Many people in the Northwest say that Sturgeon fishing is the best fishing there is because there are lots of huge Sturgeon in Northwest waters and the Sturgeon fishing management has helped to maintain those numbers for several years now. Sturgeon is the best table fare you may ever try. It is a very white meat and not fatty or oily. Lightly sautéed in butter filets of Sturgeon are as good tasting fish as any in the World. Just add your favorite beverage and enjoy the feast that is what everyone in the Northwest has been able to keep secret for so many years.

Fishing for Salmon, Bass, Steelhead, Walleye and other species is fun but each has their drawbacks. Unpredictable runs, inconsistent eating habits, fair possibility of getting skunked and slower action or lack of strength can all be reasons that these fish are not as popular as Sturgeon. Many charters use phrases like "pound for pound fighting strength" when describing these other types of fish but who cares if a tiny fish is really strong when you can catch any average Sturgeon and they are HUGELY STRONG fighters and fun to catch. Catch several each outing and let a bunch go and keep a bunch. About the only complaint you'll ever hear from a Sturgeon fishing client is "Oooohhhh my arms are tired!"

STURGEON FISHING IS ADDICTING!!!
  • STURGEON FISHING IS ACTION PACKED!!!

  • STURGEON FISHING IS CATCHING LOTS OF FISH AND GETTING TO ENJOY THE FIGHTING ACTION OF EACH FISH BECAUSE THE BOAT IS NOT MOVING.

  • ANCHORING A BOAT AND WAITING FOR BITES MEANS YOU CAN TAKE A SIP OF COFFEE AND A EAT A SANDWICH IN-BETWEEN THE ACTION.

STURGEON FISHING IS ADDICTING!!!

  • STURGEON USUALLY BITE SOFTLY A FEW TIMES BEFORE BENDING THE POLE COMPLETELY OVER SO YOU DON'T HAVE AN "ANGRY GUIDE YELLING THAT YOU MISSED A BITE.

  • BETWEEN THE TIMES WHEN YOU ARE REELING, STURGEON FISHING IS RELAXING BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT CONSTANTLY TROLLING BACK AND FORTH GETTING YOUR LINE HUNG UP AND SNAGGED.

  • SETTING THE HOOK ON A HUGE STURGEON AND REALIZING THE SECOND YOU SET THE HOOK THAT THIS IS ONE OF THOSE OVER 10' MONSTERS IS A FEELING THAT YOU CAN'T DESCRIBE BECAUSE ....... WELL, BECAUSE YOU'VE JUST GOT TO BE THERE AND YOU CAN BY CALLING
