Sorry to hear about your Grandfather Casey. Hope everyone in your family gets through the next few weeks OK. It's always a rough time.

All of that is true. Up here all the Saugeye are natural and really rare. Saugeye get alot bigger than Sauger do. Since they are so rare here, and I have seen precisely three, none of which I caught, and all were small, size would not have helped.
Actually I have come across a fair number of people who can't tell Walleye from Sauger either.
