Long swim???? don't you mean walk??? None of these waters connect. Just like our PA fish commision to know exactly what swims and what doesn't swim in the lakes and rivers. Last spring I boated a 30 inch northern on the first day of trout. The fish commision biologist was doing a creel survey at the launch. When I told him what we caught, I was informed that there are no northerns in the lake that it must have been a musky or a grass pickeral. When I described the fish to him I was told that it must have just looked like a pike but wasn't because there aren't any in the lake.....

Jerry,

Saugeye are smaller than Walleye but larger than the Sauger and is a result of inbreeding Walley and Sauger artificially in hatcheries or in natural environments.

Here is the link to Pa. fishes and their respective descriptions:

http://www.fish.state.pa.us/

You'll notice that it is more difficult to tell a Sauger from a Saugeye then either from the Walleye. Sometimes, VERY difficult!

Another interesting thing, there is no State record catagory for "Saugeye" on this web site for the Fish and Boat Commission? Odd!!



SORRY! I just tested the link and it went to the "Home" page. When you get there, on the left margin click on "fishing" then in the upper middle of page 2 are the menues to go to!!

Yes that saugeye does seem small for a state record.
Here in Kansas the state record is 9.81 lbs and 28.5 inches.
It was caught in November of 1997. If that fish would have
been caught in April full of eggs imagine what it would have
weighed.

Jerry,

That wasn't to correct you, just sharing info. This State DOES HAVE Saugeye but I found it ODD ;-) that the State doesn't have a catagory for the Saugeye record! Took ME by surprise!

Jerry, It probably came out of Raystown Lake. I have caught sauger thers and just below in the Juniata River. Still a long swim, but there aren't any sauger in these waters either, lol.
I wonder if a Sauger fingerling or two could have been mixed into a batch of walleye fingerlings and not noticed when stocking...
