Featured Leesville lake monster eye

Discussion in 'Northeast Ohio Fishing Reports' started by got me hooked, Nov 3, 2017.

  1. My buddy caught this Friday night on a vibee on a ice fishing pole with 4lb test casting toward shore and then jigging close to the boat. Came in at 28" and a little over 9lbs. Biggest Saugeye I've ever seen.

  2. Great catch. I believe Leesville produced the previous record now held by Antrim

    Awesome catch!! Beautiful!
     
  5. Nice fish! I ran across a nearly dead fish on the surface about that size about 2yrs ago at Leesville while musky fishing. It, too, had been the largest on I had ever seen. Clearly, there is a population of good sized Saugeyes there.

    Yep, you are in trouble now. Will be spending many hours searching for another fish that size. That is a beast.

    Saugeye, seem to be able to adapt and grow to be very big! My thoughts are that they, may be living in an area with little fishing pressure, until they put on the feed bag and follow the bait fish. I have fished some lakes that have a limited population of walleye and every now and then, some one catches one and its a pretty good size. Central Ohio, appears to have a good Saugeye population, and produces some Huge ones. I look to see another record breaking fish soon. I'm not that close to get out on a regular basis to get the opportunity to fish enough for a pattern. For those who are able, I wish you good fishing!

    All I was saying is Clendenning had the record, Leesville never held it, although I am sure there are a few monsters in there
