Recent Sturgeon Fishing Reports

My First Sturgeon Excursion
Yes as the title says this was my first sturgeon excursion but you can bet it will not be my last! This trip has been on my bucket list for a long time and this year I finally took the plunge and now I wonder what the heck took me so long. My fishing partner Joe Pletta and I took off on Wednes...

May, June, and July Bass Report
Despite my lack of activity on the forums as of late, I have been far from inactive on the water in the months of May, June, and July. These months have meant Summer for this college kid, and I have spent countless hours on various Mississippi River pools, along with a few lakes, including Stuge...

2011 Sturgeon Excursion Report
The book is closed on the 2011 Sturgeon Excursion, but the memories will last a life time!I enjoyed the companionship of Mr. Tim Miller and Ido Reporter Jesse Krook this year. Tim was a sturgeon virgin prior to this trip, but I think there's sturgeon slime in his blood now. We arrived at The Wig...

10/10/10 St. Croix River Sturgeon Update
The elusive sturgeon has been on my bucket list of fish to catch for a long time now. In previous years I have not fished for them, so this year I made a goal to catch a 40" + sturgeon before the end of the season (October 15th). My first outing was very disappointing with only boating one sturg...

Never a dull moment with a Sturgeon!
I have to say tonight was one of the most unusual nights I've ever had sturgeon fishing. I was fishing with Ray from Cassville, WI and Ray was a Sturgeon virgin. He's caught some shovels in his neck of the woods, but no Lakers. Setting the stage. Ray already put 14 sturgeon in the boat along ...

Thursday night Jon J, Mike B, and myself headed up for the 1st of our 2 trips this year. Friday morning we didn't get on fish rite away but wit...

Girl Power/Rainy River Sturgeon
As the Rainy River spring sturgeon season continues the girlfriend and I came across an odd day; a day she had off of work and I did not have clients or other chores to get done. Days like this are rare so being the romantic type of guy I am I offered a get away to a remote spot on the Rainy Riv...

Sturgeon on the Rainy, a chilling report.
With temps dipping well into the low teens and a 25 mph Northwest wind pushing super cooled Canadian air into northern Minnesota it was not the perfect day for boats or open water fishing. Although we would make it the perfect day as Jon Marshall from Marcum Technologies was stuck in Baudette af...

Spoonbills and Sturgeon out of Everts Resort
Never say never. Less than 30 minutes prior to this paddle fish catch, I was explaining to Tanner Harcey why we never catch spoonbills fishing the way we do. Spoonbills eat plankton and are generally snagged when caught by hook and line fisherman. Anchoring and fishing with our bait on the bott...

Sturgeon of the Missisippi River 08.02.2009
Our anchor touched down in 23 fow and our baits ended up in 30 to 50 fow depending on how far back we cast. My Favorite Wife and I were using crawlers, sucker slices, fat head minnow or combination of all of the above. The targeted fish today: Channel Cats, Shovelnose Sturgeon and anything el...

2009 Sturgeon Excursion Report
Wow - If time flies when you are having fun, this trip was a 747!! The 2009 Sturgeon excursion on the Rainy River/Lake of the Woods was a great 3 days of big fish and good fun. Compared to last year the bite was pretty slow, but the number of big fish made up for that in a hurry! The genera...

Rainy River Sturgeon Report – 4/9 – 4/10
What began with a long drive to our state’s international border with Canada, ended with sore backs, burning arms, and jaw-aching grins. Favorable weather conditions had me heading north to fish the mighty sturgeon with a good friend, Jon Marshall of Nature Vision/Marcum Technologies. Our goal...

St. Croix River Lake Sturgeon Report
This years Lake Sturgeon season on the St.Croix has been an interesting one this fall of 2008. The bite had been a little slow to start with warmer water temps early in the season. People were finding the Sturgeon were not as aggressive as in seasons past, until recently when water temps start...

Mississippi River Sturgeon Report
Friday evening was just a awesome time to be fishing the upper end of Pool 4! And what a way to end and evening of fishing with the father/son team of Peter and Joe Janik with a double shovel!Sliver of sucker has been working well for Shovelnose Sturgeon, Channel Cats and Flatheads. Tonight we s...

Rainy River-Excursion #2
This past Monday, friend Mike and I headed back up to the Rainy River to see if the Sturgeon were still active. We were both there for the Sturgeon Excursion a week and a half ago, and really enjoyed the area, and the fight of these very strong fish. I was originally looking to go up last week...
