Since i have not been on the forums in a while..

I caught 3 undersized sturgeon back in july on the Columbia, the biggest of them measured in at 35in, almost to the washington state limit of 38in :(

Caught all of them with frozen shirmp lol.. on a treble hook and corkie, went poorly prepared but all n all had a nice day catching a buzz :dance:

Here's one of the little guys,

Its a good idea to go over the book when fishing for a new species just save ya from a ticket not a good idea to drink and run a boat either

Isn't it single barbless hook on none floating lures or something like that in the CR. Nice fish but it's very important to check the regs before you head out.

Yes beaver ur right single barbless hook 3/4 or larger and its statewide no treble hooks sturgeon have a very sensitive mouth and treble hooks do a lot of damage to those senses i totally agree with the no treble hook law!!

Also its a good idea to keep gators in the water as much as possible since they have no bone structure they rely on the weightlessness of water and removing them from the water for very long can damage there inner organs they may swim off but might die soon after from internal bleeding or damage just from the weight of there own inards just food for thought for all gator catchers!!
