Sturgeon report 7/10-7/12

Recommended Posts

fishuhalik

Well it wasn't exactly gangbusters but we managed some fish. I wasnt able to make it up til weds afternoon. My buddies mainly fished eyes on the big lake Tuesday, and fished sturg in the evening. They managed 2 fish, one mid 30" and one 50".

Second day after I got there we focused entirely on sturg. It was slower than normal but we managed a few. Tons of missed fish, as they were biting light, even for sturgeon. Weds was apparently my lucky day as i got all the sturg, a 35", 44" and and 50". We fished well into the night til around 2, losing 2 jumpers and missing another mess of fish.

This am was pretty slow too. Again the sturg liked my crawler mess and I got 2, a 45" and 32". My buddy did get one 28" today though. Again we missed a ton of fish. Overall it was a b.e.a.utiful coiple days on the water and just getting a few made the trip worth it. Fish were caught from 20'-28' in several different structure variations. I'll upload some pics in a few days when I hawk at a computer, as I don't know how to do it on my phone.

Nope, never did. Originally I was gonna be there for a couple days but since plans changed and I only got the 1 day to fish we focused on sturg.

For those of you that have been holding your breath laugh here's the pics I promised. Sorry, I don't have a computer in Williston and I keep forgetting to upload them when I'm home.

1st fish of the weekend. Put up a good fight for his size!

2nd and tied for biggest fish of the weekend at around 50".

The video of the 2nd fish. Sorry for the camera flip, operator error. And he had to turn it off to land the fish since my other buddy had never landed a sturg by hand before.

Nice 26" trash fish my buddy got on a ball of crawlers. smile

My buddy's 50ish" fish. Funny how holding em different and being a foot shorter makes em look a whole lot bigger!

Another good-fighting mid-40" fish.

The redhorse in this river are ridiculous! This one was around 6lbs. And man are they purdy!

      Well that is pretty sad. Had a lot of good times, burgers and dinners up there snowmobiling and 4 wheeling.   www.grandrapidsmn.com/...hill...squaw-lake/article_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d... https://www.google.com/url?sa=t&rct=j&q=&esrc=s&source=web&cd=4&cad=rja&uact=8&ved=0ahUKEwjnv_rsyOrYAhUGEawKHV-ECfoQFghCMAM&url=http%3A%2F%2Fwww.grandrapidsmn.com%2Fnews%2Ffire-destroys-the-hill-bar-in-squaw-lake%2Farticle_aa3b5546-f7ed-11e7-b45d-c34d5b1f648a.html&usg=AOvVaw1LRiuHCFf3M7Xusreg7vdH

      Nice Bluegills Ricky! Those thumbnail sized opercular flaps are super special. H e l l those are thumbers!

      Well, check that one of the list. After trudging through the slush Saturday we were rewarded with a handful of undersized crappie. We'll have to try some of the options around Pelican next time. Happy, safe fishing everyone.

      Beautiful weather on Sat and Sun. but plenty of traffic! No traffic today but still a very slow bite this morning. Could just be the weather change!??? Cliff

      Heading to that area this weekend - Curious as too how much snow cover is on the area lakes, and whether it's even worth bringing the wheelhouse?

      I spent 3 hours last Saturday morning working on “the catalog” then went about my weekend, planning to finish at the end of the weekend.  Went to open it up and the new laptop won’t make pictures on the screen.  Tried everything; no dice.  Have to return the piece of Black Friday junk.

      Cliff, did you have a lot of vehicle traffic around you on Saturday? Maybe the bad fishing on Saturday was just the weather conditions, although Saturday was beautiful weather-wise.
    • Cliff Wagenbach
      Same here. Thursday was a good bite and the weekend bite was mostly a bust! Cliff

      I think he's going to not wash it and keep telling everyone at the bait store and on the lake he's a Pro Staff on HSO & Outdoors Minnesota. Until someone sends him a HSO hoody or new hat!
