It ain’t Halloween yet and the freaks were out in full force tonight. First up was this sturgeon who apparently likes to bar fight. Down to one barbel and half a nose, but it was a fat 54” and full of piss and vinegar. The scutes were still really sharp for that size, so it must be a rather young fish. Next was this little football. 29” and 8 pounds. The picture doesn’t do it justice. For reference, I got a normal looking 30” one shortly afterwards that weighed 4.5 pounds. This fish might grow up to be a 60” long adult with a 40” girth. It was the most vocal sturgeon I’ve ever caught. It grunted the whole time from before it came aboard to as it was swimming away. Finally I got my first SCR burbot. I think the boat is going to stink for a week.
