My brother-in-law got a nice 16" sauger right away then nothing for a couple hours. Saw quite a few fish being caught then it slowed down. So we moved away from the crowd and marked fish in 17 feet of water. The key was not to move at all and get vertical. Pink or Chartruse hair jigs in 15-25 feet of water. We got into a few more and boated about 10 saugers and a couple eyes with 1 eye 18" and 1 sauger 20". Kept 7 for the table between 16-20". Not a bad day on the river.

When you guys are using hair, what size are you using to keep it vertical? 1/4, 3/8???

The wind was blowing down stream on Saturday. It took a 3/8 after sun up to stay vertical. If you had the anchor down (Which 37 people did) a 1/4 would do the trick. The fish were sitting in 3 spots on Saturday. You had to be willing to run paint in order to get at them. It was an ok bite but sure not what we are used to this time of year.
