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”)
