I was just quickly browsing the Ohio record fish (not that I expect to put my name on it any time soon ) and I noticed that the record sauger for the state was caught from the Maumee River in 1981 (24.5" 7.31#). I don't fish the Maumee at all anymore but have several times in the past. That is the first I have ever heard of sauger in there. Can anyone else attest to this. I know that they can be difficult to distinguish from walleye from what I understand (only from reading since I have never caught any) and I wondered if there was any chance of incorrect identification of species? If they are in the Maumee then they could be in Erie. Do they catch them up there? I also read that they preferred for turbid waters and thus were not really a lake fish.
