Angler StoryI had been catching some decent saugeye the past few weeks in several spots across the lake. With the wind gusting out of the south I didn’t feel like fighting the wind in the boat so I decided to walk down the dam fishing the rocks. I was using a Berkley Powerbait swim bait in chartreuse shiner. Fishing was slow throughout the day so I left the lake and went back just before the sun went down and fished the same area I had earlier in the day. I caught this fish and another saugeye that was over 18 inches just as the sun was setting.
