Saugers, where are they found?

Recommended Posts

The only place that I have ever caught Saugers, were in the Mississippi River or LOTW. Where else have you caught them, in any numbers?

Missouri River! They are primarily a river species but they do live in some lakes that have a river flowing through them. .

In South Dakota, saugeyes are commonly stocked in most lakes.

Same place for me, Drayton dam on the Red River. When they start biting during spawning season it's a blast. White mister twister tails were the key.

Yepper there are gobs of them in the Red, they run on the small side with a good one every ten or twelve or 20 or so. Good fall run of em too when they're behind them Emeralds. Bigieroth as for taste......The Red is a way turbid/muddy river and both the Walleyes and Saugers out of there have a rather different taste than the fish out of the LOTW thats for sure. Out of the LOTW most folks can't tell an eye from a saug once fried nice and golden.

As for the taste of them from the Red I don't remember what they tasted like, but I have swam in the Red once before. You feel like you're swimming in an overclorinated pool with all the farm chemicals that are in their. That might explain my third arm......

rainy lake has a healthy population of saugers there are also quite a few saugeyes a hybrid walleye sauger species. the sauger and saugeye are usually smaller and slimmer with blotchs of silver and black. the sauger doesn't have the white spot at the bottom tip of the tail that the walleye has. as far as were the can be caught, in my experience they like current but anywere walleyes are there is a chance of saugers as well.

I'll second Ebiz' reply. You'll find lots of saugers just up from the Prescott bridge on the Wisconsin side.

    • Used the impulse mayflys today, the fish were not biting well. I ended up catching a few nice gills on the mayflys but more fish with  the demon/ waxie combo. I want to try some lighter line with the horizontal jig /impulse mayfly and see what happens. Maybe 5 years ago I moved away from winter panfish fishing. I am so glad I am back catching panfish, a very enjoyable way to pass a winter morning!
    • 13 years ago I had my heart set on a Lund, I went with an Alumacraft because I could rig it out nicer with the money I was allotted by my better half at the time..........no regrets.
    • Ive owned 7 Lunds and don't see another one in the future.  Also been looking at the A-crafts.  The 205 trophy.  Have a 13' Lund Tyee 1800 now.  Good boat but its too light for big water.  Really like the fit and finish of the Aluma's.  The black windshield trim is sharp and the carpet on the top of the gunwale is also nice.  Really impressed.  Not gonna take out a mortgage to buy a glass boat either.
    • I’ve never done anything with mine. I store it standing up and in the fall change the oil if I remember. Haven’t had any issues yet. 
    • I had problems with my 02. I found that the plug on the truck side going to the plug at the bumper was corroded. I hope that made sense I cleaned it up and put dielectric grease on it.    
    • I would put some Seafoam in the ga.........................  oh never mind. 😁
    • I rode the trails around big lake today, mostly to get used to the new trails. trails were awesome, they must have groomed last night, rode to becker and back and some other playing around. all in all I put on 42 miles today. I will ride into the orrock area tomorrow. don't ride that much around here anymore, mostly aitkin co. now. looks like the trails around the sand dunes look good, I will give it a shot tomorrow.
    • I'm guessing not much. I know the one pounders threads can start to rust in a humid environment, but am not sure if that would be an issue if still attached? I know nothing about propane augers,  is there an oil tank to keep the engine lubed? And if so, does it need to be refreshed or drained every once in a while? It's not like you need to worry about bad gas gumming up the system.   Mostly,  I'm just replying to give you something to read TJ. Hopefully somebody else will chime in with more knowledge.  
    • Possibility of moisture getting into them after washing the stove top and around the burners? My wife is good at that.
    • I get it, like the woman in the commercial. You are clever.
