About Saugeye

The best character to look at for identifying this hybrid is the dark bars or oblong vertical spots between the spines of the first dorsal fin. The membrane of this fin in the unmarked areas is often a dusky color and not as clear as that of a Sauger. Saugeye also have white tips on the lower part of the tail and anal fins. Cheeks have scales. The overall body color of a Saugeye is also intermediate between the gray to silver color of a walleye and the bronze or brown color of a Sauger.
