Hey folks,

Got my first keeper of the year. Don't worry, I only keep one sturgeon per year, which is more than enough for me. But to tell you the truth, I haven't caught a keeper sturge in 3 yrs. So this was a special day for me.

Started around 11am over by the ferry at cache slough. no bites, marked only a few fish. around 4pm, moved to under the bridge, just before tide change, ... tap, tap, tap...

BAM!!! fish on!

caught on a cocktail of pile, ghost, and eel w/ a sprinkle of procure sturgeon formula.

and for the bonus, it had a $20 reward tag from F&G.

Freeport Baiter, Congrats on the keeper *[smiley=thumbsup.gif] . That's got to make ya feel good after 3 years. The tag definitely puts the icing on the cake for you. Good job.

Nothing like waiting until the license runs out!! Even if you are a "bell tapper", congratulations! Are you going to wait until the end of 2008 to get your next keeper? I haven't had your luck: fished hard all year, and not a single keeper. Let's hope that 2008 will be better.
