Saugers are biting good in deep water using my slip sinker and hair worm rig, but they’re running small. That hair worm a piece of worm with acrylic hair melted on, about 1/2″ of orange hair on a 1″ piece of motor oil worm. I was using a 3/4 weight but the river came up even more today so I went with a 1oz and that is easy to keep down. I don’t know why they are laying in strong current when they could be a less current, but I imagine the hole somehow breaks some of the current, it has to since there is more depth where the river is the same width. The water is turning murky now but not real bad. The bigger Walleye are hard to find, I think they spread out and they are probably catching some at the dam tailwaters. The rough fish are still in the holes and so fishing slack areas means running your lure through solid fish with little chance of finding Walleye. It’s been so windy that I have just been fishing the Rock River but plan to fish the Mississippi River when the weather straightens out. Now they are calling for cold weather this weekend, barely above freezing. I don’t want to take the big boat out in that cold. I should save my gas, it hasn’t really been worth going, but I get tired of sitting at home.
