Hey Bob! This is my first keeper Sturgeon after years of trying! It was 50 inches long and was caught on pile worms and eel in the Montezuma Slough at approximately 7:00 PM on the very end of the out going tide. Cheers, John Stensrud.

  Tim quickly released this little fella back into the waters of the Carquinez Strait. He took a bait meant for a much larger fish. Note the lighter coloration when they first come out of the water.
