This awesome dinosaur was caught while catfishing in the morning in Le Sueur. At 27 1/2 inches in length, and weighing at 8 pounds, this thing put up a good struggle. ...more After releasing it, my friend caught one too (just an inch shorter). Nothing feels better than catching your first sturgeon, especially with a friend. I can't wait to catch it's bigger cousin sometime!
I caught this 27 1/2 incher while fishing for springtime crappie with a slip bobber set-up. At 10 pounds, this thing took 9 minutes to land on my ultralight rod ...more (thank you Ugly Stik!). He was safely released after the photo op. Hopefully, someone else will have the chance to tussle with Garfield now.
