Muraider, I've caught sauger at nearly all depths on Kab.

They do seem to be slightly deeper then eyes, often times I've found perch and eyes in the same area. The best bait I know for sauger is minnows. Use jig and minnow, or if you prefer use a slip sinker rig and minnow. I've caught them on leeches, but not to often on crawlers. For some reason I've done well on saugers in Lost Bay.

I know several good jig fisherman that have done well over by the Martin Islands, fishing deeper and over off Headlight deeper.

Last year was a pretty good sauger year, the year before not so good. guts

      Went up to lake for week of fishing fished Adrian's  Morris point and Long point  6 days on lake. Fished Morris 3 days 18 ft of water west of resort. Did very well on good sized 16 to 18 in. walleyes. Slid out into 22 ft one day and did o.k. there too. Long point was just as good to me if not better fished 30 ft there. We had fish for a few meals and we brought our fish home. Didn't seem to matter what you had on. I used white glow  and pink glow.Sometimes minnow and bobber worked and sometimes jigging worked best. In my opinion fishing was good had no trouble catching fish.
