Day 11 Sturgeon Report

DNR Sturgeon Biologist Ryan Koenigs writes:

I’ve been talking in many of my reports about the reduction in spearing effort, and in turn harvest. Well, today the inevitable finally happened; we had a 0 fish harvest on Lake Winnebago. I’m not sure when the last 0 was recorded for a day of spearing on Lake Winnebago, but I’m pretty confident that it predates my tenure with the DNR dating back to the 2008 spearing season. May be a good trivia question in future spearing seasons.

There was 1 fish harvested on the Upriver Lakes today. Derek Hanneman wins the perseverance award with today’s lone fish, and it was a nice one (65.7″ and 82.4 pounds).

As the saying goes, “the show must go on,” and thus the season will continue tomorrow.
