I've been down there twice in the last week fishing for cats in the late afternoon/early evening. The only thing I've caught has been sauger - a few nice ones actually, maybe 4 lbs or so. Using shad on the bottom. I figure I'll pass that along to the sauger guys on here.

Are you speaking of the Fernbank Park off of River Road?
Yes sir! (I can't just type "yes sir" because it's too short so I'm adding this to lengthen the post :D)

Sorry man, no pics. I never thought about it till recently - I might have over-estimated the weight a little but one was over 24" long and fat. The same spot now we've been catching nothing but BIG mooneyes on nightcrawlers (which I do have a pic of LOL). Oh well...beats a blank I guess.

at 24", its possible it was one of the natural reproducing river walleyes, there are way more then most folks think, I took several over the years at Greenup fishing for saugers. Har dto tell the difference though.

Maybe but I've never seen a walleye covered in dark blotches the way a sauger is. I should have got a picture but I wasn't thinking. I kept a couple of the mooneye - the one in the picture is swimming around in my 90 gal tank in the basement!
