    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.

    Three of us managed 19 sauger, walleye, and one crappie at Greenup lock. Most were caught on pearl and chartreuse 3 inch Charlie Brewer slider paddle tails. It was a good day 20201206_165420_resize_89.jpg

    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.
     
  7. 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

    We've caught hundreds of sauger on Ky by trolling. Now this was 20-25 plus years ago. The muscle boats started dragging the same areas and the sauger fishing went to hell. Don't know if there's a correlation but sauger fishing has never been the same. Son caught a 17" sauger past summer, crank bait on a 7' flat next to main channel.

    Yeah I have no idea what the population is like anymore but I also don’t know anyone who targets them either

    You ever catch a yellow perch there? I caught one on a crappie jig at the marina in blood river

    Very nice haul! Do you fry all yours or have a variety of ways to cook it?

    Son will catch a couple each summer off our dock. 4-5" long on small minnows.
