    Hang in there, it took me awhile to get the hang of saugeye fishing. All my fish have come late this season..from 11PM till Midnight. Before and after that window have been a bust for me. You might think about trying Indian or Buckeye where the fish seem to be more cooperative. Alum seems to be "spotty" although they all are, Buckeye and Indian both have more well known spots where people get them regularly.:D

    Don't forget live bait, bass minnows through the lips on a floating jighead about 8" above the weight. Fish tightline with this setup or you can use a slip bobber, hook the minnow just under the dorsal fin towards the tail be careful not to hit the bone. Experiment with different depths, this is why I use a slip bobber it's quick to adjust. During the day I fish the bottom at night I'll use the bobber and keep it close to shore.
