      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 :)

  10. Decided to go flip this heavy ass jig with a ridiculously large zoom fluke on the hook into some weedbeds... LMB are some dumb fish .. my lure looks more like a ...more kids toy than food...

    15 in. Largemouth Bass with a Football Jig


I have an 18 foot 1974 trailcraft lake canoe that I love fishing from. When I can't convince anyone to go paddle power fishing with me I do ...more it from the shore. I would consider myself a newbie even though I fished all the time as a kid, mostly because some many years later I decided to pick it back up again... You may find me asking a lot of dumb questions, and misidentifying fish 🐠 .. I've really started to get into topwater fishing, when before I swore by the Senko worm... I bring two poles out each time with the idea to do both top water and senkos, but by the end I've got two different color whopper ploppers rigged up. Lol! 😂
