Sturgeon Spearing Report Day 10

DNR Winnebago System Sturgeon Biologist Ryan Koenigs writes:

Today’s sturgeon harvest took quite a dip compared to yesterday as 21 fish were registered today.  Calumet Harbor (Pipe) lead the way with 10 fish registered, followed by Wendt’s (5), Stockbridge (4), and Payne’s Point (2).  There was a single fish registered that pushed over 100 pounds on the scale and that was the 124.2 pound, 71.5” female sturgeon registered at Calumet Harbor by Lucas Wagner of St. Cloud (pictured).  Today was also a good day for the Manderscheid family of New Holstein as the brother-sister combination of Gordon Manderscheid and Stella Manderscheid each harvested fish (pictured below).  Gordon’s fish was 62.6 pounds (66.2”) while Stella’s fish was 51.6 pounds (59.7”).
