    Does anyone know a good saugeye bait for river fishing?
     
  2. twitertails are always good, I prefer white. I have also caught a few on tubes while fishing for smallies.
     

  3. Most guys use minnows.
     
  4. I usually use shad raps. Twistertails and sassy shads are really good. I have caught some on nightcrawlers too.

    Depends, from a boat or off the bank. Those heddon sonars...blade baits, can be killers from a boat along the lock walls of a dam.
    Off the bank, stick with jigs, the lightest you can get away with for conditions. Color will vary, funny there, you swouldn't think it would make a real difference, but flakes, etc. come into play.

    We wade by a dam seen people catch some. They arent the biggest in the GMR near the dam some guy caught a 7pounder.
     
  7. Husky Jerks, Rouges, Long A's, Reef Runners to name a few. I used to only use jigs but in the last 4 years i dont even take em with me. And fishing on the spots we fish on ill out fish guys in other boats thrownin jigs!
