Some of my sauger come on crankbaits but most are caught on an orange jig with a chartreuse 3" curly grub usually tipped with a large tuffy minnow. Use just heavy enough of a jig to hang almost vertical depending on the current at the time and place you are fishing. The large cylindrical barge tie-offs are good places or along the walls of the "dry lock"(The one in the middle that is not used for boat or barge traffic). Along the wing wall about 40 feet north of the powerhouse as well as along in front of all of the flood gates are also good spots. Use your trolling motor on low speed and bounce along the bottom until you find a concentration of fish. The water is still a little warm to find a lot of fish in one area so keep moving around. The NAFF home page has a link to TVA's web page which will give you critical info about generation schedule. Be sure to plan your trip for the first few hours of generation in the morning for now until more fish show up. (No current = NO FISH) Look around for eddys and "back wash" current areas anywhere you find structure. Good luck!
