I need to knot witch pond is better for sauger coot pond or pintail pond I heard from a park ranger that they both have sauger in them but need to know witch is better lookin for the sauger but haven't tried hopefully goin sometime this week. And if you could tell me what they bite best on and what time of day they bit too, thanks
Ive caught several out of Coot but dont be looking for any size, they are only little guys. Just use the smallest weight you can get away with and a small circle hook. Thread a crawler up the hook and onto the line till the point comes out the end. I did best if the worm is pretty much straight. Just SLOWLY drag it on the bottom.
is there any other things you can catch em on? like jigs with gulp baits? or rooster tails? because id much rather spend a coulple dollars on a lure than 5 on a thing of worms that will last you a couple of hours. if so let me know

Ive also caught a couple on a 1 inch dark green swim jig hoped on the bottom and a rebel floating hoppR twitched fast on the surface but it was deffinatly the worms that they were hitting the most. When it was cooler is when I was doing best so I think early morning would be best right now

Dont need anything but saftey gear if no motor whether elec or gas. I believe the last time I was out there was May. Dont know about that late, Hard to be out late with younguns. it wasnt the popper hopper it was the one with the steep scoop on the front but I twitched it fast and hard so it made alot of camotion on the surface. That would drive them nuts and they would start swinging at it but I only hooked them a couple times.
i just found out today a by a park ranger that pintail pond has walleye and pike in it an little ole yellow legs pond has saugeye in it i was truly suprized to find that out and i know where im fishing from now on lol its really small and im just going to use worms all day long there. and i also found there is a healthy shad population there snagged on accident but i used it as baid but i figured it was to big so i threw it back after a few casts. but i know im going to fish that place hard until the ice comes!!!!

I haven't been up tehre for probably 3-4 months, but I caught several saugeye at Coot on the south end...on flies. They weren't bigger than maybe 6-8", but they were saugeyes. I might try a casting bubble and a fly early morning or evening around sun up or sun down.
