Now it starts.  Too much to keep up with in Wisconsin, and that is one nice problem for an outdoorsman. OWO Columnist Wayne Morgenthaler and his son Neal spelled double trouble for two Richland County gobblers after four days of not filling tags. We put the May-June issue of On Wisconsin Outdoors to bed last week with 100,000 copies being distributed statewide. Look for your copy at any Kwik Trip statewide…that’s 400 stores ...

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?
