Sturgeon fishing in the fall

Bob Black enjoys sturgeon fishing each fall on the Menominee River with fishing partner Rick Herkimer. He is pictured holding a 41-inch sturgeon, that was caught and released. It took 15 to 20 minutes to bring the fish into the boat. Black said, “I hear they are delicious to eat, but they have to be 60 inches to keep, and this one was photographed and released quickly.” The season runs from the first Saturday in September to Sept. 30 on the Menominee River, a Wisconsin/Michigan boundary water. The fish was hooked with night crawlers on musky gear – pole, reel and net.  (submitted photo)
