2 posts in this topic

guts, my group is aware of new regulations. you are allowed 2 saugers with your 4 wallies. problem is, we never seem to catch saugeyes while wally fishing. what are patterns for saugers and do they tend to run in deeper h2o? thanks muraider

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

      Be cool if there was such a thing. Being people are getting so much more interest in pout it wouldn't be a bad thing I'd say.

      Thats what I thought.  But I am sure that is what the guy said

      I think some people are obligated to keep what they catch. Me I'll keep fish but not very often at least in the winter. (Not on Mille lacs) Mille lacs you have the chance at catching a trophy sure maybe it would be cool to keep it but for a lot of us letting a trophy go is as good as keeping it at least IMHO.

      Very disappointing for the resorts as well as anyone else with a financial interest in the lake.  Me?  I release 99% of what I catch anyways, so the rule doesn't affect me much at all....well, I suppose it means I'll have my favorite flats all to myself for at least one more year.  I just really, really wish they'd let us troll after dark in the fall.    Why walleye fishermen aren't more amenable to catch and release, especially on a lake like Mille Lacs that's been on fire for, what, three years now, is beyond me.  Who wouldn't want to go and catch dozens of fish a day even if you have to let them go?
