This morning at Long Lake I saw a boat trolling up and back, same lane in 25ish ft. Didn’t drop the net that I saw but they had it ready. Are there Saugeye or Walleye in there?

I have fished long for YEARS never caught an eye. But I constantly see people trolling there. Hard saying for sure. Crappies cats even bass possibly I suppose

I saw a guy trolling the east side of the lake one summer evening. He said he was trolling for bass. I've never heard of a walleye coming out of there before.

Over 20 years ago I caught 5 saugeye from North Reservoir while spring crappie fishing. It was a cold rainy day and ice would form in my rod guides. The eyes were all between 15 -16 inches. Never happened again after that day.
ODNR quit stocking them in Nimisila because they kept ending up in lake Erie I was told by a wildlife officer.
