That’s a big Saugeye
Joe Kaseforth of Springfield recently caught a 27″ saugeye in the Cottonwood River on May 20th. His dad, John netted the fish. After measuring and taking pictures of the fish it was released back into the Cottonwood River. Joe shared the pictures with Brian Schultz, DNR Regional Fisheries Manger to confirm that it was a saugeye. A sauger sometimes hybridizes with a walleye to produce a saugeye. The fish Joe caught was close to the state record. This is just the basic info. Any questions, just let us know or talk to Brian at the NU DNR office.
