This was caught in Ohio Brush creek near Peebles, Ohio....no where near any saugeye stocked lake and 20 miles, or more, from the ohio river.

I catch very few saugeye, walleye, or sauger to really know the clear difference. Im guessing a saugeye... its not nearly as dark as the sauger we have caught from the ohio river. And its not nearly as green as the walleye I have seen from Erie.

Now the fact that its no where near a stocked body of water has me lost. My gut tells me it cant be a saugeye.....but it doesn't look like the other options. I guess it could have came up the creek from the ohio river.......a very long journey.

Can anyone make a good guess from thia pic?

Did it have spots or bars in the membrane between the rays on the dorsal fin?

At the time I didnt think to look. I got home and did some research and found out that that was one of the distinguishing characteristics. Ill definately look next time.


Thanks everyone.

Okay. I would have to guess Sauger. The dorsal looks a little spotty from what I can see.

The coloration of most fishes can vary depending on water clarity and temperature.

Absolutely. Look at the lack of color in this bad Sauger that tried to eat a Superfluke half his size while I was Wiper fishing:D Had the rows so I knew it was a Sauger. Another one under a float with a finesse minnow fishing for Whites
