    Ohio River sauger

    Folks I have been catching and eating sauger since the 70's . Last week I caught a couple up by the upper spillway at the falls , fillted them and put them in salt water ,like I always do

    IN 2 HOURS TIME the water turned brown , not pink like normal but like someone poured iced tea in it . This is just sad

    Then I read this https://theearthproject.com/most-pol...e-us/...breaks my heart

    Hate to hear that. We just thinking about getting out for some sauger. The link did not work though. What did the article say or can you try and send again?
    Thanks

    Yes, very sad, between that and the commercial fishermen that have been down below the Falls this year, I have done less fishing and more work around the house this year Jay. Highlight this year was fishing around the Hawaiian Islands.

    I've been to hawaii 2 times. Never fished there though.

    My wife gives me significant leeway for fishing around here. Vacation is VACATION. .

    I'm headed to Alaska for 18 days in the summer and prob wont' fish there either. Maybe though .

    Later,

    Man as you know it's another world out there. Just the sheer beauty is amazing and you're in deep, deep, water before you leave the harbor. Had a whale breach completely out of the water with my car still in site. Definitely a bucket list accomplishment. Alaska is on my list as well , you should be in peak King salmon and Halibut season. So many places to fish and only one life.
