Bigfish starved rock is one of the better places to shore fish for walleyes & saugers due to the fact that they stage there for the spawn. The wall all the way down towards the bridge holds quite a bit of fish. The key thing is knowing to fish the area cause there are alot of rock structure, mud/sand structure. Start with 1/8oz jigs in various colors with live bait or plastics, I do very well with plastics (bring extra jigs in different sizes too due to current & snags). I was down there on monday (3/31) & hooked into 3, landed 1 @ 20". Tough fishing that day imo due to major tournament held that weekend with close to 700 fish weighed in. But as water continues to warm the fishing only gets better with whitebass run right after walleye/sauger spawn. Heres a pic of a male 20" sauger from monday.
