After being asked if the last pic I posted was a Walleye, I done some research on the Saugeye. It appears they are sometimes used to help manage lakes with stunted Crappie.
Habitat – Saugeye tend to congregate near the bottom on sand bars or near ledges and drop-offs.
Natural Food Sources – Saugeye eat fish, almost exclusively, from the time they are stocked.
Spawning – Saugeye are produced within our state fish hatcheries. Female walleye are crossed with male sauger resulting in a hybrid known as saugeye. Although not sterile, saugeye must be stocked routinely in order to maintain fishable populations.
Facts – Saugeye make first class tablefare. They are being stocked particularly in lakes with stunted crappiei because once they reach 16 inches, they begin to feed on these fish, thus improving the crappie fishery. Anglers can look forward to bigger and better saugeye fishing throughout the state.
