Friday morning I caught 5 sauger and lost 2 at the boat while fishing Wheeler headwaters. Bass are still chasing crankbaits 13-17 feet. Most were spotted bass from 1 to 2 1/2 pounds with one largemouth weighing over 4 pounds. Catfish are also biting quite well as I managed to catch a couple of flatheads while cranking for bass. I saw about a dozen or so filleted carcasses at the boat ramp that appeared to be from 5-12 pounds. These looked like channel and blue cats. I wish people wouldn't leave such a mess right along the side of the ramp! By the way, shad from 1 1/2 - 2 inches are schooling by the thousands now. A well placed throw with a cast net will catch more bait than anyone could keep alive while fishing.
