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.
