(Pittsburg) While sturgeon anglers had been marking sturgeon in the West Delta throughout the fall, the fish just recently started hitting in a major way. As of press time outstanding sturgeon fishing is now raging in the Pittsburg area.
“The sturgeon fishing has gotten really good recently,” related Captain David Hammond of Delta Pro Fishing. “We’ve had keeper sturgeon on our last three trips along with lots of shaker action. Roe has been the hot bait in the Pittsburg area. While targeting sturgeon this past week we also picked up a 21 pound striper.”
“Speaking of bass fishing, the striper bite remains a little inconsistent. Some days we troll up limits and other days we struggle a bit and end up with near limits. I think the striper action is really going to get exciting once the water temperature drops a bit more,” added Hammond.
Captain Steve Mitchell of Hook’d Up Sportfishing has also been enjoying very good sturgeon fishing in Suisun Bay. On his most recent trip his clients got a keeper sturgeon and a pair of oversize fish. The oversize fish hit at the same time. They had several other bites on the trip, but no other fish were hooked. The day before Steve’s anglers got a pair of keepers, 4 shakers and a keeper striper.
