Just a pic from a DNR sturgeon survey I volunteered for last week below Wissota dam. We ended up with 37 that day. Got another pic or two on a differenct cam.

How did you survey these fish? Electro-shocking? Netting?

Also, how did you find out about this opportunity to volunteer for surveying?

We used gill nets. I know the local biologist through our chapter of Muskies Inc - several of our members volunteer for various DNR projects. I'm hoping to get in on a fall shocking survey.

That's why I am working towards a career in the DNR.

Cool fish!

Yeah, I'm a biology major and have a huge interest in the DNR. Too bad it is very competitive right out of school!! Not the best time right now to be job hunting either. If you ever need any more volunteers sometime, let me know!

I strongly considered going into the dnr when I got out of high school, but it's really tough to get a job unless you're REALLY a standout student. If you really are interested work your tail off, get the best grades possible, and you might have a chance. Doesn't hurt to have some connections, too!

They ended up with over 100 new fish for the week between there and the Jim Falls dam. Lots of recaptures from past years, past days, and even caught several fish twice in the same day. If they didn't have them already they got a floy tag, a metal tag(green and you can see one on the pic on the top fin by the tail), a pit tag, and if in good shape a pectoral fin sample for aging - that where the blood on the fish's throat area is from.

    •   I'm on my second copy, the binding is not very good and before you know it pages begin to fall out, but as far as explaining technique, meat handling safety, use of curing salts and spices I think the book is a great resource.  I've given several copies to friends.  As far as the recipes, they are somewhat standard, but the same can be said for many other sausage books or online sources. I seem to make personal changes (like increasing garlic and black pepper) to most sausage recipes plus I sample a pattie to access the seasonings and will adjust if needed. I do think the amount of added fat is a little heavy handed for me, I find ground pork butt to perfect for me.  I prefer to make my own seasoning mix, and use very fresh spices... We order 3 times a year from spice companies to keep everything fresh, I only buy spices from the grocery store in an emergency, there is no guarantee of their freshness. 
    •   Auu, great plan. Oh by the way. Those aren't nails sticking through the roof sheeting is it? You may find a Shishkabob bird some morning if they get to running each other around in there!
    •   Auu, since it's not a Faith based discussion it should be pretty easy for you both to use humanist science facts to come to the same conclusion and agreement. Carry on!  
    • If our politicians were serious about reducing the cost of healthcare  they would be addressing the big pharma companies.   Check this out: http://wendellpotter.com/2016/03/the-lobbyist-who-made-you-pay-more-at-the-drugstore/    In my simple view of the world all that would be needed is a law passed saying the pharmaceutical companies could not charge more than 10% for the same drugs as is being charged by the next highest countries cost.  That would save Trillions over a 10 year period ( Caveat, I made that number up, but you get the idea )

    • In this depth range I still use the DT10. Unless the weeds are growing up quite a bit. If they are then I will use the DT6. 
    • the complete ridge line of the roof is a vent.    
    •   Thought, small vents at top ends? Peeeu!
