Lake Erie Sturgeon stocking

Recommended Posts

That's really exciting news Ohio.  I love when efforts are made to repopulate our waters with native species, especially ancient ones like sturgeon. 

I've never ever seen a sturgeon in the wild in my life!

Mike, I have never seen one in the wild myself. There has been a few news reports over the years here of an occasional catch, but very few and very far between. 

I watched a video earlier this year of Mark Zona and Jordan Lee fishing Lake St. Clair, Jordan hooked one the estimated to be around 100 pounds, he played it for a long time but lost it.

That's unbelievable about Burbot in Erie.  I know a few people catch 'em icefishing on Lake Simcoe up here, but I've never heard of one being caught in Erie.  You certainly don't think of Erie for Burbot, anyway. 

Man, I gotta get out more!

Wonder if sturgeon eat gobies too?

Canuck, just guessing with a sturgeon's mouth being on the bottom of their face that bottom dwelling fish like gobies would be a prime meal for them? Aren't sturgeon typically bottom dwellers?

Gil, when I was very young I remember my dad talking about ice fishing for burbot " lawyers " at a place about 50 miles east of Cleveland, I don't know of anyone that has caught them recently. I was surprised to see them in the diving videos, most people I know don't bottom fish in those kind of depths though.

      Hi there! Looks like a great year for walleye fishing and Erie is one of the best places to go for them . Been lately on a few occasions my buddies and we limit by noon every single time . It didn't matter if it was wavy or still, trolling was the ticket. We had several double header, even a few triple headers... Cheers! Gino

      I'm currently on week 2 of my extended summer vacation and have been hard on getting some cabin building done. First thing needed was a dry, shady and bug free zone to chillax in when the working was done.   Threw up this temporary shack in a weekend.   Now onto the cabin building segment. Took a lot longer than expected to layout the foundation. Drilled 1/4" holes in the granite to drop my nails into to run my string lines.   Then it was time to dri

    • Kingston area eastern Lake Ontario salmon/trout fishing

      I used to run 27' boat out of Whitby trolling for Lake Ontario salmon and rainbow trout each summer, and I have been missing it. I moved just north of Kingston a dozen years ago and have concentrated on back lakes bass since then. When I was in Whitby, I could tell you exactly what week the salmon would appear, in what locations and at what depth the best fishing would be. Seldom got skunked if the fish were around. I am thinking of upgrading my 14' tin boat to something that could han
