  1. Had my Dad out at Salt Fork on Wednesday.Found a lot of baitfish but not much else.He did get one:B that was only 25in.long but weighed in at 8lb. Never have seen a fish that fat!!!It had 2 big tubes of eggs in it along with a lot of fat!!! Tried to get him to put it on the wall,but he has other plans for it.

    went out with the better half on sun. looking for an eye like that, caught 1 hammer handle and some crappie... water temp. 35-37 degrees, found small scattered schools of shad. fished vibes in the over 30 foot water- must not be holding my mouth right... saw 6-7 other boats near the dam, noone was doing anything. still, a day on the water! HAPPY NEW YEAR TO ALL!!!!
     
  15. Wow that is one fat saugeye for sure. I bet it put up a great fight.
