Smackin’ Sauger Report (4/15/07) (2 pics)

1 post in this topic

I couldn’t make the Walleye Warmup because I was on the streams trout fishing. I decided to hit pool 4 on Sunday thou looking for saugers and eyes. It was a decent day for us and certainly a nice day to be on the water.

We found wallyes and saugers stacked up in 17-23FOW. The saugers would absolutely smack your bait and the walleyes would merely just grab ahold and add weight. Minnows and plastics did best today for us. A 3” twister tail and a minnow got the most attention, but we caught fish on hair jigs as well. We never got a bite on ringworms, but didn’t put a lot of time in while using them. I’m not convinced color mattered, but we did best of brighter colors. Smaller fish seemed to be hitting right away in the morning, but once the sun warmed the water up a bit, larger fish became more common.

Our average size Sauger (16.5”)

      Thanks for the feedback friends, looks like about a $3,500 surgery and yes, the professionals say what you have all said that a second ACL injury happens often in the other hind leg as a result of over compensating....

      Here is the prize list for this years contest. Lots of food and drinks available at the contest also. Booya will again be sold on the ice provided by the Little Canada Fire Department.   My apologies, I cannot figure out why this will not present the correct way.   Fishing Prizes 2017.pdfFishing Prizes 2017.pdfFishing Prizes 2017.pdf

      The warm weather has opened up some cracks and you can watch the road operators earn their money.  New roads were popping up quickly and bridges were set and the day went off without a hitch.  Thanks for good quick work so we could all fish today. BTW....fishing is staying pretty solid.....Here is today's report

      Chuck was a real, authentic, honest to goodness good guy.  He loved being on the radio and you could tell.  Radio lost a friend.  RIP Chuck
