Been perfecting a new "summer" technique for s-eye the past couple years and it payed off bigtime tonight! Probably got 12+ keepers in the 15-19 range, then the big girls came on right at dark, a 21"22" and 23" in about an hours time, picked up a few smallies in the 14-16" range too. Saugeye were "hyper aggressive" absolutely drilling crankbaits on the pause. A steady retrieve with a 2 second pause every now-and-then is what produced the most strikes. No twitching/jerking, just reeling slow and steady, then stop, pause - and BLAM!:D

Almost went there tonight but that hole is always hit or miss.

Also forgot to mention that I had a S-eye drill a crank literally the second it hit the water. Didn't even have time to reel in the slack so I could start my retrieve!

Great report,yep the eyes were busy this week 3 trips 29 eyes 7 smallmouths. Largest just shy of 23" we got a couple 22" twins the one night back to back. Was out friday night and the flat heads were real busy 3 of them between 2 of us on swims and cranks. Water almost to clear right now was amazed at how she has cleared up. Had a mama on mid-week push 25" plus but tore off by shore. A.J. had one mid-week that did same thing i swear crank never hit the water she was the 23" one hiding in a corner just waiting for it!!:) Should be a great week coming up!! Smallies are real busy but so are the largemouth. Good fishing!! Oh yeah getting some good size hybrids as well they are crushing the swims.

Got out last night again, same deal. A bunch of jacks up until dusk, then caught some nice females (21",22"). Still attribute alot of my success to the presentation along with a perfectly-tuned suspending crank. For whatever reason they don't seen to want it twitched/jerked, I mean that was working for a few other guys but the slow roll & stop/pause technique was just killing 'em

Nice bunch of fish man! I have been out in the rivers a couple times this past week at night and have been killing the smallmouth but can't quite figure out the eyes. I guess I don't know where and what to use for them this time of year in the river. Guess I should start with crankbaits!
