    Our guide said he thought June was the best, the other summer months a close second.

  7. That came from a well managed pond I bet with stunted largemouth, non-ideal spawning and hiding conditions for ‘gills like deep banks from get go and little cover and was fed pellets from an automated feeder 24/7. At least that’s my plan from what I’ve read. :D

    Sorry didn’t mean to hijack thread.

    You ever hear of Joe Everett? For years he lived on lake mission viejo in cali and was chasing the world record largemouth. Would fish every day during the spawn every year. Well when he got bored he would pick up a spinning rod and the blue hill and redear are just like the bass out there. Huge. Gills and ears that size pictured were normal. He’s a good friend. Unfortunately golden algae ruined the lake about 8 years ago.

    I have heard my dad and two of my uncles talk about a guy that caught a 3 1/2 pounder out of a lake on our old farm. I do know as a kid we caught a lot of big ones didn’t weigh them cause back then we ate them. Didn’t hear about records or seasons. We trapped/hunted/fished for food.

    Nice. I caught something years ago below the dam here. Not sure if it was a walleye or a sauger. I released it. It was probably 18” or so. Caught a bunch of little ones below spillway at taylorsville once as well. 6-8” range. Only ones I’ve ever caught. Never eaten one either.
     
  13. I’ve caught exactly one sauger ever on Kentucky Lake and believe it or not I caught it slow dragging a piece of night crawler for redear.

    That’s actually how a lot of people target walleye. I’ve caught one as well on a shakey head or ned rig on the deep north bank of Ledbetter by the golf course
