Sturgeon Fishing

5 posts in this topic

Hello, I am an avid sturgeon angler, mostly on the Rainy River, but I am looking to expand my sturgeon fishing elsewhere. Does anyone know of any info on sturgeon fishing on the red? Locations or success? Any info would be fantastic! Thanks.

There is no open season on the Red (in MN/ND) for Sturgeon.

Stu, I had a buddy fishing Sturgeon Hole, out of the Frontier landing a few days ago. He did really well. Never got a really big one, but saw a couple dandies caught and he got decent numbers (I don't think I ever heard an exact number of fish he caught, but I know he was happy).

Thanks for the reply Scoot! I doubt if I'll have any free time to make a trip to over the Rainy for sturgeon this spring. I'll settle for a trip or two on the Winnipeg instead. Right now I'm getting ready for the kitty season which will be getting underway on May 12th. Things are looking excellent so far, the river's in great shape so those whiskered giants otta be cooperative!

      still love my setup for bluegills but not the best when I use a size 10 jig and fishin for crappies. I might grab the clam springs and rig a rod up with the wire thats a little stiffer and see how it works. this would just be for deep fish.

      Out Sunday ... Looked like a City of Trucks and Castles ... Bite was slow but managed a few Crappies / sonnies on Plastics.   we lost a nice walleye near the hole on a moon jig and crappie minnow.   Might have to go Perching in the shallows on south side of MilLacs this weekend.  Hey Moose ... what ya using for Perch on Millacs shallows 12-18 FOW?

      Was out after work for a couple hours yesterday and got two walleyes to bite. The Landing is getting flooded out. Was kinda hesitant on driving out after seeing all the trucks parking on Shore and taking the long walk out. With all the black ice out there it was a little spooky but after seeing 17" to 19"of good ice  was pretty comfortable with it

      I will be interested to hear of your experience.  Please let us know.    I think the anecdotal evidence was that the service and quality was not up to the premium price, although that could be old news.     "fine dining" has been a tough sell on the lake.   Several places have tried and failed that I am aware of.

      Only fishing for crappies. With a baby at home only get a few hours after work to fish.
