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.

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.
