Unintended Hook Up: Sturgeon

My bro-in-law, Richard Zach, is one successful gear fishermen. If he goes out, he rarely fails to connect into his intended target species. Recently, he was fishing for Salmon. Using his tried and true set up, the rod bent mightily…too mightily for a Chinook. Check out his link for Stik-itz

Yes, this surgeon was in the vicinity of 10′ long and somehow decided to gobble a rainbow spoon affair…not the normal glob of stinky bait on the bottom with seven ounces of lead holding it steady. The fish was well outside the slot limit and was released unharmed. Yet another story for Richard to add to his fishing journal.

Sturgeon: Another Anadromous Fish

Salmon and Steelhead often dominate the discussion of ocean going fish and habitat considerations inland. That other pre-historic like creature fits into that ocean going circle also..the sturgeon. There are several dozen species of sturgeon around the world. The Western U.S. has these behemoths in several rivers. I recall standing gazing down on the Snake River near Hells Canyon dam at first light. The amazing sight of a giant sturgeon leaping from the water and landing on its’ side broke the morning silence. Dare I say, sturgeon tastes amazing!
