9 foot White Sturgeon for the Captain

Our jaws dropped when this Sturgeon first exploded out of the Fraser River! What do guides do after a charter? Well, we go fishing. Yesterday was no different. Mike(one of our guides) hooked up with me around 5pm to hit the river and Sturgeon fish for a bit. The weather was sweet so we just had to go. We went up the Fraser from the Mission boat launch about 10 minutes and dropped anchor. Baits were carefully selected and cast into the depths where they lay deliciously on the bottom. We wait now. Didn’t have to wait long however, maybe 5 minutes. Mike’s rod went thump thump and then the […]
