Today I guided Dick and Bill for Sturgeon. We headed out to the Sacramento River to see if we could have any luck during the day, since the bite was a day bit on my last trip. We launched at Ward's Landing and fished from 7:00-3:00 with absolutely no sturgeon action! We saw a few sturgeon roll and had a few bites, but only one that I could say was a sturgeon. It was a great day on the water and you could not have asked for better weather.

We headed back up to the anchor and got the rods out and fishing again. Around 7:00 the rod doubled over again and it was fish on!! Right off the bat the fish jumped completely out of the water and we could tell it was a keeper sized fish. We fought the fish for 20 minutes and eventually got it next to the boat and into the net. A quick tape job measured out a 49" male, that was to be destined for our dinner table!
We fished the rest of the night with no action at all and surrendered around 8:00 AM. We had a great time on the water and I know those fish will not soon be forgotten in the boys memory. In all reality I think the big one may have scared the hell out of them!!

She should know better than that !! It may not be the reason that we did not catch any fish but it sure as hell gave me an excuse and a reason to harass her all day!!
Even though we did not catch any fish it sure was nice to be out on the water, and anyone who has fished sturgeon before knows that happens alot! They are a mysterious creature and only bite when they decide they want to.
