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”)

      The forum has do much more than fishing reports, hot bites, etc.  There's been more general and specific fishing  techniques, information and connecting with each other that has happened  here.     I can get hot bite information in a lot of places.  In fact many hot bites never do up on these forums.  Sounds like you've got a lot of information in a lot of places.   That's great!  Many of us have done the same thing.     Many of us have got together on the ice, in the woods or on the water because of.this forum.  That's what I've always enjoyed the most.     Hope to be able to keep doing that for a long time.

      Correct.  You can throw him a buck or two to keep the road graded and all is good.  At least that's my understanding.
