Hey, I am now interested in sturgeon fishing from shore at sac river (more near Garcia Bend). I know I need a heavy pole, line, tackle...but what bait do I use, what rig, when do they run, how subtle do the hit, etc.? Any comments will help!
Thanks-

I would either do a search of this board (there is a ton of info) or If I was you and I had the time I would go to the sturgeon bank party.Then you can see these guys in action and most likely get a wealth of knowledge. ;D

Know

Now thats a very good idea, seeing how the majority of Sturgeon fishing guru's will be at one place at one time, and will have just enough beer in em to spill all the beans.. ::)

I have been fishing for stripers since I was teen with my grandpa, and for sturgeon for a few years now.I can honestly say that since I found this board I will be fishing entirely different from the way I have in years past.The stuff I have learned on this board in the short time I've been here is priceless to me.Unfotunatly work owns me untill at least mid november, but I plan on hitting the delta hard from then untill the water gets to high and fast for my taste.With the floating islands and trees like I saw last year and what not.Anyways thanks to all you helpful sniffers and I will post pics and reports when I get out.

For any of you looking for shore sturgeon information, check out my website @ http://home.comcast.net/~r_aspiras/sturgeon

It's outdated, but a lot of the information there is still useful. The only thing I've changed as far as rigging goes is a longer surf rod, different reel and heaver terminal tackle.

later,
Roland

How about your main line Innovate? Are you still going with 25 lb Big Game?

Nice site, Innovate!

This article describes fishing for sturgeon in the bay from a boat, but a lot of good info that might apply:

Thanks for all the input guys. It seems as if sturgeon shore fishing is similar to striper/catfish shore fishing...but with heavier equip. and diff. bait. It also seems it is about location...am I accurate? Thanks-

So the Sac River is a good place for sturgeon? I know you wrote something about hood/freeport...do they truly run in high numbers or do they come randomly and sparingly?

The sturgeon start to make their way up after the bulk of the Salmon have passed. Big numbers of fish usually start to make their way up this way (Hood/Freeport) around February and March.
