With Spring Turkey season just around the corner, Henry USA sent us a video now posted on our homepage that I know you’ll get a kick out of. The point is though, young hunters and smaller hunters won’t get a kick out of it at all.

Day 15 Sturgeon Harvest Report

Only 1 more day remains in the 2019 sturgeon spearing season on the Winnebago System.  There were 34 fish registered today with Waverly Beach and Stockbridge Harbor combining to register 23 of those fish.  There have been 456 sturgeon harvested through the first 15 days of the season on Lake Winnebago and 763 sturgeon harvested from the system to date.  There were no 100 pound fish registered today, but there was one that came very close.  Andrew Schumacher of Chilton registered a 99.2 pound (74.0”) sturgeon at Stockbridge Harbor.  A more detailed breakdown of today’s harvest along with a photo of Andrew and his fish can be viewed through the following links:

Good luck to all sturgeon spearers going out for the last day of the season tomorrow!

Today’s Vignette: “What do spearers do with the fish?”

I’ve fielded a number of questions over the years about what the spearer does with a sturgeon after they register it.  Today’s vignette addresses that question and more?
