Those fish are huge. I've kept and smoked some 45-50" fish. We've caught a couple 63-69" range. The most recent video by the Uncut Angling guys is ice fishing for them on the Rainy River.

The top video.

If you haven't seen these guys... they're expert fishermen and genuinely funny guys.

I speared one around 30 lbs four years ago, and that was a rush! I couldn't imagine the rush of seeing one of those monsters swimming threw a hole. It gets me all amped up thinking of it!

Wednesday marked the final day of the 2015 sturgeon spear fishery on the Winnebago System Upriver Lakes. The season closed with a harvest of 288 fish and 59.5 percent of license holders successful. Nine fish tipped the scales at more than 100 pounds. The five-day season is on par with the average season on the Upriver Lakes. There were 152 fish harvested from Lake Winnebago Wednesday and 135 Thursday bringing the season total to 1,582. Thursday's harvest of 52 adult females didn't quite get the season to the 90 percent closure mark and the season will continue at least through Friday. A harvest of 94 or more adult females Friday would close down the fishery. A total of five fish over 100 pounds were harvested Thursday.

Uber cool. :o
You can fool some of the bucks, all of the time, and fool all of the bucks, some of the time, however you certainly can't fool all of the bucks, all of the time.
