Sturgeon report 7/10-7/12

Recommended Posts

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.

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!


And last fish of the trip. Cute little guy!

      Does anyone have A 5 person sleeper ice house for rent during February 6th through the 10th?

      Police brutality is a concern right now in many areas, and everyone is working to safeguard their rights. But it is this situation itself that needs to be examined. Having knowledge of police brutality was really helpful to me. Try this at . There is a ton of information here https://supremestudy.com/essay-examples/police-brutality/ on it, which you may also examine in further detail huge learn more about. I hope it will be helpful to you

      Finding between 3-7 inches of ice around most of the st cloud area. Was on one of the bigger lakes and one of the shallower ones in our area today. On the larger lake,  lots of ice in the bays, but main lake had roughly 3 inches where I checked.  The Shallow one had right around 7 inches.  Fish bit very well on one, and not so great on the other.

      Polkiss this...   Logging is the only way out of the Smokey the Bear debacle. We've created so much fuel in the understory from fire suppression. Logging, BIGTIME may be the only answer. Top off the past century of fire suppression with now hundreds of thousands of acres of bug kill in our mature forests when as much as a bug farts, millions of acres lie waste to everything from fire, even micro organisms in the soil. Then heavy rain, or snowmelt washes away what's left...... Log Baby Log 👍👍 and flood the mills with wood, not ash.

      many thanks to you all for providing the information.  it is appreciated.

      Knowing and comprehending it myself For instance, logging has increased significantly over time. This can't possibly be permitted. I can speak for myself when I say that we now need to consider how to read about this essay [source] because I was able to learn a lot and even used this information to write a course at the university. Therefore, if anyone needs some knowledge about deforestation, it is useful from both a theoretical and practical point of view. Everyone must protect the environment!

      Welcome to the forum. Thanks for the safety tip.  Always good to know where springs in lakes are!  👍

      Ok I did not check ice thicknesses yet but green, blue, baxter, lori, and elk all had anglers on them. I hope to check thicknesses soon.
    • Cookie123
      There is also some springs in the way back of blue lake ( In nashwauk MN) If you go back there you may run into some if you go to the right or the left there is some both directions so I would suggest not going back there or if you do i would check the ice every 25ft or so at least have fun out there
