You'd be satisfied with one only 2x that size ??? ??? ???
10+ ft is not that uncommon, but now that the shad run is over the big boys might be back out to sea. There should be a bunch of keeper size though.

well, we went up there and the fishing was ok. We were there on Monday and Wednesday and C&R a total of 7 or 8 Sturgies. All of them were around 40-50" with the exception of my brother's baby sturgeon. I was hoping for an oversized fish but that didn't happen. Overall the sturgeons were biting good and will go back soon.
