      Interesting ... I've always wondered because we have this breed on lake Lida mn and I'm sure several lakes! Thanks for the education. They're really ...more dark in color from what I recall
    3. Douglas Ward 0
      Saugeye is a hybrid of Saugers and Walleye... aggressive little things, the cross doesn't happen in nature. the ODNR stirs together the eggs with the other ...more type and it makes these fish, then they stock them.

      Ha! Part walleye and part what? Cool looking fish no doubt about it :)
