spring sturgeon fishing

Recommended Posts

Hello, I am an avid sturgeon fisherman and have had good luck on the Rainy River, but I am looking to expand my spring fishing for these big boys. I am wondering if anyone knows any rivers/locations where you can find these fish in the spring? Nothing beats the pull of a big boy.....Thanks.

The Winnipeg River is a great sturgeon fishery, however IMO the Rainy has the edge. I have fished them both and I would give the Rainy the knod over the 'peg! If you're looking for bigger sturgeon then you might consider heading west to the Fraser or Columbia Rivers and have a go at those massive white's that patrol those waters! wink.gif Manitoba's Nelson, North Sask. and God's River system's are also super lake sturgeon fisheries!

Run a search in the LOTW and the Rainy river forums and you'll find lot's of info on Sturgeon fishing up here going way back to 2000-2001. Last years Sturgeon excursion thread had links to some good threads from years past.

    • Hello from the NW Angle!   Minnesota walleye fishing has been great using bottom bouncers and a night crawler. Anglers are being selective to fill limits with 16-18” fish as well as a few over 28 released. Most success has been in the mud, off of structure in 21-23 feet and 26-30 feet. The largest fish seem to come from South of Garden Island on crank-baits.   Canadian walleye are also most effectively targeted with bottom bouncers and spinners. Depth has not been as important as being at the bottom of a break line in the flat. Gold with chartreuse has been best as of late.  Musky activity has slowed from the prior weeks but expect it to ramp up with the full moon approaching. Perch have been schooled up on and around reefs topping out around 30 feet.   Water temps remain consistently in the low to mid 70’s.    Remember - fall is the time for trophy fish up at the NW Angle!   Until next week,   Sunset Lodge
    • It seems to be working😉
    • I've heard good things about the Browning's. 
    • Just curious- what about your old now is making you switch?   I've shot both and have no real concerns with either. Elite makes a nice bow and has several good options over the past few years. But... regardless of brand there are lots of good options out there. Shoot what feels good to you and hits where you're aiming. Totally generic,  but good advice IMO. 
    • I was surprised by that too Wanderer. I bought 2 of them about a month ago and am giving them a whirl. I've got 3 on bear baits right now. I'll have a feel for them in a couple weeks. 
    • I did not last year and I am not sure about this year.  I would sure like to.  New job and some new help at the hunt didnt allow me time to volunteer last year.  Hope this year is different.
    • The Moultrie M50 was rated 81/100 on Trailcam pro.  I was surprised to see the majority of the highest rated cameras were Browning.  I like the Browning brand for firearms but have considered many of their other products to be mid-level offerings.
    • I'm not sure Hoyt4 I've never messed with the video part. I'll take a look when I get home.
