Sturgeon on the Louis

6 posts in this topic

Has anyone else here caught any big sharks on the river this year? I caught 2 over 40" in the past week. I was fishing to catch sum eyes but still had fun fighting those things for over an hour on my ultra light!

I've got a few of em this year. They're a lot of fun on light tackle, a little tricky landing them through an 8 in hole. Biggest I got was 44 inches.

Remember these are protected and are not kept. Actually not even suposed to take them out and take pics but thats another story I wont go into.

Granny I have caught them on anything from a bare hook and minnow to a jigging rap. If its sitting there and near the bottom they will suck it in.

I caught a couple decent ones this year. Raw power. Fun to catch but a waste of good walleye/poutin time. grin.gif

I was fishing boyscout and up from there a ways and caught some big sturgeon and a few smaller eyes. I was jigging a rattle glow spoon and hitting the bottem with it every now and then with a full minnow. Of course you can't keep them, but for me, it is hard to beat the rush of catching a fish that big on a pole that small. I would show the pictures, but I would'nt want to get in any trouble. grin.gif

The bigger ones were always caught between 3:00-4:30pm

      Was up yesterday.  Tried going out of Stoney Point the sand landing is undo able ice ridge out a ways and did not see any tracks going out.  The boat launch has a pressure ridge in front and looked like ATV were following the ridge  toward the point.\ There were two trucks out there no idea how they got there.  we finally went out of Pine Point.  Ice conditions are perfect. No slush no water on the road,   You cannot get out to the trench from here ice heave between. We drilled some holes and a lot of  5 inch perch. When we were going out we asked if the tullies were biting,and he said no  not yet Seems to shallow out any where out there. The was in excellent shape as a lot of wheel houses were coming out.  4 wheel drive was not used all day.  Ice cleats would have been nice to have.Hope this helps

      Most of the mercury pollution in our lakes is from rain.  That's why lakes deep in the back country also have consumption advisories.
