Red,

I fish for sauger in West Tennessee and we have had an excellent season so far. I mainly fish around the Saltillo area (Pickwick some). I am suprised that they are not biting good on the whole river. I have been 5 times this year, and have caught 49 keepers (296 fish total). I caught 15 keepers (2 people) this past Friday. People have been catching limits, (TEN - 14" fish) but not me. I really think the best is yet to come, too bad I will have to start bass fishing soon. The fish I caught Friday were using 46-50ft. of water. When the water is slow and low, they tend to go deep. I have been catching my fish on a 1 oz. red football jig that I pour and paint myself. I have been using plastic grubs in red, white, green & shad colors. I do just as good without minnows as I do with them. Hope this helps. Jason
