Saugeye on the Bighorn Lake

Carlo and i had a day off from the river and decided to take the Nitro bass boat up to Bighorn Lake.  Let's keep going, a little farther, one more bend.  After 35 miles up the canyon we decided to stop and start fishing.  We looked around and there was bait everywhere.  There were thousands of small emerald shiners swimming up to the surface getting chased by Small Mouth Bass, Walleye, Sauger; we didn't know.  Carlo had a great idea to wind drift the boat off of the point of the lake and start to jig.  About 30 minutes later on, during the second pass we started to get some bites. 

Here is  one of  the Saugeye we caught that day.  Saugeye are a walleye, sauger cross that is prevalent in the upper Bighorn Lake near the Wyoming border.
