    Me my dad and micro went and waded the Darby today. Got in the water at 7:00, got done at 2. I got 10 fish, 8 SM and 2 Rock bass. The biggest SM being 13inches. My dad got 8 fish, 4 Sm, 1 Sauger (12inches), Shinner(7-8 inches) lol, Rock bass and sunfish. Micro got 5 fish, 3 rock bass and 2 SM. We think it was a Sauger it had a white mark on its bottom tip of the tail. Most SM were in the 9-11inch range.

    Micro will post the pics.

    I think they tell by the top fin, if it has spots sauger, if not saugeye, IF I remember right that is,lol.

    If a white tip is present, it is always a saugeye.

    I could be wrong, but I think he meant white tip, not a sauger...

    It was a sauger. I looked it up. To many things lead to sauger, and sauger do have white on the bottom on their tail fin.

    hey now! ;)

    I just thought that all of the various saug* fish could have some white in that spot in their tails :D

    For clarification purposes lets just call them all "Long toothy critters" and Be done with it.

    Or walleye. Bottom line is that you cannot be sure identifying percids in the field. White tip indicates a walleye phenotype.

    I'm almost afraid to ask this...but, how are saugeye getting into the Darby???

    Thats another reason why im thinking Sauger. S-eyes do not reproduce. And who would be stocking the Darby with them. Dont think the DNR is.

    A odd think is that, that is the first one we got out of that spot this year. Last year we caught allot of them.
     
  15. The Darby is connected to the Scioto so they can find there way in from there couldnt they??? maybe not in very large numbers though.

    Bubba, saugeye can reproduce with either of their pure parents.

    The "water's" getting too muddy for my taste.

    Percids are highly migratory.
