Did you use the magic purple Corky again??
Ya just Can't catch um from the couch.
Haha I did! But had my bait stolen off that rig :(
If I'm not mistaken ... Dorsal streaked rather than spotted with a black blotch at the back to boot.
Not your classic looking saugeye but definitely some walleye blood. Which is pretty common I'm told. Wouldn't surprise me if it is 75% Sauger. Definitely a neat fish, like a Sauger with a walleye dorsal
If it is, she can still count it as either of the parent species.
10#+ Flathead Catfish
5 New Standard Species (Current Count: 6 - Check)
No argument here Graceclaw!
I've been fishing waters with both parents species for a long time in hopes of a Saugeye ... from what I've read they make up 2-3% of the populatuion ... apparently I'm not even that lucky. Should just throw away my lottery tickets now :(
Yeah I was thinking maybe saugeye too, definitely an odd one
It a saugeye...classic appearance of the hatchery raised and stocked variety...I’d guess that you caught it in Kansas after ur Missouri fishing?
Nope, Minnesota out of the mighty Miss :)
Nevermind...that is lucky cool catch then
