Sturgeon Update 2-9-14

Here's the Sunday report from the DNR's Ryan Koenigs...

Day 2 of the 2014 sturgeon spearing season is in the books and, similar to yesterday, spearers were able to harvest some very nice fish. The south end of Lake Winnebago was once again the hot spot with Wendt’s on the Lake leading the way with 76 fish on day 2. The registration station at Jim and Linda’s Super Club in Pipe was not far behind with 58 fish being registered there today. 
The harvest from day 2 was roughly half that of day 1, meaning that the season will likely go a few days into this week. The season on the Upriver Lakes came down to the wire today and the harvest was very close to emergency closure due to reaching 100% of the adult female harvest cap. In fact, the Upriver Lakes season would have ended after today if 1 more adult female would have been harvested. So the season will end at 1:00 PM tomorrow, lasting just 3 short days. The success rate for spearers on the Upriver Lakes has been very high this year, with 319 fish already having been harvested from a potential 469 license holders.

As I stated earlier, there were some very nice fish harvested today. Don Feldner registered his 148.0 pound, 74.6” lake sturgeon at Jim and Linda’s today in Pipe, which is the largest fish harvested in 2014 up to this point.

Brandon Parker was also walking a little taller as he registered his 137.6 pound, 78.0” at Payne’s Point.
Another large fish was registered at Critter’s in Winneconne when Shelly Gubrandsen brought in here 132.0 pound, 77.2” sturgeon,
Until my report tomorrow, stay warm out there and I hope to see you proudly displaying your sturgeon at one of our registration stations in the upcoming days!
