Catch a 40" Sturgeon on Monday night, released immedately, but what a fight, i thought he was going to strip all my line off the reel. I was only using 6 lb test so i couldn't horse him. I was so darn excited that I have no idea of what kind of a wieght this fish may have been. Any ideas. Thanks.

My guess would be in the low to mid teens. Some sturgeon are build so different then others. I weighed my 59" on the Rainy a couple of years ago and that was 42#. They sure do fight don't they.

I caught one about 3 or 4 pound a couple of years ago, I thought it was about a 15 pound walleye. since then I caught one on the rainy about 48 inches and it weighed about 24-25 pounds maybe a little more. I fought it on lite walleye tackle for about 35 minutes.

Out of the St.Louis about 16-20#. They sure are fun. Any eyes for you?

Very limited eyes, we were set up on a flat, closer to the MN shore than everyone else who was fishing the channel. First night we got a 19" eye and a 12" perch and that was it, Monday the Sturgeon was my only fish but i left before dark due to fishing with out my house and feeling satisfied.

Wirz, 86 lber huh! Maybe when you up to Rainy this spring you'll hook into something that big.

Nate,

I left a message for ben, but I haven't heard back. Wondering if you guys would be up for a gunflint trip on the weekend of the 11th. We'll probably get a cabin up on the trail, and fish friday thru sunday. Should be a good time.

      Water Levels I believe are now at a record high with all the rain last week, and more fell last night.  I hope it stops raining soon for all the people who have businesses and live in the area.  Water can do so much damage.

      MarkB, Where did you find the perch?  I would love to get into some of those.  MarkB are you fishing more on the east or west end?

      Where are the water temps now with all the rain?  Coming up for a week on Friday and want to see what I can find out.  I have had a very poor fishing so far this year.  New to the area and just can't figure it out.  Home is on the west end of big bay.

      I'm gonna try this picture thing again. Please bear with me.      Our buddy Greg with his best of the trip.     Above: Pike River bridge the morning we left.        Below: My cousin Tim caught these the morning after the storm.

      Mark, Glad your crew had another great outing. It’s always good to read your reports. Just wish there were more of them like the old days. Sorry you hit the storm. One of the worst in our 14 years. We’ll be dealing with dock issues for a long time but nothing like the good folks in Cook have.  The fishing has come around a little since the storm. Definitely nightcrawler now. I don’t get far out of Frazer but the reefs are where the action is. Looking forward to hearing from you in September.  My best to you and Linda, RLG p.s. Our good old red lab, Ole, cashed it in last summer, but we have a 6 month old lab now who is learning the ropes up here (and teaching us we’re older than we think we are!)
