This is a fish that is not easy to catch: Sturgeon. I tried a few times in the SF Bay Area as well as once in the Czech Republic but I generally only caught other fish species. So to go after this rare, hard-to-catch prehistoric-looking fish was going to be a challenge. Their numbers are not great and abundant as they used to be in the past due to being over-fished as well as they require long periods of time in order to grow up to be of breeding age so any Sturgeon that is caught over 100 pounds is considered to be a trophy. There are history reports that people have caught Sturgeon that were over 1000 pounds but who knows what the real truth was back then. So to me, anything over 50 pounds is good enough for me.
On this trip, I was hopeful that this was going to be the day to take down another bucket item.
One Sturgeon! One Sturgeon!
That’s all I ask of! And I get one within a few hours! Yessss!
Problem was that the fish was too small so it had to be released so off it went and back into the abyss of the black water.
But i was not worried as the Fishing Gods have blessed me with dumptrucks loaded with luck… again. i land an even bigger fish and this one was a KEEPER!
But nevertheless the bucket list item was crossed off.Follow me on Instagram:
