    I sure miss those fish! Haven't seen on in at least 4 years. We used to fish them in Minnesota up around Redwing when they would run around November. Those were some of the biggest I've caught. Most saugers I've seen would be good to go if they were 15", these suckers were 15" at the smallest.

    We fish for them in the summer every once in a while, they are hard to get onto. on the ohio river we try and find rock ledges 20-30 feet deep. There is a big island here by my house that they sometimes stack up in front of in the summer but i mainly do it in the spring and fall and stick to catfish in the summer.
