Legally?

Now you're stuck with the Canadian border waters.

In the fall, there is a short season on the St. Croix from the Taylors Falls Dam to Prescott.

If your talking about shovelnose sturgeon, then I believe the season is continuous, but you can only keep them below the red wing dam.

I am not familiar with the areas. Can you give me directions?

From p16 of the 2007 regs, shovelnose and lake sturgeon have no open season on inland lakes.

I mentioned above open seasons for lake sturgeon.

From p54 of the 2007 regs, there is a continuous open season for shovelnose sturgeon on the Mississippi River only downstream from the Red Wing Dam. The limit is 10 with no minimum size limit.

      Nice thats what I like to hear, was doing an annual trip to LOW with my buddies, but to be quite honest biggest fish I ever saw in 10 plus trips was 27 inches, I caught 3 bigger than that on the pond last year, and hey I can stay in Wright county where I live and catch 10 inch walleyes.. I don't make it up to that end of the lake ever, usually fish the south end..Bought a wheel house this year, would loke to set it up as base camp and hopefully be able to head up toward that end and do some exploring..And thanks for the input, thinking there is a lot of readers and not many writers on this site nowadays...

      Lake Marion is completely iced over. Hopefully we won't get much snow and be fishing soon.

      Silver lake in New Brighton is iced over. I'm going to count one week before checking thickness on my early ice spots. Could be fishing next Friday if all goes well.
