How can fisherman not be intrigued with them though? They grow huge, put up a great fight, and have a look like no other.
Most of the time you see sturgeon, especially large ones fished is massive bodies of water like the Fraser River in B.C., Canada. This is a unique video showing a fella fishing sturgeon like I’ve never seen before.
He’s using the old spot and cast method but he’s on a mission to find a monster in this Idaho creek. He spots one right away but continues on down the small channel to find a bigger one not falling to its temptations.
His patience pays off as floats over three monster sturgeon and decides to set up and fish. He hooks in a giant that is jumping out of the water. You would never guess that fish this large are in this small waterway.
The man fights the fish all over the place eventually getting it to shore and up on the weeds. He estimates it at 7.5-feet long. An absolute giant.
He realizes it and goes back up to find some more fish. This time he sets his GoPro up perfect on his line and gets some pretty incredible footage of a sturgeon taking his bait underwater.
Now, if you’re willing to risk losing a GoPro, this is a fish that its worth doing it for. Watch the big ol’ prehistoric beast coming up is a sight to see.
He lands another sturgeon, for what I would call a pretty amazing day of fishing.
