2nd time sturgeon fishing.

Cool day on the water, real cold this morning, ice on dock and foggy like no ones business. *Good old GPS saves the day. *Ended up at the mothball fleet. *I had 3 nice takedowns and swung 3 times and missed 3 times. *Partner in the boat had a couple nice takedowns.

Others who went with us ended up with a 44.5 inch sturgeon...they tried everything to get it to *be legal, but no luck. Caught on roe with a squirt of anise.

New water for me today so it was pretty cool. *Found out that I really need a heavier anchor or at least some more chain. *Current pretty fast couldn't get to stick anywhere deep.

Current was fast, we were holding lines down at 12 ounces. I've gone heavier before but that was doing the trick for us anyways.

Wow 12ounces? we were fishing with 6 fine, we were out there were everyone else was. Current was quite fast today, honestly never seen it go so fast ever since I've been there. Dock was sure slippery too, learned the hard way how not to walk on icy dock >:( >:(. haha

I am a bit agressive in a ripping current to ensure that bait stays on the bottom, when I pick up my line and I can tell its not on the bottom I add more weight until it feels like its going to stick.
