I don't think it is a blue but then I'm not sure what it is.

The few blues I have seen pictures of definitely have a blue hue to them.

Found this on another forum, evidently caught recently in Richardson Lake, Canada. Could just be a regular walleye with a really pronounced blue hue though.

Had to ask being that I just like eating smile walleye. What is this? It had a tiny dorsal fin, very little white along the tail and also not a spot on the tail or anywhere else. The eye was the size of a 50 cent piece.

27x13.5 keep in mind I'm almost 6'4 270 I seem to make fish look small frown

After looking at all the pics posted earlier in this thread I would have to agree that it is a sauger. It has been so long since I caught one that I thought this one with the black on it was different then the ones I remember catching up at LOTW.

I must not catch enough Sauger to know any better. But what makes that a Saugeye? I woulda just called it a Sauger. Nice fish by the way!

Here is a small one I caught yesterday on pool 2. Small but I thought the very black tint was interesting. Darkest one I ever caught. Looked solid black when I brought it out of the water.

I think you are correct it is a saugeye. I was thinking it was a very dark sauger but the gold color and a little white on the tail says it all. First saugeye I have caught. Will have to pay more attention in the future.

Thanks

You never know, that could be a full on state record sauger! Whatever it is, it's a nice one.

I dont know of course but from looking at the pic it looks like a walleye or maybe saugeye more than a true sauger but thats just from looking at a pic on the computer.

I think Captain Fireman was pretty sure it was a Saugeye as it had a white tip on the tail.

You really never know though until you take DNA samples. I read an article from out West somewhere about a huge Walleye that later turned out to be a Saugeye after the DNR did some testing, and is the now the current record. Can’t tell at all by looking at the picture that is was a saugeye. It looked just like a walleye.

It was a saugeye, no DNA test needed and it was CPRed
