    Walleyes 049.jpg I like to catch them by jigging. They don't swallow the hook...

Then I see three dudes there fishing. So I sneak up in the bushes and listen in for a bit. They're fishing for sturgeon. And they're talking about ones they've caught there before. I sneak back out do a few fist pumps on the way back to the car. I have no gear with me so I go back home.

    After about an hour im too amped to fall asleep so I grab my 11'6" clarus matched up with a king pin and go out to my usual spot, because its so close to home, to pin up some goldeye. Its like I'm fishing for coho in slow water. Small foam float, little piece of lead and a half a dew worm on a short leader. Immediately I'm into goldeye. And somewhere I the next hour and a half of consistent action I also manage a small walleye. My first one ever. And I caught it on the pin lol

    Part of me gets it and admires it (desperate fisherman making the best of it) and the other part depresses the hell out of me. haha

    I don't like to catch them at all. By catch and caught on a single barbless, fell right out anyways...

    Ugg, tell me about it. I wouldn't wish this kind of fishing on anyone who is passionate about west coast fishing but its all I've got for now. Hopefully I can start to figure out the sturgeon soon, its really my last hope. I really don't want to be one of those guys who talks about the great fishing that he used to do and now just wanders the river at the meat holes not doing anything awesome anymore

    It was fantastic.

    After work I had to drive a buddy home who lives close to me so I stopped in back at my place to refuel and pick up my gear. Ended up at the river around d 6am or so. Strung up the 10.5' bar rod, attached a 5 oz pyramid sinker and tied on a 2/0 gammi on a 30lb braided leader with a shiner for bait and tossed it out.

    About an hour later I get some small taps, I gently pick up the rod, the taps stop, I put the rod down. I get some more small taps, I gently pick up the rod, the taps stop, I put the rod down. I get some more small taps, I gently pick up the rod, the taps stop, I put the rod down. I get some more small taps and let it sit. It turns into a good pull i set the hook hard. Immediately the line starts coming for the surface and I know what going to happen. Sturgeon jump! I was both excited and terrified lol OMG I hooked one! OMG I really don't want to lose it!

    Pic. Release. Rebait.

    15 min later a fish hits like a freight train. Party time! This fish is bigger and runs some line and fights hard for a few minutes before also coming in for a quick pick and release.

    I stuck it out for another hour or so but nothing more happened. Two hours, two lake sturgeon. Oh ya, its on now.
