Good luck Matt! My buddy and I had a double hook up on Saturday. His rolled and cut the line and mine shook loose after a awesome 15+ minute fight!

OK....Heres the tally-

Got on the water about 6:30 or 7. And threw the ghosties in the drink. About 15 min. later...tap,tap,tap, SWING... :o AAWWW man just a striper. I got it to the boat and it was legal so strung it up with hopes that this was not our destiny tonight to get into a bunch of lil stripers...


Well it was'nt... About an hour later... MUDSUCKERS pole started dancing on the balancer :D Pump one...Pump two...Shazam!!! Sturg. ON!!! Great fight for about 10-15 min. SinkerSlinger grabbed the spot light and handed it to me just in time to light up the air show!!! This thing came all the way out of the water, Like it was on the outdoor life network.

MUDSUCKERS finaly got her belly up to the boat and I could NOT believe my eyes...A GREEN sturgeon!!! Man I've been waiting all my life to see one of those things...Spikes all over and razor blades everywhere :o...http://img113.imageshack.us/img113/6154/greensturg1ub5.jpg

We taped her out at 52"... :D FREAKIN AWSOME!

Next it was SinkerSlingers turn...Double pump....BAM fish on...And it was a monster ;D ;D ;D Taped out at 15" ;D ;D ;D cutest little thing i've ever seen...

Next it was my turn. Id been waiting four hours since that striper so my pole looked like it was moveing even when it wasnt... ;D And then it did...Tiny lil taps...SWING...Fish-ON!!! Felt good, Ran about 20-30 yards right out of the gate...Got her to the boat and she taped out at 40" >:( Owell my arm hurt for a minute so it was worth it! ;D

Great job men! I have only caught one sturgeon, and it was by accident, and a small one at that, like 36". Would like to try sometime soon. I defeated the mythical leopard shark, so now I might have to have a new obsession.

Great night out there guys! Good that you got this trip in before the weather today. Neighbor of mine managed one keeper stripe before the wind blew them off the water. Power lines are on fire right now, gotta get out there soon!

I never caught or seen a greenie that big before, the scutes on that one look like it would a nice mark onya if not handled right WOW!!! Good report & nice pix, thanx for sharing that w/us. By the way how big (length/weight) do you think the green sturgeon get? I know the whites get the biggest. [smiley=clap.gif]

Me and krzy boated a 62 green a couple years ago...Biggest mistake I could make was bringing the thing in the boat. They will tear everything up. Had both grown men up on the seats like girls. They are sharp and very strong. I think they are the ones that get away cause of their sheer streagth and sharp scutes...Very dangeruos out in the middle of nowhere :o

Nice fish guys ;)

Yah once we got it into the boat I wanted to jump into the water to get away from it!!! Crazy... Those things will rip you open like a soda can ;D

The only way MS could hold her was by letting it run a few times until she gave up and turned over 30 min. later ;) Even then we were leary of boating her but Weve never seen one before...So we took the chance :D

We boated a 50" a few years ago and it was hot as well. We thought it was much larger until it came up fought like a big Striper. Tore my vinyl on the seat, so boat them if you dare, that was the last in my boat.
