I would love to catch a sturgeon on hook and line. I'm not much for spearing but I don't generally keep the fish that i catch anyway.
I was out on Winnebago (off of Faro Springs Rd) on the spearing opener, looking for something to hit a tipup, We had 7 flags but not one fish on the ice. There was a lot of ice (30" or more) and a ton of people. We waited unit spearing was over for the day to drill our holes, so we did not bother the spearers. It was a good time. Jason
