KennewickGuy This one was just barely legal in that it was almost too big. They get much bigger than that There's a small range of size that you're allowed to keep, anything over or under has to be released.

Yeah, when we got him home the fillets were cut off and divided up. One of the guys I was with said he's going to put a bunch of it in his smoker, that should turn out really yummy. It's been a long time since I ate sturgeon, but I remember it being similar to halibut in texture but tasting better

Pecos- Yep, it was quite a fight. I wasn't timing it, but I'd guess it took about 10-15mins to get him to the boat. He kept running the line out, but eventually got tired and I won Now I'm totally jonesing to go out again, lol.

Kate DANG! That's a BIG fish, and just barely legal?

I'd hate to see one all grown up.

PecosRiver It's been over 30 years since I caught a sturgeon. I remember it like it was yesterday. What a fight, it took forever to land it.

Caught my first sturgeon today!

Actually, caught two of them. First was a small one, only about 32". Second one was just barely within the legal limit at almost 54" and weighed in a 45lbs. Was an awesome day, got my BL installed on the Jeep, then went out fishing for about 90mins and caught two! Was exciting enough for me that I just had to share a pic
