The picture quality is kind of poor after resizing them and I forgot to comb my hair but I still thought they would be worth while to share.
It was only 30” long and wasn’t large enough to put up much of a fight. It was caught on a shrimp.
This carp as well as a pikeminnow (squawfish) thought they were sturgeon when they ate my sturgeon bait. The picture is kind of deceiving because this carp was only 18” long and I could hardly tell I had a fish on when I reeled him in.
Even though this guy was only about 12” long I took a picture of him because the camera was handy. He is also my first LMB for 2005.
This is a picture of me “putting my back into it”.
The sturgeon was about 65” (+/- 2”) and put up a 15 minute fight. It was caught on a 16” rainbows head/guts that I had only caught 15 minutes before this guy decided to bite. The fresh bait seemed to be best but we did catch one other sturgeon on a sardine and had bites on some of the frozen 6”-10”rainbows. We also caught several rainbows, pikeminnows and a few large shinners when we were collecting fresh bait. Overall it was a fun trip and the weather was mild but it was nice to take a shower when I got home.
