Sauger Action @ St Andrew's Locks

Recommended Posts

Guest

Moderate catches of sauger were reported to me by my business associate this week. Wallaye have been slow. The river seems to be in its winter slumber period. On Wednesday and Thursday this week my associate and a client had some reasonable luck with Sauger below the St. Andrews locks (Lockport). The pattern evolved over two days; A 1/4oz. chartreuse jig tipped (more so skewered)with a large salted shiner (available at the bait shop in Selkirk). I was told that the bait had to skewered as those little devils could steal your bait (or car if you had given them a chance)with such alacrity you'd often be fishing with no bait! The best action imparted to the jig was either very erratic or the other end of the spectrum --dead stick! Location also seemed significant. Fish seemed to have set up in and around the washout (he fished the western extremity of it in 11ft.) a hole/hump created by water moving through the locks. I'll not going out to the Red this weekend as I'll be going to do some work locally: Perch on a local honey hole. However,for all those guys thinking about the Red, I would suggest that in three weeks (or so) the big ol' gals ('eyes) should start moving/biting with a little more frequency. Tightlines, Dan.
