Another great sturgeon fishing weekend!

This last weekend of April proved to be great once again for sturgeon fishing.   The water is still cold and the sturgeon apparently haven't moved down river for their summer routines just yet.

Over the weekend I had the opportunity to introduce two anglers to sturgeon fishing, helping them to land their first dinosaurs.   On Saturday Jonathan landed 12 while on Sunday in just about 4 hours on the water, Alexei landed 4 and lost a fifth.    Great work by both anglers!

In addition to helping these guys catch their first sturgeon I was able to introduce both to the Old Town Predator kayak.   Jonathan has caught big fish before, much bigger than our shortnose sturgeon, and had been in kayaks before, but never had the expereience of catching fish like this from kayak.   It was a new and memorable experience, and the Predator proved to be an ideal boat for him.   Alexei had never been in kayak before, and was tremendously impressed with the experience.   Once he got the hang of paddling, he seemed like a pro and was very comfortable and confident the whole time.

Hopefully the sturgeon will stick around for at least another week, so that I can perhaps help a few others experience the thrill of catching dinosaurs from kayak.   If you or someone you know would like to give it a go, have a look at my guided fishing page!   After that we will move onto some other great fishing opportunities such as sea run trout, shad, lake trout and more!
