Winnebago System Sturgeon Spearing Season 2009

Thursday, February 19. -Although the Upriver Lakes sturgeon spearing season closed yesterday, the season on Lake Winnebago continues on. Lake Winnebago spearers were happy to hear the season on the big lake will likely go on for a couple more days before harvest caps are reached. The slow harvest pace guarantees an open season tomorrow (Friday February 20) and the current harvest rate projects the fishery being open for the weekend crowd on Saturday. The best water clarity and success still remains in the northern half of the lake, especially off the Stockbridge and Quinney areas. Four more fish 100 pounds or larger were registered today bringing the season total of these trophy sized fish to 29. The largest today was a 132.1 pound, 74.9 inch female registered at Jerry's Bar Registration Station by Brett Ellis of Omro.
