That is freakin awsome. They fight like hooking the back end of a truck don't they? Is that a White Sturgeon? It has more distinct scutes than the Lake Sturgeon we have here. If this keeps up we may need to add a Sturgeon subforum. Yours make number 3 I have seen posted on here. Way to cool. Best thing I have seen in days.

Edit: I'm adding my Lake Sturgeon so you can see the difference in the two species. Lake Sturgeon smooth out once they get up around 3' long. When they are a foot long type fish, they are like grabbing ahold of a seriously mad rose bush. Hard on the hands. A lot less well maked than your is. Yours is actually a pretty fish. I wish there was a way to like that post twice.

Depends on the species, we have 3 of them in MO, and 2 of them you can do whatever you want to with them.

Joni, we could have legally killed and kept that sturgeon, out here in OR they have a slot limit for them and that fish was within the slot. I and my fishing partners are well aware of all regulations and abide by the regs.

We did release the fish and david fought it with incredible skill. He put his rod and tippet to the limit in order to get the fish in quickly as we had no intention of keeping the fish. The fish swam off strongly, and while that can mean little I believe this fish was fine.

Thanks for the info. Idaho is a no go, which is strange as you see pictures of people holding their heads out of water ...I realize the weight and lack of bones is a main issue, but always struck me funny that the head and mouth weren't a concern...LOL

Thanks John and Dan..I have hope.

As far as I know, you can only keep the shovelnose in Missouri. The lake and palid are endangered...

Here you can. In fact till yesterday, when the season closed for them, you could clobber one. For the life of me I can't figure out why anyone would want to. Just what you really want to eat. A bottom feeder that is at least 25 years old, that is so fatty you can light them like a candle from a river with three paper mills. Not my idea of edible.

Then there is the whole thing where they only spawn once every 4 to 7 years (individual fish, there is a spawning run yearly) and don't do it till they are pretty close to 4 feet long. These are not a species that take being beaten up on very well.

I am sure it was. They are actually very tough fish.
