Lake Sturgeon Hook and Line Angling Opportunities in Wisconsin
Article authored by multitude of WDNR biologists
By: Ryan Koenigs
Lake sturgeon are the largest and longest lived fish species in the Great Lakes drainage and were historically abundant throughout their native range of the Great Lakes, Mississippi River and Hudson Bay drainages. However, overharvest, migration barriers, pollution, and habitat destruction have resulted in a significant decline in fish populations throughout their range and extirpation of many populations. Wisconsin is right in the heart of the lake sturgeon’s range and remains home to some of the species most successful management programs (http://dnr.wi.gov/topic/fishing/sturgeon/lakesturgeonidentification.html).

This is known as “rutting.” As the larvae start to rise in the water, the fish gorge themselves on this very simple meal. A lot of fish we catch this time of year actually have the skin worn right off their upper lips, and you can see the bugs inside of their mouths. Continue Reading

Canada Trip 2019
Another bucket list item was checked off my list earlier this month as I traveled to Stanley’s Resort in the west arm of Eagle Lake located in Ontario, Canada. Let me tell ya, everything you hear about Canada and the fishing, is 100% true! I had an absolute blast spending a full week on the water chasing walleye, northern, smallmouth and lake trout.
