Sturgeon fishing...big fish...big fun

Recommended Posts

curt quesnell

4 MIle Bay is wide open and the Sturgeon are biting.

This is big fun, easy to do and pretty much your only

chance at a fish over 40 pounds in our state.

The peak time is now until early in May.

Spool up some heavier line(35# or better), use a 3 oz

weight Lindy style rig with big hook globbed with crawlers

or smushed up minnows. Anchor along the river channel

in 4 Mile Bay(bring a good anchor) cast out and be patient.

Big BIG fish and, most days, plenty of em.

My first trip Sturgeon fishing was last spring. We went

again Saturday late in the day and most of Sunday. If you

catch a couple of fish you will have a good day and, you

may hook into 10 or 12 in a very tiring day.

Don't stop just because Walleye season is closing. Come

up and catch the biggest fish of your LIFE!

Its a catch and release season only right now so bring

a camera and treat the fish with some respect.

Good fishing all

We're headed up to fish for sturgeon on Sunday, Monday, and Tuesday. I cannot wait!

You said to anchor in the river channel? Do you mean in the lake itself? If so, how far out are you talking? And how deep of water are you typically fishing in? Thanks for any help.

Leech, shoot me an email at eyeslayer at hotmail dot com. I'm pretty sure I'll be up there Sunday, so I'll get you my phone #'s, and we'll figure out a plan of attack. Do you have a depth finder on that boat? If not, if one of you guys has a Vex or something for ice fishing you'll want to bring it. The channel runs through 4 Mile Bay to the gap at Pine Island where it enters the main lake, and without a depth finder, you'll waste a lot of fishing time trying to find "the right spot".

I'll gaurantee Pauls dad had fun. Know how I could tell other than that ear to ear grin and the charlie horses in his hands? He took his throw away camera in to get pics developed with several pics left on the roll! lolol Hes never really spent much time in a bigger boat than mine and was reealllllly impressed with justins ranger, thought it rode pretty nice! Thats a pretty big compliment coming from him.. I had to ask him 5 times if he wanted to come along with and my mom finally convinced him, now I think we'll be back up this fall chasing sturgeon instead of heading to the winnipeg river for greenbacks. Which of course is fine with me because I had a ball too!! Tanks Curty and all! Paul
