Sean its a keeper if your fishing the south shore of Woods. If your fishing the Angle its bait. smile The angle is where the bigger saugers live.

Nice fish. That bottom one almost looks like a saugeye, either that or a very light colored sauger.

Herm Its name is blue pike, but doesn't mean its like the northern pike.

Jigglestick did the fish have a abnormally sized eye compared to a regular walleye/sauger?

Here is a pic of a blue pike

They look kind of similar.

And here is a walleye and sauger just to compare to the blue pike.

Honestly I think it looks like a blue, but there have been some walleyes thought to be blues that just had a bluish slime on them.

there was no blue tint what so ever to it.

the outfitter said it didn't look like any of the other walleyes that come of the lake he had ever seen.

the lack of white on the tail and the lack of spots on the dorsal have me scratching my head, thinking saugeye.

I did not check the eyeball, but I'd have to dig the carcass out of the garbage now.

I'm going with saugeye.

Still I caught a saugeye on pool 4 on friday. They still should have some white on the tip and the spots on the dorsal fin.

    • Nope.  It has been going on long enough to avoid that. 
    • Sous Vide... 😀 If not sous vide, then a dutch oven with a steamer thing. If it is too big for a dutch oven  with one of those folding steamer things then I would dig out my 18 quart roaster oven .  I think they even come with a rack.  
    • I think maybe Lund was too aggressive with the price increases in recent years of easy money or something.  When I bought my provee in 98, the difference between it and the comparable Alumacraft was only a few hundred bucks on a 20k package.   And the trim on the Lund looked nicer and more durable.     Some years later and I was at a boat show or something and the prices on ProVs had gone up and the difference was much more.      Presumably a deliberate decision to make ProV a premium product and insert a few other models  in there.   
    • Great call on the chuck, I'm still contemplating it, it sounds fun to give it a try though. At this point I'm leaning on pouring some smoke at it and trying a batch of pastrami,  just have to figure out a way to steam it in the end..
    • Minky, what lb test are you using?   I’m running 2 and 3 Micro Ice on pretty much everything I have for panfish.  I’ve been impressed with what it can handle along with its fish ability.  Pairing with the right rods helps a bunch too.
    • I had to do the same fix on my ‘Ol 96er.
    • Can you leave a propane tank on all summer or does that have to come off at the end of season
    • 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.
