and I didn’t get to experience it….
I missed it by 3 or 4 days this year, but the past 2 weeks have been nothing short of choas and mayhem up there. Boats catching 10-20 60″ fish a day was not uncommon.
I’ve been running a small contest with 30-50 people for the last several years. Format is biggest 5 total measured in length, and this year’s totals were mind blowing! 35 people entered this year and to even crack the top 10 you had to average 64″ (320″). 267 total fish were entered with 125 of those over 60″, 39 over 65″ and 5 over 70! Biggest fish was 73.5. 45% of the fish entered were over 60″. The winner finished with 337.5″ (a nearly 69″ average).
What an awesome Sturgeon fishery MN anglers are getting to experience, and my oh my have things changes since Sturgeon Excursion 2005. LOL
