Welcome to the Downward Spiral to becoming a River Rat, Big K - and your dad, too.

All the questions you ask are answered on this forum, but it takes some huntin' to find it all. If we don't have a "Sturgeon Fishing Tips" page, we should get one going. I don't know of any.

For starters, where are you going to launch? That will determine the best places to fish for sturgeon.

Re boat size, maybe someone with a similar boat can chime in. I have a 17 ft. North River and I'm comfortable anywhere on the delta with it, but it's a deep V and has a lot of free board for its size.

In the meantime, let me give you a couple of places to find lots of sturgeon info. Check my site for the "How To" page about sturgeon fishing here: HOW TO | FishWisher's Home Page (http://fishwisher.wordpress.com/category/how-to/)

and CalDelta.org has a great sturgeon tips page here: Sturgeon Tips | (http://californiadelta.org/wp/visitor-info/fishing/sturgeon-tips)

...and I'll look into a page for this site where fellas can find lots of tips in one place similar to the links I posted here.

Good luck! >>>>>>>>>>>>
