Yes, you read that correct :shock: ......Two boats, six guys, heavy rain, strong winds, and a heck of a lot of fish!!....We landed 18 sturgeon totalling over 90 feet. The largest one was an absolute monster at over 8 ft. The smallest to the boat was 42".....We got soaked, drank lotsa rum, had many laughs and everyone has sore arms today!! We caught 4 fish over 7 ft......Set a new "personal best" with a fish of 7ft. 2inches!! :D
By far the best sturgeon trip ever! Thanks to Dean Werk from Great River Fishing Adventures and the guides Greg & Dave we had an absolute blast!! Our boat lost the "biggest fish" award, but we caught more fish for the "total length" award.....Raised over $200.00 for our favourite charity at BC Children's Hospital......The "Cues for Kids Foundation".
I will forward a few pics to FishFinder with the hope that he will post for me.............Ortho 8)

what are we waiting for ribby???
let's go
Maybe that's what we should try and arrange for the fish out? I don't have any sturgeon gear, but we don't need a rod for everyone...just a glass and a chair for each of us, and enough bottles of macallan 18 yr to keep us warm... :wink:

I have been wanting to head out for some sturgies, problem is getting another rod and reel past the fiancee :roll:

Ortho, sounds like you had a phenominal day! I can't wait until I can get out for some of those dino's, it sure would make for an interesting day to try for some Coho in the morning and then head out to do some strugie fishing!

Hey Rib, I don't have the gear either, but if you want to share a trip??? I've always found it to be a good investment to hire a guide, both to catch fish, and learn the spots, and the techniques, so that when the time comes to buy the gear, you're well ahead on the old learning curve. :D

Hey Ogo'.......Some fine scotch will do that!!......It also keeps the arms from hurting so much...........Hey Rib'............A seven foot fish usually gets landed by three people taking turns on the rod cause it's kinda like having a tank on the end of your line......They go wherever they want!!........Ortho 8)

Nice fish! I'm heading to Abbotsford at the end of January and will do my annual steelie thing on the Vedder but now I'm thinkng NO! How about Sturgeon? What are my chances of hooking up then if I hire a guide for the day?
