Need help here.. Been at this 4 times already tried everything i have jerk baits rattle traps and nothing. I know they don't spawn but are they inactive right now? Do they behave like walleye? Are they bottom huggers? Is sundown the best time? Do they like deeper or shallower water? Any recommendations? Thanks

I've never seen or caught one at Prospect. I would recommend you change location and try Crown Hill or Bear Creek Park. We got a couple out of Bear Creek Lake off crawlers and I watched Ralpert get one when we iced Soda.

I got that from the heading on your post....I knew which fish you were asking about. Nightstalker is the expert on this if you can contact him or if he wants to help out. I personally don't think targeting them at Prospect will get you anything....but I could be wrong.....

I put in a couple hours last night with suspending jerks and nothing. There are definitely fish in there but a small group of people take a ton of fish out of that lake. I also suspect that travelers staying at the hotel impact the lake as well
I did well last fall for the smaller saugeyes on 3" X-raps, twisty tail grubs and gulp minnows on a jig (the Chad lachance rig if you will). I have also seen them roaming the shallows in mid day which was very strange but they were going thru the spawning motions...talked to a bunch of people because that didn't seem normal, especially for how clear that lake usually is. I'm hoping to get out soon as my back feels better.
