I was fishing today for saugeye but didn't catch any, however a guy there way kind enough to give me one he caught. I have two questions. 1 st. has anyone eaten an egg sack from a saugeye, I know guys that do from bass, pike and panfish. They say they are a real richy fish flavor. 2nd. I know bass can have eggs any given time off the year and I was wondering if saugeye would be the same. This egg sacks were as big around as a quarter and about 4-5 inches long.
For any interested the stomach contents contained one inch long shad and an assorted mess of digested bits and pieces I couldn't make out. She wasn't full by any means but she was eating.
