    That's no squawfish, it's a pike. All those lakes down that direction have had been compromised with the things. Caught one last year catfishing at Del Valle, I thought I had caught some Striper/Kokanee cross til some dude told me what it was, threw it to the birds. Hope you didnt try to eat it Slim!!

    Re: Anybody ever catch A Sturgeon with a flyrod?

    If you have Keith Fraser's little sturgon fishing book, there is a picture in it of underwater photographer Al Giddings Jr. with a 122 # sturgeon that he caught on a fly rod in the Hamilton Flats.

    I don't think getting the bait to them would be a big deal... you just give it a lob and it doesn't need to go that far anyway.

    Sounds like a challenge.

    I Caught a 59" on a flyrod (if you can call it that? had a mitchell 300 on it.) We were fishing the mothballs took me and 2 others just under 2 hrs to fight it in. not having a rod but to hold makes it fun!!!!!

    trying to cast a weighty bait around sounds like a challenge, just getting the bait to them would be 3 days of trial and error

    Dave Vedder did it on a dare about 8-10 years ago, he wrote a story about it in STS. Trippy for sure. His opinion? Fun once, never again. :o
